Background:
I am very new to cycling – I bought my first road bike in November 2015 in our winter. My husband used a turbo trainer and I decided to try it to get used to the bike during the winter months before starting out on the road in spring. I started on different software to Zwift but soon found it a bit boring. Then I came across Zwift and signed up for a trial. I loved it immediately

.

I liked the variety – I could race, I could train or just go for a ride.
At the end of April 2016 I joined the Zwift Academy. From June – August I joined 1,000 ladies for the qualifying stage, which consisted of 27 workouts and 9 group rides over 3 months. Ohhh that was hot in our little pain cave…it was a warm summer!
I was one of the 110 ladies to finish the ZA and qualify.

This year, 2016, I have done 3 triathlons, 1 duathlon and one 100 mile road sportive (The Nelson’s Tour de Test Valley). I also cycled up Mount Ventoux, Col de l’Iseran and Col de la Madeleine in France.
