The training I have done includes cyclocross, road, outdoor track and indoor track at Manchester Velodrome. At the moment I am doing most of my training online via Zoom and using generic cycling programmes. I also like to go out and cycle in the local area.
I have raced cyclocross, circuit races, hill climbs and time trails and indoor and outdoor track. I have been quite successful in my category and have been placed on the podium which means I have received prize money which helps to fund my cycling. Just before lockdown I got awarded most improved female and youth female hill climb champion.
During lockdown I have competed in some online Zwift races and in the last couple of days I have joined the online Zwift race team Manchester Cycling Academy. This means I can race against other colleges and universities.
I love cycling because it keeps me fit and active. I enjoy meeting new people who share the same interests as I do and I like the challenge of competing against other people as this helps me to improve.
In order to develop my cycling, I am considering attending Manchester Cycling Academy when I leave high school this year. I will also to continue to cycle for fun and competitively when it is safe to.
