    Hi All,

    On Sunday I took part in my first cycling event, it was 47 miles round the New Forest. It was sooo hard however I dug deep and made it to the end! I crashed at 43 miles which only made me more determined to finish! It wasn't until after I'd finished I realised I'd actually hurt myself!! It took me 4 hours 32 minutes, which I know isn't great but hay I'm still a beginner!! I did it for The Cystic Fibrosis Trust and have raised over £500. I can't wait to get out again and am already looking for the next event!! I just wanted to share my news really! :D

    Way to go and good job with the fundraising.

    But you don't need to wait for a special event to go riding again - just go. If there's a recreational cycle club near you, join up and see how it is.
