    YEARS RIDING
    Since I can remember, my first bike was red and my second was baby blue in colour.

    PRIMARY RIDE STYLE
    MTB & Road are my main ride styles. I have ridden a track bike at a velodrome and have my eye on trying out cyclocross at some point.

    FAVOURITE RIDE PLACE/ROUTE
    Cannock Chase and country lanes along with riding the first section of the Tour de France when it was held in Yorkshire back in 2014. I wish to ride some locations in Europe over the next 12 months.

    FAVOURITE POST-RIDE FOOD/DRINK
    Wimpy!

    BIKE NAMES
    My Ruby road bike is ‘White Goose’. The MTB is ‘Rhyme’

    CLIMB VS. DESCEND?
    I enjoy both.

    DREAM RIDE
    Canada in the province of Alberta and British Columbia around the Rockies. Such a beautiful country and I would like to return for a visit on two wheels.

    FULL LYCRA, Y/N?
    Ooh, tough one…. Depends on my cycling activity. Prefer baggier items for MTB and Lycra for road.

    DREAM RACE/EVENT
    I do not have anything specific in mind but I would love to dabble in some MTB racing and take on an overseas challenge.

    I LOVE RIDING WITH
    My boyfriend and leading ladies rides. It is great to meet more female cyclists.

    QUOTE/MOTTO
    As a Cycle Coach I think this is so true: “It never gets easier, you just get faster” – Greg LeMond.

    As a cyclist I really like this quote: “I don’t ride a bike to add days to my life. I ride a bike to add life to my days” – Unknown

    WHY DO YOU RIDE?
    For the freedom and to be in the great outdoors. Nothing beats the mental well-being of a bike ride. New challenges and adventure adds to the excitement of being on two wheels

    SKILL YOU WISH YOU COULD MASTER BUT HAVEN’T (YET)
    Wheelie’s and jumps on a MTB. Some Cyclocross skills such a remounting.
