Welcome to my whitterings, all about my adventures on two wheels.

I am Lorraine, 44 years old and live in Ceredigion, Mid Wales – not far from the sea, not far from the mountains.  I discovered my love of cycling by joining a Breeze ride back in February 2016, bought a road bike (Bikey, my trusty Boardman) and have never looked back.  I have gained new friends, more confidence, am fitter than I have ever been and have lost over 3 stone.  I have done daft things like chaingang (love it), competed in a crit race dressed in a tutu and had a go at “bombing” round a Velodrome (ie. very fearfully and slowly!).  This year I am lucky enough to have been chosen to be part of the Pearl Izumi Champion Team and the Breeze Velothon Wales team too – this will be my biggest challenge to date!

I believe it’s all about having a go, and my aim is to get more women of my age out on their bikes, we can’t let the blokes have all the fun – so come on, join me! 🙂
