I’ve been riding bikes for as long as I can remember and been a ‘roadie’ since 2014, riding with a couple of friends. I joined GYCC in 2016 as I wanted to take the next steps in my riding. Since joining, I’ve developed my cycling knowledge, mechanical skills and fitness beyond my expectations – whilst also having a thoroughly good time and making plenty of great friends! I started out riding the Tuesday evening and Sunday club rides, before leading the Tuesday rides myself. I was voted onto the committee in 2017 as the club’s social media secretary, updating the Facebook page and Instagram account. I progressed onto the faster group in 2018 and now organise many of the rides and act as a ride leader on the faster rides, although I can also be spotted leading a club run group from time to time!
