PARRABUDDY.BLOGSPOT was started to help find a way for “Adaptive / Physically Challenged / Paralympic Cyclists ” to enjoy riding their bikes on the Daily Route of the famous Pro Tour Race Routes such as the “ Giro d’Italia " and the " Tour de France " !

Through lack of support i have been unable to achieve that goal and unless people decide to assist there is little chance that my 19th season will be any more successful !

London 2012 Paralympics was amazing for ALL , not just those participating but those who followed via the Media !

Since 2009 several other Blogs have been created to cover various other subjects !

Below is a guide to their separate purposes :

In the main Parrabuddy is about “Adaptive / Physically Challenged Sport” and Health Issues.

Skippi-cyclist is about personal issues and Road Safety Issues.

SkippyAus is about matters relating to Oz and some personal memories from my life there.

Tourdafarce & Tourdafrance are about matters relating to the Pro Tour , Racers and some personal experiences during my various visits to ride the Pro Tour routes .

Skippy (blogging) is about a variety of issues on the Internet .

NOT ALL postings arrive in their correct area but I will generally try to separate my views on Doping and Sporting Fraud from Road Safety Issues .

Comments ARE WELCOMED since this shows that those reading are interested in the subject matter ! Enjoy comments made to other blogs so wonder why only " anonymous " posts here !

Over the period of these "Blogs" I have had visibility on Twitter as “Skippydetour” and on Facebook as “Skippy Mc Carthy” where Google usually advise postings on the Blogs as they occur .

When any of you visit these Blogs I hope I am able to add value to your day and provide a source of information if not inspiration . Please consider asking your friends and contacts to add their support as many of the Para Athletes are struggling to find the resources to compete in Events at regional Levels let alone National Levels .

You the reader have the possibility to help these Amazing Athletes in your own way and contacting your National Paralympic Internet Site for relevant info is a good start !

Title of the blog entry published today by

“ 637daystogo “ ! Second Gold Paralympic Cycling World Championship Medal won by this former “ fatty “ ! This guy spends so much time doubting his amazing ability that I was expecting to hear that he had failed to make the podium in this event . I was delighted to then see the photo of him on the top step having conquered the man he thought would be the race winner !

Whilst in the business world I was always aware of the expression “ Fail to plan , plan to fail !” but also “ Conceive , believe and Achieve !” and whilst there are many out there that work hard for their achievements there are others that are able to set aside their self doubt and concentrate their efforts on being victorious in their endeavours !

Seems to me that Colin , now that he has won this second Gold Medal can concentrate on setting aside any doubts that he will win medals in London 2012 Para Games ? Of course it is for him to decide which colours he wants !

Congratulations Colin on this superb victory for Ireland , I am sure it will inspire the other team members !
