To add to the challenge, Spirit MD chose the hottest day of the year to cycle from London to Oxford to raise funds for homelessness charity St Mungos.
When Caroline finally decided to stop supporting from the sidelines to do the 60-mile city-to-city ride for charity back in the spring, little did she know that we’d finally get a real summer in the UK!
After weeks of training around Bristol, Caroline not only discovered muscles that she hadn’t seen for years but also a new passion for cycling. She joined thousands of other cyclists for Bristol’s Biggest Bike Ride where she took on the 38-mile Clevedon Challenge along with plenty of lycra-clad enthusiasts of their road bikes.
But her trusty hybrid proved it was up to the job and Caroline cycled the distance in time to get to Oxford to see Andy Murray win the Wimbledon title and raise over £1,000 for a very worthwhile charity.
