I purchased my first road bike in 2009, and this changed my weekends forever. I attempted things I didn’t know I could achieve; my physical health improved and coping with the ups and downs of everyday life became more manageable with cycling and the community surrounding it in my life.
I’m a surviving and thriving single parent, and I regained my fitness after pregnancy thanks to my bike. I now have an enthusiastic 8yr old cycling buddy who encouraged me to start cyclocross racing.
My stories included here are my own, very personal experiences, I live and cycle in the UK, but I’ve also put my bike in a box, and I’ve travelled to some of Europe’s other cycling hotspots.
I’m not an expert, a coach or a nutritionist, I’ve just had a go at riding my bike a few times and found out what works through trial and error.
When I joined my first cycling club in 2012, I was the only female cyclist in the club, so I went on a mission to search out and empower other women cycling in my local community. I’d love you to join in too, by contributing your own experiences and connecting with my stories.
Thank you for checking in, and I look forward to hearing from you.
