Morning all, I’ve big news to share today!

I’ve just launched my mentoring competition with ŠKODA over on my YouTube and Instagram channels. I’m really proud to be a part of ŠKODA’s Driver’s Seat Initiative, a project designed to empower people to pursue their passions that was launched last month in conjunction with the Prince’s Trust and Paloma Faith.

I get so much out of cycling and I’m passionate about helping more people do the same.

I’m fortunate to have the support of a huge group of friends that cycle, a husband who races and the backing of a great local club, Mid Devon Cycling Club but I didn’t grow up cycling and I know how navigating a new, mysterious world can feel. Sometimes it be confusing or intimidating, particularly if you want to take on new challenges.

Whether you feel like that or not, making progress can sometimes be frustratingly slow if you don’t have the knowledge or tools you need to progress as quickly as you’d like and don’t have anyone around to ask for help.

The mentoring programme is your chance to buddy up with me for some help achieving your cycling goals. I’m offering you a mentoring package fully tailored to your needs, so basically, you get my support and advice on tap.


You can win:

  • A one on one coaching session with me, a qualified British Cycling coach here in Devon.
  • A tailored six-week training plan
  • Regular feedback sessions to assess your progress and answer any questions


So what is your goal this summer? What can I help you with? Maybe you want to try racing for the first time? Perhaps you’re targeting a sportive or looking to nail a new personal best? Maybe you want to get back into cycling after some time off, rebuild your confidence or develop bike handling skills?

I want to know how you Make Your Own Kind Of Music already, how you’re doing things you’re way and I want to know what you’d like me to help you with. Leave your comments on my YouTube video (or Instagram) and tell me about your passion for cycling. But be quick – the competition closes on Thursday 12th April at 5pm.

Good luck! I can’t wait to hear your stories!
