A time for reflection

It has been a while since I posted anything on this blog and I think it is fair to say that the past 12 months or so have been challenging for everyone on all corners of the globe. A global pandemic, the likes of which the majority of us have never experienced before. In the […]

Breeze Champion Jacket

A little push in the right direction

So once again I have signed up to being a Breeze Champion for another twelve months which means giving up some of my time to leading group cycle rides for ladies. This kind of volunteering might not suit everybody but personally it works really well for me.  Renewing my commitment to British Cycling in their […]

Local Sports Award

Recognition is much appreciated…

So last week, my cycling group won an award at our local annual sports awards.  This was in recognition of the enormous amount of effort we have put in this year to encourage more women to get out on their bikes no matter what their level of fitness or their cycling ability.  We have strived […]

A little goes a long way…

Having completed a few bike fits this year, it has been interesting talking with other cyclists both male and female, finding out what issues they face whilst out on their bikes.

Time to step up the pace…

We’ve signed up to ride the Tour of Cambridgeshire which means I now have my first goal of 2018 to train for. Riding in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support I feel the pressure is on to clock up the miles and sort out my average speed. Really looking forward to riding a closed road event.

Come rain or shine!

After the seamlessly never ending winter that we’ve had this year I’m pretty sure that I’m not the only one looking forward to some brighter, warmer, dryer weather.  Having said that I have strangely been enjoying my recent short commutes to work in the rain!  One quick piece of advice I’d give particularly at this time […]
