This blog documents my cycling adventures, they mostly happen in the UK where I live but I have been known to put my bike in a box and travel. In 2009 I purchased my first road bike and it changed my weekends forever. When I joined my first cycling club in 2012 I was the only female cyclist in the club but I have since built an active community of women cyclists in my local area. I hope you enjoy my tales, please join in by commenting and sharing your own experiences too. Thanks for checking in, enjoy the ride. Nicole


  1. Nicole, best of luck for Sunday, hope you have a great day and smash your targets. Love the blog, a credit not just to the female cycling world buy cycling in general. Martin (met you on Wakefield Rapha training ride).

  2. Martin thank you for your kind words and for reading my blog. It was lovely to meet you and ride with you in Wakefield, what a great day that was! Ride 100 became Ride 86, they cut the hills. It was a day of biblical weather but I battled on through and made it home in good time. I’ll write a review of the day and get it up here asap!

    1. Hi Nicole, it was a good day out albeit a little damp. I only found out about shortcut 20 miles in which meant a rapid re-working of target times. Also got to ride 5 miles with Marianna Vos. She is some cyclist, averaging 28mph and she’s just casually chatting to a team mate and admiring the scenery! Glad you had a good day out- keep it up!

  3. Totally inspiring! I am just over a year into my love affair with cycling and dreaming of riding L2m next year. Your adventures are both inspiring and insightful thank you for sharing. Most helpful!

    1. Hi Sue, I’m so pleased you’re in love with cycling too. Manchester to London is an amazing journey, wonderful people, helpful and encouraging staff, beautiful route, go for it and if anyone can help you get through it the RCC will. Join their rides, meet other likeminded women, get in a group, motivate and inspire each other, you will reap the rewards and make friends for life. Please stay in touch, I would love to hear how you’re doing, keep turning the pedals. Chapeau 😊
