    As someone who has just finished cycling across Europe for charity, I couldn’t agree more with the steps given here. It’s too easy to back down, too easy to be scared (understandably) and never set your foot out the door.

    Tell someone and keep badgering on about it to them. The more people you tell, the more pressure you have to go and get on with. If you can, find a friend who may find it interesting as well. Tell them and keep on at them until they get on-board with the idea, then there’s half the organisation to do, someone to share the experience with, and someone to help you put your foot out the door (while you do the same for them!).
