My Story: A Woman’s Journey to Joy (Riding)

CBT Rewind back to April 2010. Not very long ago in relation to time itself, but in the world of a Learner Rider, 18 months can feel like an eternity.  After paying out almost £1000 a month to keep various cars on the road, my husband turned to bikes.  He tried the push-bike thing for a while, saving the planet and all...

Great Story

Hi Michelle,

What a really engaging piece of writing.  I thoroughly enjoyed it.  Hope you can inspire many other girls to get on 2 wheels.  Enjoy your lovely ER-6F.  Take care ;-)

Inspiring :)

Hi, I went to do my CBT and was told that a 'nice girl like you should get a pink twist-n-go to keep up with your boyfriend'... no joke! All the men had a good laugh... I guess it didnt help that I was so embarrassed I burst into tears, dreams shattered! So I thank you for this inspiring piece of writing :)
