BikingMan Oman: A new start!

As I swing left to rejoin a properly tarmacked road, I realise that it is here that I have just won my own race, regardless of what will happen next. This is the defining moment of BikingMan Oman for me. The moment where I overcame my fear of gravel and freed myself of the excuses. I have bloody well done it. I yell into dark, into the wind, to nobody else than myself…


“The same boiling water that softens the potato hardens the egg. It’s about what you’re made of, not the circumstances”. This is the quote that my ‘be the egg’ mantra refers to. A mantra that helps me when the going gets tough and will hopefully help to set new LEJOG & 1,000 miles records this year.
