Ten Takeaways

“Fitting a dynamo hub to my front wheel is something I’ve changed in the past few years. The power generated runs my big front light when it’s dark and charges up either my Wahoo, lights or phone during daylight” - Jane

“My attitude…

I’ve tried to change how I speak to myself by being kinder. It’s definitely a process though” - Emma Jane

“To be a better cyclist it’s not just about riding more. Over the past few years I’ve realised the importance of rest and recovery” - Anneleen

“I always get a shower before I go for a morning ride. It wakes me up and gets me in the right frame of mind” - Maria

“I always double check that my route is loaded and obsessively check the weather. Try the app ‘Epic Ride Weather’.” - Jane

“The Rapha Cargo Bibs…

are my current favourite. They have really useful mesh pockets on the side for additional storage” - Jane and Anneleen

“Test different things to see what works for you but I love banana Soreen loaf. The shape is perfect for a cyclist’s back pocket” - Aoife

“My current favourite is to bring rice dumplings filled with peanut butter. You can find a recipe here – or buy them in the frozen section of most Asian supermarkets” - Anneleen

“After a long ride or race I drink a chocolate milk. It fills the gap until I can make a good meal” - Emma Jane

“One winter hack is to carry a spare jacket rolled up in your spare bottle cage” - Anneleen
