MEET THE FLAMBASSADORS 2017: Kris Baldy
NAME: Kris Baldy
WHERE WILL YOU BE ORGANISING SOCIAL RIDES?
I am based in Trowbridge, Wiltshire so I will run rides primarily from there but if demands dictate am willing to organise rides in surrounding towns. FLAB social rides Wiltshire
WHY DID YOU APPLY TO BE A FLAMBASSADOR?
Exercise should be an important part of everyone's routine and let's face it the more calories you burn the more you can consume! FLAB embraces that concept and encourages the less stereotypical person to squeeze into Lycra and ride. Personally it was the only brand I could fit into when I started cycling and now it is my brand of choice because of the quality and ethos behind it! I want to get more people out on their bikes and building a supportive social network that helps people get and stay healthy!
FAVOURITE CAKE AT THE TEA STOP?
I think if I was pushed I'd go carrot cake! Counts as one of my five a day so it's win win!
WHO IS YOUR DREAM CYCLING BUDDY?
I should probably start by saying my current cycling buddies are an absolute dream but if I could chose one person it'd have to be Boris Johnson and he'd have to be on a Boris bike!
BEST TIP OR PIECE OF CYCLING ADVICE?
Measure the success of your rides on the people you meet and the quality of coffee and cake, not the speed or distance you achieve! Oh and if you are going to fall over while clipped in it is essential you shout "TIMBER!".
