Thanks to everyone who took time to express opinions on my navel gazing contemplation on completion of my 365daysofbiking goal. I really was touched by the unexpectedly large amount of goodwill expressed about the project by a hugely diverse range of commentors. The compliments, encouragement and kindness are not something I’ll readily forget.
By a very large majority, you seem to want me to continue, but maybe to ease up a bit. Last night, and this morning, I was ready, and had psyched myself up to finish it. I was going to stop. By lunchtime, you’d changed my mind.
The problem is I can’t do it piecemeal; knowing the way I work on the main blog, 365days would just continually get pushed back until it was forgotten, and folk would stop visiting it for new posts. So, really, to me at least, it’s all or nothing. I may well reduce to one photo a day in time – we’ll see how it goes.
The thing is, there were very few days when I’d not have been on a bike anyway – that is my life. It’s how I roll.
Sorry, I couldn’t resist that.
It occurs to me that the nights are opening out, the crocuses and snowdrops are kicking off, and soon, it’ll be spring again. It would be very, very hard not to share that, after all.
This hasn’t just been some dull exercise in self indulgence. It’s hard to know how people view stuff you create when they’re not directly involved. Thank you all for being interested enough to comment, and maybe engaged enough to view the past 21 months with pleasure.
