    Deborah Cordingley So a little about me... I've been cycling since I was knee high to a grasshopper, my first real bike was my beloved Chopper but I spent most of the time battering my sister's BMX on the home made ramps in the local woods and have owned all sorts of bikes since then. I love being out on my bike whatever the weather, I think cycling is the perfect pace at which to watch the world go by. I've done a few challenging in my cycling lifetime including Lands End to John O'Groats and the Mountain Mayhem 24hour mountain bike race! I can't get enough of these challenges however I'm just as happy touring around the local area on a Sunday afternoon...a cake and coffee stop a must! I'm really excited to be taking you on your SkyRide this weekend, fingers crossed for great weather but whatever the weather we'll have a great ride! See you soon, Debs
