Rider Profile

Nicky Edwards

I have always been up for a challenge.  As a mountain biker I will be well out of my comfort zone on a road bike, as believe it or not I’d rather be throwing myself down a gnarly mountain than cruising on a smooth road for miles and miles. I think it’s going to take me ages!

I’m a mum of 2 little boys aged 2 & 4 so juggling life, work and hobbies is a daily struggle but I wouldn’t have it another way.

Before becoming a mum, I played a lot of sport – mainly water polo but also triathlon, netball and mountain biking.  Since having the boys I haven’t been able to commit as much time to sport as I’d like.
