Meet the Champions

  • Heather Cater Heather Cater Hello,
    I love cycling, of all types on all bikes and have done since I was little. Whether its on road or off road or both. I used to take my girls bike out onto the local BMX track! I also love exploring and finding new routes, and being on a bike means I get to explore even further. I'd love to share my bike rides with other ladies and encourage more people to get out there on their bikes and see the countryside. We have the best cycling environment in Newbury with Greenham Common on one side, the Ridgeway just to the North and the Kennet and Avon Canal in the middle. Something for everyone, whatever the weather. I hope you can join me.
