It's been a couple of weeks since the surgery on my wrist, and I'm still getting messages asking what actually happened. I realise that aside from some sporadic tweeting while in the hospital, and a fair amount of Instagram storying while I was on the good drugs, I didn't give any real details of the [...]

The big question I was repeatedly asked in the lead up to the race on Sunday was ‘how are you feeling about being back?’. Each time, I answered that I was happy but nervous. Perhaps, more accurately, I should have said that I was afraid; but that felt like a rather dramatic response to a [...]
This weekend marks my first time lining up for a road race since I stepped off the bike over a year ago. I genuinely thought I’d never say that. I was reluctantly convinced not to call it a retirement in case I wanted to go back to racing in the future, but this felt unnecessary [...]
I’ve spent the past couple of years changing my mindset on a lot of topics that I previously chose to ignore. One of these things has been the fight for equality. Call it growing up, or perhaps more accurately call it opening my eyes. It wasn’t that I didn’t know how big an issue this [...]
At the beginning of the year I announced that I would be back on the bike in 2019 and that I would be riding for Orbea Racing Team. I also said that I would bring you along for the journey and document the trials and tribulations of being back in the saddle. That starts now. [...]
Given everything that had happened it was easy for me to grow bitter at the hand I had been dealt, to see my downfall as the result of a year of ill-fated circumstance entirely outside my control. I was merely the victim of a series of unfortunate events, and all that was left now was the [...]
It’s been a weird six months; weird, but surprisingly great. I’m experiencing the world of ‘real’ work for the first time, and I’m grateful to be a part of lots of exciting projects and doing things I really enjoy. As someone who loves a plan, and subsequently loves things going to plan, throwing mine out [...]
As I head towards my first ever cyclocross race my lack of style and grace on the rough stuff is becoming more and more apparent. That’s not to say I haven’t tried. A couple of months of cramming training in between work has meant a small step in my fitness levels, but unfortunately no giant [...]
“Light at the end of the tunnel”. It’s a phrase you hear all the time, but until recently I couldn’t even see a dull glow in the distance. Now, after months of doing not a lot other than falling down, it’s time to pick myself up again, and pick my bike up while I’m at [...]
For the past few months I’ve been fighting a battle with myself. As most of you have noticed by now, I’ve not shown my face on the start line for a while, and I’ve been relatively absent from the world of social media as well. Nothing’s been a done deal, but now the time has [...]
