Me and my bike: Vogue Williams
What do you get out of it?
I like cycling with a group because you can chat and cycle at the same time and before you know it, you've covered a fair distance.
What bike do you have?
I have a Skoda road bike. My cousin Jeff sells them in his dealership, Annesley Williams.
What is your favourite gear?
For cycling, it has to be the padded shorts… I don't think I could cycle without the padding!
What cycling events have you taken part in?
I have cycled in the Skoda Cycle Series. My first event last year was the Tour of Sligo Sportive which is coming up on April 12. Last year, I took part in the 50km route with my sister, Amber. I was a bit nervous, but the route was flat.
What are the best foods to take?
Personally, I would bring a banana or two and an energy bar. I eat little bits often. I'd also have a water bottle with me.
What is your best advice?
Set a goal. The Skoda Cycle Series has eight sportive events around Ireland from April to August and each event offers different distance options so you can ease yourself in with a 50km route.
