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 […]

Cyclepath Commute

Smug cycling…

There’s something quite satisfying about bypassing stationary traffic on your way to work.  Puts a smile on my face anyway!

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.

Time for a restart

New year, new bike, new resolutions but then January throws rain, snow and a nasty flu bug in your face!  I think my new year needs to start later in the calendar preferably around Springtime, but hey I’ll try restarting this year again at Chinese New Year and see how we go from there

Put a smile on your face

Having pimped my ride by adding a simple but cheap accessory to my basket, I now have something that brightens up my commute to work on a gloomy day!  

Back in the saddle

It’s been a little while since my last post but following a sneaky break from cycling to pursue my other passion on the piste as well as coming down with a short illness I am now back in the saddle and liking the spring-like weather. I’m now officially an Assistant Ride Leader (just need to […]

All signed up

I am excited to say I have just registered to take part in a British Cycling Ride Leader Course.  Once I’ve taken the course I’ll be expected to lead at least 5 rides this year.  I’ll advertise the dates and locations on my events page as when they are organised.  My husband chuckled and said […]

The Tortoise v’s The Hare!

Shortly before Christmas I found myself having to take the car to work instead of my usual mode of transport – the bike!  Just one journey reminded me why I choose to travel by bike.  A journey that normally takes me just 10 minutes on a bike took me 3o minutes by car!!  How ridiculous […]
