Cycling JOGLE and the Ripple Effect - Emma Wood
In May 2023, Emma Wood embarked on a two week adventure cycling the length of the UK from John O'Groats to Land's End.As a busy mum of two girls, with a successful career in financial services, the logistics surrounding this journey were half the battle. But having got a taste of long distance cycling during a 4 day trip cycling unsupported from Dorset to Cornwall, she was ready for a bigger challenge . Accompanied by her dad in the support van,  she set off cycling solo from the north of Scotland on the adventure of her life. Whilst others have completed this nonetheless challenging route, Emma's story is extraordinary in that it shows what is possible amongst all the other commitments in our daily lives and the importance of taking time for ourselves s. It would have been totally understandable for Emma to say she was too busy or that she was needed by her family. But by listening to and validating the voice that told her that she needed to do this for herself,  Emma has achieved something amazing and inspired many others to dare to dream and do along the way.    This is an honest and engaging conversation about the guilt and challenges we experience as parents when we decide to head on a solo adventure as well as the benefits we encounter when doing do - and the positive ripple effect that these adventures can have on those around us too.Find out more about Emma on Instagram at @wildlyemazing I hope you have enjoyed this episode of The Everyday Adventure Podcast!
