When Elaine Scott stood mesmerised at the roadside watching a time trial last year, she was inspired to make a decision that would change her life.  

She decided to buy a bike.  

Having previously suffered from anorexia, anxiety and depression, Elaine soon discovered the benefits of cycling to her mental as well as physical health.  

Since she started riding, she has been determined to challenge herself to push further and do more on every ride.  

That is, until an accident on black ice at the end of the year. A fractured pelvis has temporarily put her out of action, but Elaine is determined to recover and come back stronger. 

She’s got her sights set on the 104-mile Ken Laidlaw Sportive in August – a massive upgrade on the 52-mile distance she completed in 2018.   

We think she can do it and we’ll be keeping you updated on her progress. 

What's in Elaine's kit bag?

dhb R2.0 Road Helmet

This was a replacement for my old helmet which I broke in the accident. I'm looking forward to wearing it when I get back on the bike. I love the sleek design and it feels very comfortable.

 dhb Aeron Women's FLT Roubaix Bib Tight

Good quality and well fitting. The women's specific pad feels excellent and makes long days in the saddle very comfortable. Definitely an upgrade from my usual bib tights. 

dhb Aeron Women's Short Sleeve Jersey

A very stylish jersey. Well designed and cut for a flattering fit.


dhb Women's Merino Short Sleeve Base Layer (M_200)

Great fit and quality. It keeps me warm without feeling sweaty.  


dhb Aeron Women's Merino Sock

Fab design, comfortable and a good length. Brilliant quality and they look great with my cycling shoes
