What was your reason for wanting to ride the Trafalgar Way?

Having had breast cancer in 2019, I wanted to see if I was up to the challenge. It also seemed like a good opportunity to do some fundraising. We raised over £3,600 for Cancer Research UK…people’s generosity was just overwhelming.

How would you sum up your ride of the Trafalgar Way to a friend? 

Epic, just epic.

What was your most memorable part of the ride?

There’s too many to pick just one. I loved rolling out of the sleepy Falmouth town centre under a blue sky accompanied by flurries of excitement and trepidation in equal measure. I loved arriving at the feed stop and being met by Paul and a mountain of toast! I loved whizzing down the lanes of Dorset in the fading light with the gorgeous Jurassic coast to our right. And finally, cycling down The Mall to the Admiralty Arch and being met by my mum and brother. It was such an amazing experience from start to finish.

What are your top 3 tips for anyone thinking of riding the Trafalgar Way?

1. Just do it! 2. Remember to look up…you won’t be able to stop smiling. 3. Eat a lot!

What are your top bits of equipment or kit you wouldn’t want to ride the Trafalgar Way without?

Our Exposure lights were amazing! They were a perfect level of brightness making the middle of the night stints even more enjoyable.

What bike (make and model) and chainset / cassette set up did you ride the Trafalgar Way with (if available)?

Scott Contessa Addict Gravel. GRX 800 Chainset 48/31. Cassette 11-34. Hunt 44 Carbon Disc wheels. Conti GP5000s
