Shop Sundried's Triathlon Collection

Have you always been into sport?

Yes from around 8-17 years old I was a long distance runner, representing Wiltshire in Cross Country. My favourite lessons at school were always P.E. And up until around 18 months ago I was playing Basketball. I've been cycling since November 2020

How did you first get into cycling?

I got into cycling initially during lockdown to keep fit and help my mental health. I hadn't been on a bike for over 20 years but that first ride (5 miles) sparked a passion inside me and I haven't stopped since. I adore it.

If you are interested in getting into cycling, Sundried's kit is suitable for beginners as well as seasoned athletes. We have both men's and women's options available. 

What has been your favourite race to date and why?

I haven't participated in any races etc as it is still lockdown but I have signed up for Manchester to Blackpool for charity in July 2021.

What is your proudest achievement?

My proudest achievement so far is completely turning my fitness around, I had gained over a stone in weight during the first lockdown as I had to close my business and admittedly did not do any exercise at all so in turn made me feel unmotivated and lazy. I promised myself I would make this lockdown a completely different one and it has been the most fulfilling and enjoyable time of my life! 

Have you ever had any racing disasters?

I have had one accident a few weeks ago, apparently thin tyres and tram tracks don't mix well!!

How do you overcome setbacks?

When I had my accident I thought I had broke my hand so after a hospital visit thankfully it was just a bad sprain (wrist and thumb) which meant I had to take a break from going out as I couldn't grip brakes. But alas the power of a turbo trainer!! I bought one and soon got Zwifting until I was mended :)

What advice do you wish you'd been given when you first started out?

Don't ride near tram tracks!!

What are your goals?

I don't think I have an end goal but I am very much looking forward to the charity rides I want to get involved in. I am also wanting to go on a cycling holiday with my wife, I would love to cycle another country that would be amazing! Apart from that I am just loving life on my bike wholeheartedly.

Who inspires you? 

My Instagram cycling community absolutely inspire me! What an amazing bunch of lovely, friendly and funny people. I haven't met any of them yet but I have been welcomed into this group with open arms.️
