I’m not the fastest, but I am in love with cycling, especially mountains. This is my journey to be the best that I can be.

Not so long ago I was a size 18 and on my way to being seriously unhealthy and unhappy. Bike riding has changed that for me, I’ve lost more than 20 kilos and I love life. I want to share my adventures and hopefully inspire you to get out and ride a bike!

I ride a Trek Silque SSL, which I spent literally all my savings on, and after a few months getting used to her, it was the best thing I’ve ever done. We’ve had some great adventures together this year and I totally love riding her.

For 2016, I’ve entered the Maratona Dles Dolomites and hoping to complete the Mallorca 312, and maybe more later in the year. I also would like to go back to post a good time at the Etape du Dales, as the weather meant it was a case of survival, rather than speed in 2015. That sounds like enough to be getting one with (for now)…
