Breeze champion completes end to end ride
Published 13 July 2011
An inspirational Breeze champion from Birmingham has completed the John O'Groats to Lands End ride to raise money for the charity Help the Heroes.
Rachel only started cycling a couple of years ago and trained hard to complete the mammoth ride from one end of the country to the other – a total of 874 miles in 17 days.
Rachel says: "I never thought I'd be cycling from John O'Groats to Lands End and still can’t believe it! I’m really excited about Breeze and can’t wait to help women get out on a bike for the first time, whether it’s for three miles or thirty miles cycling with friends and other women, it’s so much more fun."
As one of our fabulous Breeze champions, Rachel is really excited about helping other women reap the benefits of biking with friends: "I didn’t think I could cycle ten miles two years ago, and now I’m doing nearly a thousand!" Rachel hopes to encourage other women in the Birmingham area to jump on their bike and get cycling, whether it’s just a few miles or even a bit further.
The Breeze team would like to say thanks to Rachel for flying the flag for Breeze along the way and telling lots of women about how they can get involved – thanks Rach and congratulations!
