It has been a year now since I officially told everyone about my plans to ride a round the world on a motorbike solo. I now have less than three months until I set off. And I can't wait! I was worried at the beginning as to how I would feel a year later after announcing the plan.
In 2010 a good friend and member of my squadron was unfortunately killed in action whilst we were serving in Afghanistan together. We later set up The Blanchard Challenge in memory of William Blanchard.
