As with most people reading this, in my teens I rode a bike as a means of transportation, but that was about it. It wasn't until in midlife when everyday life pressures had taken their toll, that I found that I needed to do something to regain fitness and feelings of well-being.
I recalled days cycling with the sun on your face, the wind at your back, able to notice the beauty of the land and the sight of wildlife, it set my soul alight, I would return from rides with a grin from ear to ear. With my passion reignited I decided to "up my game" and use cycling as a method to lose weight, control blood pressure and to regain work-life balance.
I started slowly, first just a few miles, but by building confidence, this enabled me to not only enjoy new friendships with cycling buddies, but also complete personal challenges, support various charitable causes and undertake multi day rides such as Calais to Montpellier, London to Paris, Mallorca, Lands End to John O'Groats, plus many other cycling adventures. In terms of competition, that's with myself... and with those friends on weekend rides !
My training plans have been developed to emulate my own journey, with achievable but progressive steps to keep you motivated, I want you to feel the same energy and passion.
In 2017 I gained my British Cycling coaching certification, with the goal to help people achieve their health and fitness goals using my wealth of experience and your will and determination to succeed.
