These unexpectedly lovely words from a lady I helped, you have made my day, thank you and I am glad I could help.

"Good morning Nicole. A testament to all the work you have done on my back feet legs and body. I got through lockdown and seeing clients sitting on a bed working on line. I have just been queueing to get into Ikea for half an hour then walked round Ikea for 2 hours and my back did not ache once. That would have been totally unheard of before you did the work.
Also Marie's back was hurting her a lot. I am very grateful for the time and effort you put into sorting out my flat feet and my posture. It has been so worth it.
Please do use my words in a testimonial and do quote that I am 62 years old".


Nicole Williams Fit for Life

Well that was fun, not, it was a lesson in pain and suffering..! On the up side it was good to get out for the first hilly 20 mile ride in two years on my road bike which took 1 hr 36 minutes. This means that I have done 30+ miles in two days, which is more than I thought I would have done at the start of the week when I was injured at work.

My pre-ride breakfast was a Herbalife nutrition F1 shake and a cup of lemon herbal beverage. For the ride I used H24 CR7 Drive for my hydration and energy needs, plus I had one chocolate peanut protein bar to nibble on every 20 minutes. My post ride recovery was 10 minutes of stretching and then I had H24 Rebuild Strength and for lunch I had a F1 shake with PDM.

Also as part of my recovery and after a shower I am using knee length compression socks to help with reducing swelling and reduce pain.

How To Be A Vegan Athlete

This is worth a watch if you are a vegan or vegetarian and like cycling.

In our interview with Nigel Mitchell we concluded that it is possible to be a vegan pro cyclist - but just might someone like you or I do it? Subscribe to GC...

I have been running a Couch to 50k (30 miles) over the last 10 weeks for our local Breeze network. Here are some of the pictures taken over the last 10 weeks in no particular order.

The average speed at the start of the sessions was only 6mph over a 10 mile course which was fairly flat and by the time we had reached the last ride the ladies were doing an average speed of 12.6 mph over a hilly route around Basingstoke. Well done to the ladies that finished the training.

The route planning for our little adventure in July has now been finished today. Now all we have to do is train, train, train and train even more.


Tarts With Hearts

A little project we are involved with this year :)

Welcome to Tarts with Hearts, we are four likeminded women who have a love and deep passion for cycling, adventure and helping others. We have all raised money for many charities on our own, but now we aim to raise money for four charities by undertaking some rather more challenging adventures as a group.
Our first adventure as Tarts with Hearts starts on the 9thJuly 2017 with a little 1000 mile ride in eight days from John O’Groats to Lands’ End In aid of the following four charities,
β€’ Women Vs Cancer, an umbrella charity for four cancer charities.
β€’ Combat Stress, a charity dealing with the effects of combat on our service men and women.
β€’ Naomi House and Jacksplace Hospices, support children and young people from across central southern England
And finally,
β€’ Horatio’s Garden, this charity helps maintain a garden in Salisbury Hospital spinal unit where patients and their families can go to get some welcome break form the wards and where our support driver spent time in 2016 following a cycling accident.

We will still be helping other charities by being Ride Angles for Women Vs Cancer, Ride the Night 100km ride through London overnight, as well as being Ride Captains the Saints Big Bike Challenge 2017 a 180 mile ride from Stoke City to St Marys in Southampton, in two days, so helping others while training for our main challenge.
Along with all this there will I’m sure be a few more challenges along the way..!
Our fundraising target for this challenge is a minimum of Β£4000. So may we be as bold as to ask you all to dig deep and help us smash this target.


We have had a brilliant couple of weeks coaching with the ladies from Rushmoor and Rushmoor Breeze Network. All the ladies gained some new bike handling skills and improved their confidence as well. Thank you to all the ladies you made it so much fun and this is the reason myself (Nicole Williams) and Natasha Worsfold love Breeze so much.


Today was the first of two coaching sessions in Aldershot. The drive to the venue was horrible in torrential rain, but when we turned the engine off the the rain stopped. We then went to look at the area where we had planned to do the sessions, only to find it under 4" of water! So we looked around the venue and found an alternative area for the coaching before the ladies arrived. The session went well and all the ladies had lots of fun and improved their skills as well as their confidence under sunny sky's. Then just as the last lady got into her car the heaven's opened. All in all it was a great morning.


I (Nicole) have started a little challenge for a couple of weeks.... I am riding to work (11.48 miles) at 06:00 on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from this week (3 day's in now). I am doing this as the start of my base fitness for some big cycling challenges next year when I will be 55.


It has been a busy few weeks with CPD courses so much fun :-D
