What kind of riding do you do?

Road and track, but my heart is in MTB

What do you enjoy most about cycling?

The freedom it offers, along with the excitement and fitness I gain from it.

What’s your favourite ride?

I was lucky enough to go with some mates to Moab, Utah and although all the rides were amazing, two stand out - the Portal route and the Whole Enchilada. Everything I love about riding was included in these rides.

What’s your top cycling tip to share?

Have some adventures on your bike and keep challenging yourself!

If you had a tandem, who would you like to ride it with?

Having previously raced a MTB event on the back of a tandem, which was very 'exciting', it would just have to be someone I fully trusted!
