VCG is jumping back on the cycling soap box next month... I'm very excited to say I'll be speaking at the launch of the Women's Cycle Forum in Scotland! The WCF is a new membership organisation to celebrate and promote women's cycling and to encourage women to take a leading role in cycling in all its forms.
I'll be giving a talk at the event, which forms part of the Edinburgh Festival of Cycling, on 11th June. If you're in Edinburgh for the festival, come along and listen to me talking about celebrating the diversity of women in cycling. The launch is FREE to attend and is being held at the Out of the Blue & Drill Hall Arts Cafe.
Tickets and more details on the event can be found here - so click on the link to register & find out more.
Hopefully I'll see you on the 11th June!

VCG is back in the swing of all things cycling for 2016: last weekend saw the return of Bespoked Bristol, and I was there not only as an excited visitor, but also to judge “The Lady Velo Choice” for Women’s Bicycles… and the “Outstanding Design Award” - which was pretty ace to say the least!

Every now and then the 'not so hot' bits of life have a funny knack of getting in the way of the things I love. Like cycling just for the joy of being on a bike. Not doing it because you have to be the best at it and smash all the goals, or because there are deadlines to be met for a project you've got to work on is something I lost sight of quite badly. When the memory of hopping on the saddle and just cycling the hell out of a weekend with no agenda feels like a distant one, it's time to reassess and re-connect.
Also, when something like a mini-stroke comes along, it forces you to wake the hell up... and to stay woke.

A blog post I did over on Vulpine, and a piece written by the wonderful Lauren Laverne in Glamour Magazine this month has given me food for thought on this entry. A round-up of my year on the saddle isn't an unusual post for me to do, but this time I'm going to be a bit more honest about what some of these things really meant to me and why it's cool to celebrate those achievements.
