It’s officially too cold for my Veloforte and espresso stop mid-ride ☕️⛄️ Despite wearing merino base layers that promise to wick away sweat (is it just me that interprets that to mean “you will be dry”?), I ended up frozen wet cold yesterday after completing some quick and sweaty Regent’s Park laps 😣 The 15kms home was a horrible prospect. I nearly took the train 😂 If you have any tips on managing the sweat/cold/stopping issue please send them my way! • • • #blondeonabike #bikeadventures #cycling #cyclist #cyclingadventures #cyclingpics #cyclingphotos #lovecycling #outsideisfree #queenofthemountain #stravacycling #cyclingfitness #fitgirl #personaltrainer #strengthcoach #sportsnutrition #enduranceathlete #nomeatathlete #poweredbyplants #roadbike #roadcycling #womenwhoride #inspiringwomentoride #cyclingmotivation #veloforte #vegtarian #glutenfree #fuelbetter at Regent's Park

I’ll lead the way!🍾 No question where I’d rather be on a rainy grey London day 🌧 The Champagne region was such a beautiful part of France to explore, and I’d never even considered it before a spontaneous decision to stop during my summer in Europe. Meandering roads, undulating hills, the sound of the birds in the overhanging trees, the scorching summer sun... obviously the post-ride reward 🥂 One of my favourite things about cycling is that you’re always discovering all kinds of roads leading to new places and experiences that you never even imagined 💙🚴🏼‍♀️ [Cycle touring in Reims, Aug ‘17] • • • #blondeonabike #bikeadventures #cycling #cyclist #cyclingadventures #cyclingpics #cyclingphotos #lovecycling #outsideisfree #queenofthemountain #stravacycling #cyclingfitness #fitgirl #personaltrainer #strengthcoach #sportsnutrition #enduranceathlete #nomeatathlete #poweredbyplants #roadbike #roadcycling #womenwhoride #inspiringwomentoride #cyclingmotivation #specializedbikes #champagne #reims at Trigny, Champagne-Ardenne, France

HOW LONG is recovery week again?! WHEN do I get to train hard again? 🚴🏼‍♀️💨 Yes, recovery weeks serve an important purpose in the physical adaptation process, and they are important mentally too, but I still struggle to embrace them! (Especially with my next goal event being only 2 months away 😱) To help manage myself in these weeks, I plan extra/longer sessions of yoga and foam rolling, I incorporate plenty of daily walking, and have a handful of short duration high-intensity bike sessions. I’ll try to squeeze in a sports massage for behaving myself 😉 By Sunday I’ll be longing to get back to training that feels like “work”... although I’m already looking wistfully at any bike or cyclist that crosses my path 😝 • • • #blondeonabike #bikeadventures #cycling #cyclist #cyclingadventures #cyclingpics #cyclingphotos #lovecycling #outsideisfree #queenofthemountain #queenofthemtns #keepclimbing #stravacycling #cyclingfitness #fitgirl #personaltrainer #strengthcoach #sportsnutrition #enduranceathlete #nomeatathlete #poweredbyplants #roadbike #roadcycling #womenwhoride #inspiringwomentoride #cyclingmotivation #rapha #louisgarneau at Keston Common

MUCKY ride today!!! 🚴🏼‍♀️ If you’re going to ride through the UK winter, you’re going to spend a lot of time washing your bike 🙄 Thankfully I’ve discovered the @sainsburys garage at the bottom of my street has “Free air and water”. Ace! 🎉 It’s now a routine stop at the end of every ride to get the visible muck off, then it’s into the tub we go for the rest 🛀 Although, tomorrow we ride again, so I’ll give Ruby’s drive train some temporary 🖤 today and sort it all out properly tomorrow 👍 • • • #blondeonabike #bikeadventures #cycling #cyclist #cyclingadventures #cyclingpics #cyclingphotos #lovecycling #outsideisfree #queenofthemountain #stravacycling #cyclingfitness #fitgirl #strengthcoach #sportsnutrition #enduranceathlete #nomeatathlete #poweredbyplants #roadbike #roadcycling #womenwhoride #inspiringwomentoride #dirtybike #iamspecialized #swissside #swisssidehadron #shimano #ottolock at Royal Borough of Greenwich

Ever knew something was meant for you, it just wasn’t the right time? This #ThrowBack is to a goodbye that I still believe was not The End 🖤 • Repost from @jilly_london - Ma maison des myrtilles💙 I have absolute faith that what's meant for me will not pass me by.

Taking a complete rest day on the 1st Jan was not a motivating start to 2018 🤦🏼‍♀️ I’ve been resisting the urge to check Strava all day! A day off was wellllll overdue though. I’ve just come off a big training week and have an even bigger build week now, so I had to get over my FOMO and listen to pragmatism ✅ I try to have 1 day off training every week. On complete rest days, I still aim to be active, ie my goal is to walk 10,000 steps. And I do a proper rolling session with all 3 torture implements to get into the spots that don’t get as much love during the general daily roll (which happens in 5 mins while George Clooney is making my Nespresso ☕️ at 5am). My rest days and recovery days have different purposes - recovery training serves either to clear byproducts accumulated from previous training or to prepare my body for it’s next session, versus a complete rest day for my body and mind🧘‍♀️ Now... back to my alternate pain cave 😉🚴🏼‍♀️💙 • • • #blondeonabike #bikeadventures #cycling #cyclist #cyclingadventures #cyclingpics #cyclingphotos #lovecycling #outsideisfree #queenofthemountain #stravacycling #cyclingfitness #fitgirl #personaltrainer #strengthcoach #sportsnutrition #enduranceathlete #nomeatathlete #poweredbyplants #roadbike #roadcycling #womenwhoride #inspiringwomentoride #cyclingmotivation #foamroller #paincave #myofascialrelease #selfmassage #sportsmassage #66fit at London, United Kingdom

