Cycle for Smart Works 2024

For many women, getting a job is a lifeline. It is a chance to escape poverty, gain financial stability and restore confidence. In the shadow of the cost of living crisis, there is an intensified need for the Smart Works service.

Smart Works is a UK charity that dresses and coaches unemployed women for their job interview. They give women the confidence they need to reach their full potential, secure employment and transform their lives. In the last year, 69% got a job within a month of their appointment.

Between 23rd February and 8th March 2024, I will be cycling to raise vital funds for Smart Works. I will be pedalling for a purpose and would appreciate every pound you are able to give to support this brilliant charity.

YAY – I’ve finally cycled over 100 miles for this amazing charity and raised over £876 so far.

Cycle no #2 and #3 done

Cycle no #2 and #3 done

The cycling has gone well this week – done just over 14.8 miles.

Always feel good after I’ve finished cycling (thank god for padded shorts and seat!).  Legs are feeling better for it.

Starting to feel slightly nervous about the cycling every day for 15 days as I only normally cycling 3-4 times a week - I WILL DO IT!


Day one – 10.02 miles done

Tuesday 13th Feb

I have teamed up with Hollie Culham to cycle 100 miles between 23 February and 8 March 2024 (that’s approximately 6.66 miles per day).

Let’s get cycling

I have an indoor static bike that was brought about 5 years ago which I try to aim to use about 3-4 times a week.  It is a great way to blow of steam after a hard day at work – I’ve recently started following Kayleigh Cohen who specialises in indoor cycling and strength training.

It is also good to have 20-30 minutes of me times during the afternoon just cycling away!

Here’s to the next ride!
