The Only Way Out Is Through.

Coming back from an injury is always a personal journey. The pain, the progress, the setbacks, and the eventual recovery. People can watch as you work hard from fall to return; they can empathise and sympathise with how your life has been changed by the outcome, but they can’t feel it with you. During my [...]

A Perfectly Imperfect Beginning. What A Beautiful Place To Start.

When I first got back on my bike last year, and subsequently announced my return to road racing, the question I got asked most often was ‘why’? To be honest I didn’t have much of an answer to this, and I’ve been relatively quiet ever since as to what I was trying to achieve. This [...]

So, what happened?

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 [...]

On The Other Side Of Fear:

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 [...]

Back In The Bunch:

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 [...]

We Rise By Lifting Others (ft. photos of awesome women paving the way):

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 [...]

Racing The Clock:

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. [...]

Crossing Over

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 [...]

Mud, Sweat and Gears:

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 [...]
