Yesterday morning I did the Great Dublin Bike Ride
with my dad.
He’s in his 60’s but would do a few cycles a week.
Where as I hadn’t been on a bike in years.
So while it was only the 60k route that we did
it was something completely new to me.
For the last 10 years,
I’ve been relying on 1 hour gym sessions
and 1 hour games of 5aside.
So the idea of doing a 3 hour cycle
was completely out of the ordinary for me.
So the night before the event, all the doubts started to set in.
“how will my legs hold up”
“How will my arse be on the saddle for so long”
Even though I knew it would be great experience,
cycling around the city
and having some of the busy roads closed off
so you didn’t have to worry about the traffic.
And it didn’t disappoint.
The weather was great
and everyone doing it was in top form
supporting and encouraging each other along the way.
I never would have done that sort of distance on my own.
So I thoroughly enjoyed.
And even though I knew I would
(hence the reason I booked it)
I still had those doubts creeping in the night before.
That fear of the unknown.
And if had the fear to stop me.
I would have missed out on the whole experience.
I know this is only small in comparison to a lad
who hasn’t done any training in years.
And is trying to get back into doing a bit.
The thought of joining Bulletproof Dad
can be absolutely terrifying.
Even though you’ve seen the results it’s produced
and you know it’s exactly what you NEED.
If so, the reality is mate
I have grown men look me in the eye
and tell me it’s “the best decision they ever made”
So if you’re genuinely thinking about it.
Here’s the application link to get me on the phone:
