Seriously though. Comes a time when we've all had enough of something.We've just left the EU - the forecast for the UK is bright and sunny
I had enough in 1981 and stopped being a 'serious' racer, stopped chasing national ambition and returned to club runs and local time trials. In 1984 I went for a steady ride around local lanes to relax and clear my head after a day's revision for my degree and had an argument with a car driver who forced me into a ditch and then threatened me ( I was lucky to get away without a black eye/broken nose, he was a big guy). I decided that I wasn't getting the same enjoyment out of cycling anymore and stopped completely and started running.
I came back in the early 90s when my dad bought me a Saracen Tuff Trax mtb (out of some inheritance money from his brother). I started riding off-road at weekends on Cannock Chase and slowly the passion returned.
Take care and all the best.
