The former swimmer told Sky Sports News Radio following the official team selection that it is good to finally be able to say: "Yes I am going to London, I am going to be competing at a home Games in my fifth Paralympics. It's pretty special now."
The British hopeful is now fully focused on what he needs to do, in order to be in tip-top condition when the Games begin.
He added: "It's just now picking up the pace of training, and making sure we are in the best possible shape to do the performance of a lifetime.
"It's now about going through the process and working as hard as possible in the next six-seven weeks. Then all the hard works is done then and it's time to taper and start freshening up to make sure performances are the best we can ever do when it comes to the Games."
The fastest Paralympic cyclist in the world and world champion, said: "I am the defending champion and world record holder, so yes there is a little bit of pressure!
"The rest of the world are all chasing me and getting faster and faster. But I'm feeling good and I'm just going to control everything that I am doing.
"At the moment, everything in training is going as well, if not better, than I've done in the past, so we keep trying to move forward and trying to get faster and faster so that when the Games come, nothing can come as a surprise."
One aspect Jody, as with all other GB athletes, is really looking forward to, is the home crowd element to the London Games.
He added: "To have that opportunity for that once-in- a-lifetime Paralympics where it's on home soil- it's truly special."
