I started the blog for several reasons. A key one was to share one rider's journey into the extreme sport of ultra-distance riding. There were few such accounts around when I did my first 300+km ride. Endurance riding was a big step into the unknown for me and I wanted an honest, informative picture of what it was like. What is more, I wanted it from a real person; i.e. a person I could identify with. In writing this blog, I have tried to be that real person and my target audience has been myself those five years ago.
At some stage I would like to look back on that journey. However, that's for another day. Enough now to take heart in knowing that the blog has been successful in meeting a need. I hope it continues to do so. I would like to thank you all for allowing me to be a part, even the smallest part, of your own journeys.
