Video: Racing the London Nocturne
Hello readers! Sorry for not having posted my latest video here for you guys, I’ve been dashing around as usual racing here, there and everywhere. Now that I’m back from a few days in Berlin (racing Fixed 42) I’m catching up on a few bits and bobs whilst I enjoy an absolutely fabulous day of sunshine here in Devon.
I was up early this morning to get my training in the bag before the sun was at its strongest, heading off on one of my favourite loops – along the Teign valley, up Six Mile Hill to Doccombe then back down to Bovey Tracey from Moretonhampstead and let me tell you, even when I was puffing, panting and gasping mid interval I had a big smile on my face.

Having lived in many countries around the world, my love of England has only grown and the novelty of living in one of the prettiest parts of the UK and possibly one of the best places for cycling still hasn’t worn off after five years of being here. When the sun is shining, there’s genuinely no place I’d rather be. My only wish is that it would shine more frequently. Well, that and the fact we weren’t leaving the EU. And that Teresa May wasn’t PM. But anyway…
The rest of my day has been spent writing various assignments in the garden surrounded by some seriously hot and drowsy cats, who I’m sure would be better off indoors where its cool – I guess they missed me and just want to hang out – so life is feeling pretty sweet right now!
But back to the video.
Last week I posted a video from my time in London, when I raced the first ever women’s fixed crit at the London Nocturne.
I also swung by the Women’s Tour to cheer on my favourite cyclists, kept up with my regular training schedule and made time for the Italian gelato ever at Oddono’s in South Kensington.
