    YEARS RIDING
    30

    PRIMARY RIDE STYLE
    Road riding, although I also enjoy mountain biking and that’s where my love for cycling began.

    FAVOURITE RIDE PLACE/ROUTE
    My favourite place to ride is The Cotswolds. I can ride there from my door and there is a good range of hills and quiet roads.

    FAVOURITE POST-RIDE FOOD/DRINK
    Avocado and poached eggs with bread (from my local bakery), accompanied by a cup of tea of course.

    BIKE NAMES
    None!

    CLIMB VS. DESCEND?
    Climb.

    DREAM RIDE
    I really love riding in Spain so it’s always my first choice when booking a holiday. It’s really friendly, there’s a lot of climbing, the roads are quiet and the drivers respect cyclists.

    FULL LYCRA, Y/N?
    Yes for road biking, no for mountain biking (unless you live in a hot European country and have a tan).

    DREAM RACE/EVENT
    National Hill Climb Championship. Maybe next year.

    I LOVE RIDING WITH
    If I am out on a social ride, I love riding with other women because it’s a bit more relaxed and fun. I’m inspired by other women and enjoy hearing about their riding experiences. If I am on a training ride, I prefer to ride on my own or with my partner Paul.

    QUOTE/MOTTO
    "Miles are my meditation"

    WHY DO YOU RIDE?
    To keep fit and healthy, to challenge myself and to see beautiful places.d.

    SKILL YOU WISH YOU COULD MASTER BUT HAVEN’T (YET)
    I would love to be able to ride the rollers like Ruby Isaac.
