Despite hailing from the darkside (alright, I know), I have lived and raised my children in Southsea for the last 12 years. My husband did the ride last year, and I was inspired by how much it connected with our local community. Some of the Pompey players came to the afterparty and were dancing around and playing pool with my kids - that's pretty special and not something I've seen anywhere else.
I work as a school librarian and I'm hoping that being on the ride this year will inspire the kids I work with to live active and healthy lifestyles.
When not working or spending time with my family, I am a triathlete and a level 1 triathlon coach. I'm certainly not on the team as the 'token girl'!
