Jonathans Around the Bay in a Day

Yo guys, this weekend i am about to partake in this colossal bike ride called "Around the Bay in a Day" cycling a total of 250km in one day is going to be no walk in the park. I am fundraising for a great cause called Beyond Blue. The reason i am linking up with Beyond Blue for this event is because for me in the essence of why i cycle is closely connected to overcoming big hurdles in life such as anxiety, stress and depression. The first time i ever cycled properly was when i was in Japan, i came up with the grand plan to cycle around the whole of Japan in one month, the day i embarked on this voyage i had only ever cycled 40kms in one day. With my Goal very clear to start and finish in Tokyo i covered over 5500kms circamnavigating the length of Japan twice some days covering over 260kms. What i learnt in this time goes far beyond getting on a bike with a keen spirit and open mind, this voyage became a soul searching experience almost a pilgrimage you could say in finding oneself, never in my life have i ever felt so much love for the world, never have i ever felt so connected so much stillness and peace from within then when i was in the saddle. Cycling has amazing healing benefits and that is the reason why i am doing this event. Lets all make a difference and contribute to our neighbours to our love ones our friends and the people whom we care about, contribute to Beyond Blue today and support this non for profit to make a true difference!
