Since starting it’s made a difference to my life in so many ways. Day to day is quite busy, I work full time, have two young children and volunteer as a leader with the Scout Association. Cycling is something for me, it’s my time away from everything to just enjoy the peace and space. I’ve made so many new friends, we all really enjoy riding together and the support you get from team mates can make such a difference. Also I massively underestimated how awesome getting fit can make you feel, I sleep better, feel better, have more energy and have lost some weight. WIN!
If anyone was considering taking up road cycling I have two words: DO IT! The rewards and sense of achievement I get from cycling is much more than I anticipated. Nothing beats getting to the top of the challenging hill and knowing that it was your legs that got you there. It makes me feel like I can achieve anything!
