    YOU CAN: Ben Bareham
    23 Jan 2019 / Nassrin Chamanian
    For Ben Bareham, nothing beats the feeling of being on two wheels. Just a couple of years ago, the effects of overworking were taking their toll on his mental and physical health. He took up cycling to lose weight and improve his fitness. It wasn’t all plain sailing. His first 100-mile sportive was a race against the broom-wagon. Suffering...

    My Cycling Journey - Rebecca Clarke
    14 Jan 2019 / Rebecca Clarke
    Like most people, I began cycling as a child. My most vivid memory of cycling at this time was riding in a figure-of-eight repeatedly on my front drive. I also remember going on family cycles when we went on holiday, whizzing around with my parents and annoying security guards with tales of my adventures. What I don’t remember was the...

    My Cycling Journey - Nassrin Chamanian
    14 Jan 2019 / Nassrin Chamanian
    I was about 8 years old when I learned to ride a bike. I can't quite remember how it happened - one minute I was on stabilisers, the next I was flying free. Well, almost free. At the age of 8, I was only allowed to ride around the block but that was a big distance for a small person. My beloved Raleigh Denim was second-hand out of the local...

    My Cycling Journey - Stephanie Kitchen
    14 Jan 2019 / Stephanie Kitchen
    I’ve always cycled a bit as a mode of transport, for commuting, going to uni or for just getting around town. But I think I really fell in love with cycling the summer I graduated from uni. Me and my friend Brigid got road bikes and toured the coast of Portugal for 3 weeks. We had no gear (just alllll the ideas) a beaten up map, a couple of...

    My Cycling Journey - Kirsty Smith
    14 Jan 2019 / Kirsty Smith
    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...

    My Cycling Journey - Sarah Pain
    14 Jan 2019 / Sarah Pain
    My cycling journey has been rather intermittent – apart from a few brief dalliances as a teenager I was a bit late to the party, only really getting into it well into my 30s! I must have learnt to ride a bike as a young child but I actually don’t remember the learning bit. I do vaguely remember getting a shiny red bike for my birthday...
