So how was your Cycle Live 2019

I hope that you are all still admiring your medals? You should be very proud of all you have achieved!

It was great to see all of those completing the 50 miles or more at Langer Feed Station, where I was supporting Girlguiding Nottinghamshire as guests of Ridewise.

The sheer joy and smiles that you had on your faces made it, I am sure you will agree, a great day for all involved.

I am very impressed that the Cycle Live team managed to fix the weather too ! And I hope that your ride was smooth and enjoyable.

It was a wonderful day for us as the Girlguiding Nottingham Selfie Frame attracted a lot of attention and we managed not only to speak to some inspiring people, but also to sign up three new volunteers!

In fact I was a little bit jealous that you were all cycling and I wasn’t on my bike – so I’ve decided to put that right straight away and I’ve already signed up for Cycle Live 2020! I will be encouraging more ladies to get involved in cycling over the next 12 months, so whose going to join me?

Thank you all for making it a wonderful day – I’m really looking forward to next year!
