This year’s a big one for me and the wheels.
I’ve always loved cycling; my trusty Giant roadie gets me to work every day on a wave of endorphins, and during spring and summer weekends you’ll probably find me throwing myself down the Welsh mountains or climbing the rolling hills of the South Downs on the mountain bike.
Despite my love for the sport, I’ve never actually entered any official events. I go on lots of brilliant group rides, but have yet to pop my sportive cherry, until now.
This year me and hubs are doing the London Revolution, (185 miles around London over two days in May – literally cannot wait!), and much to my disbelief I also got into Ride London on the ballot, which is all kinds of epic and awesome.
