Tip – There is never an excuse not to ride your bike
What am I doing now – I practically pre-planned a full years riding, many adventures to come – Heading to Ireland and doing some closed roads velos.

Nickname – Cole , Puglet
Club – London Fields Triathlon Club
Bike – Canyon Ultimate (it was a tough choice between that and an Orbea!)
Fav riding spot – in the UK it has to be through Essex, flat and smooth and I can’t resist a stop at the Blackmore Tearooms; best peanut butter in the county and [hands down] the biggest servings of cake. Outside of England, the Morvan National Parks in Burgundy, France are amazing; beautiful lakes and scenic views but be prepared for a few hills…!
First bike – a very entry level Cannondale Synapse, which did what it said on the tin.
Tip – eat
What am I doing now – training for the ETU Middle Distance Championships in Ibiza and mapping out my 2019 race season. Somewhere in between that, I’m probably eating peanut butter…
Ambitions – The list could go on, but I guess the main ones would be to do an epic cycle event next year and (possibly!) do my first full distance triathlon…. we’ll see.

Ambitions: To ride my bike in new places and to go on more adventures. I also have a wild ambition that one day I will own a small bike shop with a little cafe on the side, serving the best coffees and the best veggie food around. Im not even a vegan, I just like food!
