NAME: Rafe Aldridge
WHERE WILL YOU BE ORGANISING SOCIAL RIDES?
WHY DID YOU APPLY TO BE A FLAMBASSADOR?
Cycling is something that pretty much anyone can partake in and get a lot out of, whatever their size/fitness/age/health. I want to help spread that message and get people on bikes.
FAVOURITE CAKE AT THE TEA STOP? Chocolate
WHO IS YOUR DREAM CYCLING BUDDY?
Hmm, that's really difficult. I think I'll go with... Anyone that's genuine and wants to give more than they take.
BEST TIP OR PIECE OF CYCLING ADVICE?
Cycling is fundamentally very very simple - you just need a bike (any bike) and a bit of time. Everything else is just an ambition, a luxury or, worst of all, marketing b*******. The best bike in the world is the one you're riding. The best ride in the world is the one you're currently doing. Don't get so fixated by being thinner, faster, going further or having the latest "must-have" that you forget to enjoy what's available to you right now.
