Well done Lucy! Lucy completed the Ride London event last Sunday, cycling 100 miles through London and Surrey. She was one of around 25,000 cyclists who took part in probably the most popular sportive in the country, whilst over 5,000 completed the shorter distance of 46 miles.
What makes Lucy’s achievement even greater is that in September 2018 Lucy fell off her bike and ruptured 2 ligaments in her knee. She then spent several months rehabbing and training with Charlotte, gradually building up strength and slowly making her knee stable enough to go back to cycling without the need for any surgery.
Getting back on the bike in February 2019 after 6 months off, Lucy started preparing for London by continuing sessions with Charlotte and introducing running for fitness. She completed the 100 mile ride in 5hrs 45mins with no knee pain, but a big smile and sense of pride.
Lucy plans on taking part again next year and it looks like several of the PB team will join her for the challenge.
