My cycling journey started just over 3 years ago, my now ex husband was a very keen mountain biker and had been trying to get me into it for years but I’d never really enjoyed it, I occasionally cycled to work and did a few short rides at weekends but nothing serious.

Cycling had always been something other people did. The fit, sporty ones. Unlike me who maybe went out on her hybrid once a month on a sunny dry day. I remember panting and puffing up the hills whilst all the road bikes whizzed past me so effortlessly. ‘Oh how I wish I was them’ I used to say to myself.

A cycling challenge in memory of a dear friend for Cancer Research UK because Cancer effects so many people .

We are going to do a charity ride to raise funds for Cancer Research, in memory of Susan Helliwell , a true ‘Sunday Girl’ who sadly lost her battle with cancer aged 55 years young, in March 2018.
