After picking up cycling at a relatively young age, bolstered by my passion to avoid jogging at all costs, I lost the buzz for it in my early teens as I progressed in other sports. However, later in life and post Uni my bike was there waiting and my passion for the sport returned. I can’t claim to be the most slender cyclist of my generation but hopefully what I loose up the hills I gain on the way back down, and it’s the enjoyment of being out on the road and in the saddle that drives me whether out on my own or with a group – and the opportunity for a deserved pub stop with your mates on the way around.

I’ve cycled in my fair share of sportives and the Velo looks like a great opportunity for Birmingham to mirror the fantastic RideLondon – I can’t wait to get going. A genuine enjoyment for the sport and the opportunity to ride with the PFK team whilst raising money for a fantastic cause means I am very much looking forward to the day!….. (and the pint afterwards)
