    20 Feb 2019 / Rebecca Clarke
    If there’s no good reason not to, why the hell not? Right? When the opportunity to join an all-women Red Bull Timelaps team came up, I didn’t need much convincing. Eight weeks to go.

    I discovered cycling as an attempt to combine some of my favourite things - being outdoors, being active, and being with my boyfriend. He’d always been a mountain biker, but started road cycling for fitness (and networking - it turns out cycling really is the new golf). I’d owned a bike as a child, but it had never been a massive part...
