Inspired  by the 2007 TDF, my husband and I bought flat bars in the hope we might eventually  become  fit enough to go on a cycling tour. Somewhere along the way we were introduced to group rides and became hooked. Nine weeks after the flatbar purchase, I had upgraded to a road bike, had all the gear, and was riding nearly every day. By early 08 I  was attempting crit races, doing quite well and absolutely loving it. I joined SKCC and have been racing ever since. Last year I was on the first SKCC womens’ team and have found it a great support.  I come from a completely non sporting life so my cycling has been and still is one huge, rewarding and sometimes challenging learning curve...  We still haven’t made it to that cycling tour.

I'm a 40 something, mother of two who returned to recreational cycling for fitness and weight loss in 2006 and, despite the mountains between St Kilda and Black Rock, remembered how much I enjoyed it!  My first race was late 2007 after participating in an SKCC Coffee Crit (now known as Latte Laps) session with Rob Crowe.  Completely hooked!

I started cycling as part of my rehab to an injured knee due to a fall mountaineering in NZ. I have been racing for a little while but got a bit more serious about my training about 2 years ago. Before cycling I was into Karate which I loved due to the people in the club and I also loved competing. I get the same level of friendship and completion now through cycling. Biggest influence in my cycling has been my husband David Heatley.

I have always liked going fast, whether it be snowboarding, running or cycling. This season is my second season of racing and not surprisingly I am loving crit racing at South Melbourne. The majority of my sporting career has also been in a team environment and being part of the SKCC Women’s team in 2010 made racing even more enjoyable.

I started cycling while recovering from a running injury in 2006 when some friends convinced me to join them on the Wednesday morning SKCC girls ride.  I spent the next few years riding socially and drinking lots of coffee. In 2009, I ramped up my training and competed in a number of club races.  At the moment, I am building up my racing experience with a view to competing in the UK Nationals in June this year when I am over there on an extended holiday!  I love the adrenalin and sense of achievement that you get from cycling, whether riding with friends or racing.

Sport has always been an integral part of my life from a young age. Initially participating in Karate for many years as youngster and this built a passion for competitive sport and the discipline and strength for further sporting endeavours. Netball, tennis, Boxing, and rowing have also been tried and tested. More recently, looking for a new challenge I took up triathlons and have enjoyed training for the 3 disciplines. This was my introduction to cycling and my passion for the sport is only growing. I started off by joining SKCC development squad in 2010 and the SKCC/Giant race team in 2011.
