    I am really pleased that the radio interviews have come on stream. Well done to those at OCD-UK and members patrons and all who made this happen. Great awareness and help. Brii - ii - ant! !!!

Today's 70 mile ride through South Wales is dedicated to Phili whose last few years have been dominated by OCD. Life will get better Phili! 70 miles through the Welsh hills in the pouring rain ridden for you by Prof Salkovskis. I was his domestique today due to injury.

    We've had non-stop torrential rain, thunder & lightning. Whahhhh

    I know ! I think I will still need to make the occasional journey to The Midlands, and there is the gym /pool - and several charity shops I could do a turn in.
    And I can get cracking on the music again.
    But ......whaaahhhhhhh I prefer summer! !!!!!!

    I managed to break-out from intense family duties down to the fishing lakes on Tuesday. I chose one with a café to retreat to if the rains came. They did, I had a nice lunch, but still got mud all over my kit despite my waterproofs and fishing umbrellas.
    It brought home to me the incredible endeavour of the JOGLE riders battling on for miles through rain and floods.

    I got worried for them yesterday because of the heavy rain they endured, but as another example to us, they faced up to that obstacle and then "rode" over it. Absolutely heroic. Keep going team !

    In Perth now, long hard day of up and down hills, really hard. My first bath for a long time, rooms had showers before. Tomorrow is longer and harder.

Planning on getting the train tomorrow to go and spend a weekend with a friend. It's a very long time since I did anything like this especially as I will be travelling alone. It's weird but I've gone from agoraphobic to this and I am actually looking forward to the journey.
