I purchased my first road bike in 2009 and my weekends changed forever. My physical health improved and I continue to learn how cycling improves my mental health. My stories included here are my own, very personal experiences. I’m not a coach, nutritionist or any kind of expert. I’ve had a go at riding my bike a few times and attempted things I didn’t know I could achieve.
I live in the UK but I’ve also put my bike in a box and travelled to some of Europe’s other cycling hotspots too. I regained my fitness after pregnancy thanks to my bike and I now have an enthusiastic 7yr cycling buddy and she encouraged me to start cyclocross racing. When I joined my first cycling club in 2012 I was the only female cyclist in the club so I went on a little mission to find other women cycling in my community to join the ride. I’d love you to join in too, you could share your own experiences by commenting on one of my stories.
Thank you for checking in. Nicole
