I enjoy keeping fit and have recently taken up cycling as something new to challenge myself with.

How did you get into cycling – any tips for beginners?

I am still fairly new to cycling but I loved going to the spin classes at my gym and felt that cycling was the next step. I love being able to go outdoors and explore different areas. My advice would be to go on rides with a friend to get a coffee and cake – its great motivation to keep going those extra few miles!

What’s your favourite cycling snack?

I really enjoy having chocolate covered almonds as something sweet to keep me going.

What’s the one piece of kit that you need for a long ride?

Definitely spare inner tubes!

Why are you keen to support Cure Leukaemia by riding the London 2 Paris?

Cure Leukaemia offer such great care to patients in our area and what better way support them by riding from London 2 Paris! I love challenging myself and knowing that Team Booths will be helping a fantastic charity to save lives is easily the best motivation.

Where in the world would you love to visit and why?

I would love to visit America and do a road trip around California, its somewhere I’ve always wanted to go explore.
