1,000km can seem like a long way in a car let alone on a bicycle. Add that it is unsupported, off-road mountain biking in temperatures as high as 40C and we're talking about a serious endurance challenge.

My latest attempt to see if that continues to be true was to try and cycle up the very famous, tough and unforgiving, Mount Ventoux at the bottom of the Alps, six times in one single day. I would be only the 13th, and oldest, Britain to achieve it. 2886 metres of climbing in one day.

The glistening eyes and the humming noise of London hasn't disappeared. Pulling out the gold medal, often from my grubby pocket - I see children's and adult's eyes light up. It takes them back to London 2012; a period in time where perceptions of disability changed for the better. People saw what can be done, rather than can't.

Growing up with Gaucher disease, I wasn't allowed to participate in sports at school and often felt left out, but knew my bones were weak and fragile.

If you're a man who fancies himself as the next Sir Chris Hoy - but you don't want to lose any of your prowess in the bedroom - there's good news.

The bikes are normally blue but this summer there's a limited number of yellow bikes to celebrate the Tour de France coming through London and as I arrived at the bicycle stand there was a special yellow bike among the blue bikes.
