CHALLENGE No 4: Essex 60 mile Bike ride

I was really looking forward to this challenge but my sister and I were not best prepared for the challenge ahead.

It all started at about 7 in the morning when despite my gorgeous little nieces running around and crying because they could go bicycle riding on a Disney princess bike for 60 miles we were trying to get ready. the weather was looking pretty grim but we were both quite excited about today's event taking place.

Although I have been training in spinning classes I had not been on a bike for over a year as I didn't have one, in fact I didn't have one until a couple of house before the race as I had borrowed my brothers bike, not a great bike for road riding but a lot better than no bike at all.

My sister on the other hand had borrowed a bike from a friend and had not even sat on it, as she went to do so she realise that there was no way she could ride on it and after a trip to Halford which was of course closed due to it being every on a Sunday morning I made a seat for her out of leggings. tape and an asda bag lol, still undeterred we set off.

To start of with we felt great and even though soooooooooo many people overtook us we kept on going! About half way though Rebecca's bike lock up and through here down a ditch! I could believe it when she stood up unhurt! it looked nasty after a few minutes rest we carried on for about another 15 mile bring us to what we thought was one of the last bits of the journey there was a short cut but we wanted to prove to ourselves we could do it but then some how missed a sigh and we just carried on! (hence making it 80 miles!)

We both came back battered and bruise and so so tired but so proud of our selves for completing the ride EVEN THOUGH THE FINISH LINE HAD BEEN PACKED AWAY BY THE TIME WE GOT THERE!!!

I would like to say a massive thank you to my sister Rebecca Tyler for completing this tough challenge with me and over coming all the obstetrical in our and even though the SIGN COLLECTING VAN over took us about 2 miles from the end I am very proud of her for getting to the finish line with me, I am very proud of you xxx

Here are a couple of pictures of our day and if you would like to sponsor Rebecca of myself for this bike ride or any other challenge you can do so at

CHALLENGE No 3 . Skydive

I have completed Challenge number 3 a 13,000ft skydive at Hinton Airfield!

Falling at 125mph for 10,000ft is an unreal feeling that I just cant explain but I would do it again in a heart beat!

5th June was the second time we had been to Hinton as the first date 20th May had been cancelled due to our normal British summer time and it was touch and go whether we would be able to jump this time, but luckily we got in to the last two planes to take off that day!

Myself alongside Kim Rance and Jack Williams from Clipso and the rest of my team Sam Varney, Steven Coles, Holly Worthington and Ross Hoyle were able to Jump 5th June 2012 unfortunately the rest of the team are still waiting for the weather to improve!

I cant say I felt nervous about skydiving even though I thought I would, I was just very excited!

If you would like to do a skydive to help Challenge 30 raise money for Hope for Children please CONTACT ME I would if I was you!!! I was amazing!
