… Hold on tight, yet relax, drop your shoulders and engage your personal shockies – pay attention to the process, the here and now, avoid as many potholes as possible (because there’s bound to be a few!)
… Never take your eyes off the road, look forward – never look behind, whatever’s happening back there has nothing to do with your wellbeing in this moment
… Don’t use your mirrors – they’re reflecting what’s behind you and stealing your attention from focusing on what’s ahead – your destination – and getting there safely
… Relax and become a part of the ebb and flow, don’t go against the tide, you’ll come unstuck
… Keep an eye on those who are doing it successfully, and comfortably and learn from them. Watch the locals! Forget everything you’ve ever learnt, and re-learn the ‘local way’
… Be prepared – Always keep your rain poncho in the seat and NEVER leave home without your helmet!
… Ride with your head high, enjoy the wind in your face, wave to the smiling faces on the way past, and show gratitude at every turn – what a wonderful journey this life is!
