Mallorca: Possibly the best cycling destination on the planet!

Mallorca: Possibly the best cycling destination on the planet!

Imagine the sea glistening like diamonds dancing in the sunlight, the road carving through the mountains ahead, the sweet summer smell of forest pines, and of course, your ultimate girl (or boy/girl) gang cycling beside you. Welcome to Mallorca – possibly the best cycling destination on the planet.

Mallorca is a magical island waiting to be explored, and although it’s fantastic for hiking, climbing, yoga, watersports, and the food, the reason it draws me back again and again is because of it’s cycling. If you are inspired to venture off the beaten path on your next holiday, pack your bike and head out on one of these famous routes. You’ll love it!

What Cycling London to Paris Did For Me

What Cycling London to Paris Did For Me

If I had to choose one mission to dedicate the rest of my life to, it would be this. To inspire and empower ordinary people, like you and me, to achieve extraordinary things, develop a robust self-belief, and overcome the fears, doubts and obstacles that hold us back.  

Every year I run my annual London to Paris Sportive where 120 people join me from all over the world to take on the epic challenge of cycling 200 miles in 24 hours between two of the world’s most iconic cities.

A week before the event this year, Caroline contacted me saying she would be unable to come because her Stepfather was dying and she had just split with her boyfriend.

10 Cycling Challenges That Could Change Your Life

I have always felt like life tries to make you fit into boxes. Social norms, expectations and boundaries placed on our lives. We can often find ourselves adhering to other people’s rules about how we should live and who we should be. 

Through adventure I realised there are no limits to who you can be or what you can achieve. In fact, it’s the opposite. Today I’m sharing with you my favourite cycling challenges that could raise your life to the next level, should you choose to accept the mission.

My Annual London to Paris Sportive | L2P24

It’s 3pm on Saturday 29th April and a group of 120 cyclists are preparing to embark on the epic challenge of cycling 200 miles from London to Paris in 24 hours.

These are ordinary people with the desire to achieve something extraordinary.

Completing this challenge is an extraordinary achievement requiring physical, mental and emotional strength. I believe there is nothing more powerful and valuable than proving to yourself how strong and incredible you really are. That’s why I organise this event each year.

Sunrise Cycle

Sunrise Cycle

It’s 6am and my alarm clock is piercing the silence in my room. I pull back my curtains and have a look at the sky. It’s a clear night and that makes my heart jump a little. It’s exactly what I was hoping for. I pull on the kit* I laid out last night, plait my hair and go downstairs to find my bike. My tyres are pumped, water bottle filled, everything is ready for my sunrise cycle. I planned everything to make leaving the house this morning as easy as possible. In this blog I share my top three tips to help you plan your sunrise cycle.

Girls Who Ride - International Women's Day

Girls Who Ride - International Women's Day

Today is International Women’s Day.  To celebrate, this blog is dedicated to the women I ride with and what they bring to my life. Since moving back to London, there’s been a real shift in my friendship group; more women. Most of my relationships are based around sport and cycling sits right at the heart of my passion for the sports I do.
