2016 Season Goals

To fit in racing around my second business venture (I sell fudge in a fudge shop)! Time trials are my thing really, but I have a go at road racing too, I’d like to be more competitive in national races overall. I’m always hanging around at the back so end up super tired or miss the splits!

Q&A with Gina

First Bike: A pink sparkly one.

Favourite Climb: Might be Nant Y Garth in North Wales, shallow enough to give it beans all the way up!

Interests outside of Cycling: I like growing things in my garden…vegetables and flowers!

Favourite food: Raspberries. Or greek yoghurt. Or medjool dates.

What career did you train for away from cycling: I did Natural Sciences at Durham university so I wouldn’t say my training was anything to do with my fudge career!

Favourite cycling memory: Riding with friends in Mallorca is among the best of my cycling memories but also those hideous moments when you hate being on your bike in freezing cold rain, they are the rides you remember and remember positively!

@StickyWalnut I think this applies to all self employed people. Or maybe just those who own a customer facing business that employs staff?!
