    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. That’s enough time to prepare...? Having taken a long break from cycling, I had only really got back into it about seven months before. I had worked...

    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...

    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...
