I'm Laura, and I come from the north of England (cumbria).
After seeing my weight escalate to about 17st 9lb, I finally snapped and decided to do something about it. I'm now down to 16st on the nose, and finally have enough energy to cycle for more than 10 minutes at a time!
I'm a mother of two, and our 4 year old cycles with us in the afternoons. It's great because his pace is about level with my very unfit/slow pace . The baby sits in a child seat on the back of his dads bike.
I really hope to keep this up, as this is the only sport I have every really enjoyed!
