When people see Oliver riding a bike and ask me questions about it, I always make sure to also emphasize the importance of cycling for Oliver to develop his self-confidence. Cycling for him has never been a mere hobby or a way to get to the scene. It is a state of flow, a source of confidence, of meditation, of self-affirmation, of happiness. If you're curious, I wrote in an article about how cycling has helped to build Oliver's confidence, which eventually reflected every aspect of his life (bio link).
“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.”
