Today’s guest has survived cancer twice and been hit by a truck at 70mph. By all accounts, he shouldn’t be here. Yet James Golding has gone on to be a world record-breaking endurance cyclist – and raise £4 million and counting for charity. He now believes that anything is possible and we can each achieve anything we set our minds to. If you’re feeling lost or lacking in motivation, you need to hear what this man has to say.
During this powerful conversation, James talks us through the timeline of his life so far. From his initial cancer diagnosis to the emergency surgery which gave him a survival rate of just five percent. From recovery against the odds to a horrific road traffic accident. And through a second bout of cancer and treatment, followed by depression that was even harder for James to overcome. James’ account is moving and honest, with a thread of such positivity and resilience running through it. We explore where this comes from and why he turned to his incredible cycling challenges as a means to give back to those who cared for him.
James has a remarkable ability not to get disheartened by setbacks – and he’s experienced some pretty major ones. His attitude, he tells me, is that you should always move forward. Take one small step at a time, but keep an eye over your shoulder to remember where you’ve come from. It’s this fluidity that I think gives James such strength. Words that could seem trivial or clichéd from someone else sound anything but when he shares them. He really does embody the term inspirational. When we recorded this conversation, James was about to embark on the Race Across America or RAAM – the world’s toughest bike race covering 3,100 miles in nine days. And his plan was to win. Unfortunately, an untimely bout of Covid sadly derailed his hopes in this year’s race– but I feel confident he’ll somehow use this as a jumping off point to achieve even more. This is a remarkable life story that I hope will leave you feeling inspired to take positive action in your own life.
