After a fantastic long weekend at the 2017  Camp VC girls only camping weekend, I was lucky enough to chat to Built Magazine about how I got into biking.

If you'd asked me a few years ago if I thought I'd be featured in @Built_Magazine talking about how I got into bikes I'd probably have laughed. However, I'm insanely chuffed to say that it's a reality. A lot has changed in my life since the accident in 2014, but finding motorcycles as a way to fight back in my recovery has been an incredible positive that's brought me to places I would never have even imaged without the accident. I'm mean, TheGirlOnABike wouldn't even exist! Life can throw some storms but I honestly believe that with the right drive there can be a silver lining to every cloud! I want to say thank you toa young all for the energy you give me and for sharing my journey. > If you want to read about my first bike and how I strapped my spear and fins down the side in The Bahamas then grab yourself a copy! > PS – if you buy four copies like me the check out girl will give you really strange looks 😝 . ——————————- Magazine by @built_magazine Mag shots by @raisehellbill Interviewed at @vc_london ride out Bracelet by @rebels_ring Bike by @harleydavidson_uk with kit from @vanceandhines @memphisshades @crusherperformance @mageurope @dragginjeans @hdfootwear ——————————- . #builtmagazine #builtmotor #motorbike #motorcycle #motorbikes #motorcycles #custombike #model #magazinecover #magazinefeature #bikemagazine #HarleyDavidson #mystory #vclondon #HarleyDavidson #ukbikelife #campvc #vccamp #bikergirl #everycloudhasasilverlining #thegirlonabike #womenwhoride #girlswhotravel #tomboy #CrusherPerformance #mageurope #vanceandhines #memphisshades #bikemodel #motocross

I'm a bike loving, free spirited adventurer born and raised in England. Life took a turn in 2014. In a single moment life as I knew it was taken away by the momentary lapse in judgement of a red-light-jumping car while I was cycling. My recovery to fitness took a little over 5 years with 6 major surgeries and since that day I've made it my goal to make the most out of life. My biggest goal is to help encourage others to get up and get out there. It doesn’t matter what it is, but we all start somewhere and if I can do it, so can you! Let’s make the most of life, what we do have around us and have fun doing it.
