NAME: Karen Wheeler
WHERE WILL YOU BE ORGANISING SOCIAL RIDES?
I'll be riding in Chichester, Bognor Regis FLAB social rides West Sussex
WHY DID YOU APPLY TO BE A FLAMBASSADOR?
I love cycling, love the brand and it's inclusive ethos, but mostly I want to get all the other potential FLABs out on their bikes because it's fun and FLabulous!
FAVOURITE CAKE AT THE TEA STOP?
Cream tea - pot of tea, scone (rhymes with gone), jam and cream - so civilised darling!! Failing that, especially if a morning ride - it's gotta be a bacon butty.
WHO IS YOUR DREAM CYCLING BUDDY?
hmm only the one?? Aside from my cycling besties (they know who they are...) it's got to be my cycling crushes Chris Boardman & Ned Boulting, I always loved their antics on the Tour de France show. (Brad & Cav and the Kenny”s are way too fast for me, but I so love watching them).
BEST TIP OR PIECE OF CYCLING ADVICE?
Remember which foot you've unclipped - saves many an embarrassing slide to the ground. Seat height - correct height = comfy bottom and protected knees. And hills - I hate them, but don't be afraid of them,my mantra is ... just keep spinning (sung in the style of Dory the fish).
