What’s your favourite ride?

I love riding in Cheshire on club rides with my friends at Mossley CRT, I also love training with my dad on Saddleworth hills.

What’s your top cycling tip to share?

Watch Global Cycling Network, they daily make useful cycling tip videos.

I would ride it with Laura Trott or Peter Sagan, my two favourite riders.
