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.

The Challenge

Tuesday 27th Feb
There are many bikes in my home, none of them belong to me. In fact I NEVER cycle, one of the last times I did was round the vineyards of France and let’s be honest that gave me my motivation at the end of the journey! 

Yet somehow I have still put myself forward for this challenge to Cycle for Smart Works this International Women’s Day. My target is 50 miles which considering my lack of bike and it being my absolute busiest time at work with a lot of evening events, makes this a big challenge for me which I hope you will support me on. 

First Ride!
