MEET THE FLAMBASSADORS 2017: Theresa Peacock
NAME: Theresa Peacock
WHERE WILL YOU BE ORGANISING SOCIAL RIDES? 'm aiming to organise rides all over the Nottingham area, the first one will either be from oxton to gunthorpe (cake stop) and back it from spoke and co ( great cakes and sausage rolls) out for 15-20 miles and back ( cakes at the end )
FLAB social rides Newark/Nottingham
WHY DID YOU APPLY TO BE A FLAMBASSADOR? I love what FLAB stands for getting people out cycling. All shapes, sizes and abilities. I'm not the fastest cyclist and you don't have to be to be out on a bike.Plus I love the clothing......
FAVOURITE CAKE AT THE TEA STOP?
My fave cake Rocky road, yum yum
WHO IS YOUR DREAM CYCLING BUDDY?
My dream cycling buddy has to be Mark Cavendish.... Very nice
BEST TIP OR PIECE OF CYCLING ADVICE?
When riding on the road, be strong and ride confidently- you have as much right to be on the roads as the cars.
Clip pedals - love em or hate em - my first experience - not good - fell off, oops and yes it hurt. It's taken me a while to get back in them. Gradually I'm getting there. Flat areas / great, Hills - not so confident. Practicing in trainers, but I plan on swapping over permanently by the end of the year.
Gears - I've always struggled to get my head around gears, to the other halves despair. I now understand them better, more able to get up those hills although hills and I aren't the best of friends but I plan on taming them............ If I can do it anyone can!!
I love a banana sarnie before a ride or porridge and a banana before a sportive ..... yep I like banana ?
