I started riding for the GCC in 2013 because I was a student, not earning a great deal of money but felt the need to give back. In my 20's my Dad was diagnosed with Cancer and my Grandfather died of cancer. I am sure most people know someone who has had the same diagnoses or even lost someone too. I was already cycling a lot, so I thought why not?!
You can't prevent a storm but you can prepare for it. You can't control how someone else behaves but you can control how you react. You can control your effort and your attitude. When you put your energy into the things you can control, you'll be much more effective.