Fall in love with the process 🖤 Every exhausting interval, every km in the cold rain, every weight lifted, every muscle stretched, every ‘sacrifice’ - those are the moments that count 🏆🚴🏼‍♀️ • • • #blondeonabike #bikeadventures #cycling #cyclist #cyclingadventures #cyclingpics #cyclingphotos #lovecycling #outsideisfree #queenofthemountain #stravacycling #cyclingfitness #fitgirl #personaltrainer #strengthcoach #sportsnutrition #trainingaddict #enduranceathlete #roadbike #roadcycling #womenwhoride #inspiringwomentoride #training #lovetheprocess #cyclingmotivation at Leith Hill

TBT 1 year ago, a “crazy idea” and an extremely special part of the world that I can’t let go. What’s meant for me... 🙏 • Repost from @jilly_london - Claiming my own little part of #letourdefrance today 🇫🇷 On route from Megève, 11.5kms up from Flumet to La Clusaz.

Life lessons demonstrated aptly by bicycle 🖤 In trying to avoid a moderately unpleasant hill today (Beddlestead Lane, 3km @ 3.8%), I ended up with this horrid and much less appealing alternative, which was completely unavoidable by that point. Lesson learned. Don’t think about it, don’t compromise or bargain with yourself, just get that tough shit done! 👊🏼 Day 3 of #Festive500 complete - another 52kms banked 🚴🏼‍♀️ • • • #blondeonabike #bikeadventures #cycling #cyclist #cyclingadventures #cyclingpics #cyclingphotos #lovecycling #outsideisfree #queenofthemountain #stravacycling #cyclingfitness #fitgirl #personaltrainer #strengthcoach #sportsnutrition #trainingaddict #enduranceathlete #roadbike #roadcycling #womenwhoride #inspiringwomentoride #hillclimb #shutuplegs #lifelessons at Biggin Hill, Bromley, United Kingdom

Sideways ponytail = sense of humor fail!!! 😝 Kicking off my #Festive500 with a WINDY 91/500km South West excursion down to Box Hill. Not enough layers for today’s weather so frustratingly I had to call “time” sooner than planned. No problem - 7 more days left to notch up those kms! 🚴🏼‍♀️💙🎉 • #blondeonabike #adventure #bikelife #biking #bikeporn #cycling #cyclist #cyclingpics #cyclingphotos #instacycle #lovecycling #outsideisfree #queenofthemountain #ride #stravacycling #fitgirl #athlete #personaltrainer #strengthcoach #training #train #endurance #roadbike #roadcycling #womenwhoride #inspiringwomentoride #queenofthemtns #adidas at Box Hill, Surrey

Not my usual post genre, but if you have even a passing interest in competitive sports, I urge you to check this Netflix documentary out. “Hectic” doesn’t even begin to cover it. Where do we, as a sporting community, go from here? The assumption going forward, for all athletes, is ”doping until proven clean”? An utterly unbelievable story, framed perfectly by references to Orwell’s 1984, with 1 unequivocal conclusion. 😳 • #blondeonabike #bikelife #biking #cycling #cyclist #lovecycling #ride #fitgirl #athlete #personaltrainer #strengthcoach #training #train #endurance #roadbike #roadcycling #womenwhoride #mtb #mountainbiking #athletics #ioc #wada #icarusdocumentary #netflix #bryanfogel

Celebration time!!! 🎉🍾 After YEARS of doing my indoor bike training in the gym, I’ve invested in a Kickr, and this is officially my last gym bike session🤸🏼‍♀️ Don’t get me wrong, I’m super grateful to have been able to continue training through shitty weather and injury, but I’m SO done with uncomfortable saddles, constantly broken kit, and either a 5am gym trip or having to wait for a bike in peak times (😣). Just the small matter of acquiring a degree to get all Ruby’s tech to talk happily amongst itself, then tweaking Ruby’s gear indexing... @gcnclub I’ll be with you shortly. It’s going to be a whole new winter training world! ⛄️🚴🏼‍♀️ • #biking #cycling #cyclist #cyclingpics #cyclingphotos #instacycle #lovecycling #ride #fitgirl #athlete #personaltrainer #strengthcoach #training #train #endurance #wattbike #roadcycling #womenwhoride #inspiringwomentoride #fitness #fit #health #healthy #strong at Charlton Lido & Lifestyle Club

The 1st time I swapped tyres on my SwissSides, it me took 2 hours 😣 As a result, the task of swapping on my new Conti 4000s has been put off for weeks! But I had 90 mins free today, and was feeling optimistic, so hey-ho, let’s go 👊 Wanna guess how long it took? 😂 (Answer is in the last pic.) It’s not often I wish for male qualities, but today I really could have done with bigger muscles, sheer brute force and the ability to not cry when my frustration levels hit 999/10 😝 The winter mid-ride flat tyre strategy is still going to be “Uber home” for a while! 🚴🏼‍♀️🚘 • #blondeonabike #bikelife #biking #bikeporn #cycling #cyclist #cyclingpics #cyclingphotos #instacycle #lovecycling #outsideisfree #ride #fitgirl #athlete #personaltrainer #strengthcoach #training #train #endurance #roadbike #roadcycling #womenwhoride #inspiringwomentoride #swissside #continentaltyres #lululemon #angermanagement at London, United Kingdom
