Bank Holiday Pain – To Be A Cyclist Is To Be A Student Of Pain !

31 08 2010
Ben Roethlisberger’s coach give him this in his early years,I heard it on America’s Game and thought WOW,That’s  something to remember !

Success is failure turned inside out
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt;
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems afar,
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit;
It’s when things seem worst that you mustn’t quit

The poem, entitled So when I did the 3rd lap of Mottram Moor, heading for a finish on werneth low, I reminded myself of that line, “You never can tell how close you are” I am so close in my journey, now its time I ramp it up again and again and again, I need to kick so freaking hard now, and thats just what I did yesterday.

Bank Holiday PAIN !!!!!!

I am never going to quit, I am going to get to my goal and I sure as hell will make sure that I do it with the same style and effort I have been putting in since day 1, here we are, 2 years down the line, I am  still losing, finishing what I started, never wanting to quit, no matter how much pain I am in, I’m in a fight with obesity and I am still winning, the knock out is just around the corner.

Below is a video of the 4 climbs, Enjoy !





PhotoVideo 3.0, Amazing Shrinking Gaz The 39 Stone Cyclist’s Progress To August 2010

24 08 2010

PhotoVideo’s have helped me stay focused since I started my long journey, The other day I heard a song on the TV and thought, humm time for a new one, but I questioned if I had the pictures to go with the song !

I didn’t need to worry, I’m not only proud of the results I have so far achieved but also the quality of production in this video,

so ENOUGH from me,

Turn your sound up and get ready for Queen and Gaz together in a feel good PhotoVideo:

For bike week 2009 I did an interview with a magazine at work, as part of that they made a cardboard cut out of the “Before” me and did a photo shoot, today I was talking to a college at work about the cardboard cut out when we went off to find it,

after we did I decided to do Photo Shoot mark 2:

BHOD In Video

10 08 2010

A few weeks ago I did a post about “The Big Hill Of Death” in Pictures.

Well last week, while still on the Comeback 3.0 trail I managed to capture an attempt of BHOD on film.

A few points to note here are:

I am still injured from the RTC

I was tired, my legs were like lead

So I made it from bottom to top in around 3 Mins 30 Seconds, so while it wasnt a really slow time, I know I can shave soooo much more off it, but again it’s not a bad place to use as a base to start from !
