Unbelievable!

Arrived in Switzerland yesterday very tired and drained from the World Cup Road Race, had dinner and hit the sack.  This morning I had classification and then headed out on a ride by myself and found myself staring at mountains in the distance. I still have a hard time believing that I am really here! [...]

Road Race – Elzach World Cup

After a rest day on Saturday I had the road race today.  I really wasn't sure if I was looking forward to it or not as it was an extremely technical course with about 17 corners on it.  With 6 laps to do that meant that I was going to be doing 102 corners, not [...]

Riding Solo

I have to admit that most of my riding is done with others.  This is a huge change from when I first started riding my trike.  I was slow, heavy and rode by myself, but then as I got lighter, fitter and started to become faster I was able to join group rides.  I absolutely [...]

This blog is a couple of weeks late in coming but I really wanted to thank Cadel Evans for all the exciting times we as admirers and fans shared with him in his cycling journey. Although is was a 20 year career I don't believe that it is yet over.  There is so much more to just [...]

2014 Comes to an End

By | December 31st, 2014|BLOG, Celebration, Family, Friends|

As I sit here with a glass of wine to celebrate the last day of 2014, I'm reflecting on the year that was.  For me it was a fantastic year with many highs throughout the year.  For others it was a year of sadness, heartache and the unknown. Our world has been a place of [...]

What an incredible week I have had and it hasn't even finished!  The week I am talking about started last Friday when I headed up to Bright for the St. Kilda Cycling Club's Women's weekend.  I was looking forward to some amazing riding and hoping to tackle part of my 'Bucket List' by climbing Mt.

Victorian Australian of the Year Awards

A few weeks ago I received a phone call from a woman called Suzanne and she told me that I was a finalist for the Victorian Australian of the Year.  She told me that I was one of 4 finalists out of thousands of nominations.  I was a bit stunned and she must have realized [...]
