I AM A Rookie Rider

“I’ve been using road cycling as a good way to get fit and it’s a mental and physical challenge. I only got my first road bike nine months ago so I knew it was going to be tough. You’ve got to be passionate about it. I loved every minute of it even though its tough.”

Lizzy Foreman, 2013

I AM An Enthusiast

“This is probably as close as any of us office riders and amateur riders will get to feeling like professional riders. What is really special is that you essentially live and breathe cycling from the second your wake up…in some of the most stunning landscape anywhere in the world.”

I AM A Serious Racer

“It’s good to show that women can go out there and do it as well as the men. And the other women are fabulous, I take my hat off to them. This is not about being a super athlete, it’s about heart and determination. To come to Europe and tick all the bucket list climbs is a once in a lifetime opportunity. It’s just awesome…”

Stacie Hall, 2013
