Is it just about cycling? It’s about the adventure. It’s about the challenge. So the challenge to be able to say “I have cycled from, I don’t know, England through Europe, from country to country, is awesome: it’s something I’m quite proud of”. And I think it’s a great cause to be a part of.

It’s not just about the cycling although that’s a key part of it: it’s what unites everybody. So the camaraderie, the culture, the food, the sort of, just having fun and being in the outside. That’s what I love.

Well, the cycling is a means of getting fit, seeing the countryside, socialising with friends. So in that sense, it’s about the cycling but there’s obviously a lot more to it that goes into that.

Absolutely not. I mean the cycling’s great, but actually it’s the whole experience, and one of the best ways to see a country I think is cycling through it.

No it’s not just about the cycling. There are some very like-minded people there – people who you haven’t met before, different walks of life, a good mix of people.

No I think it’s about seeing different countries for me, it’s about meeting lots of people – I love meeting new people and socialising. So it’s kind of an all round get fit, go with my husband as well, have a little mini-holiday, and cycle to see the world.

Nope, it’s about cycling, it’s about the fact that you were doing it for a good cause. I think for me if it were just about the cycling I wouldn’t do it. And that whole camaraderie, that whole sense of shared experience: you know, you share your successes, you share your small failures.

No, actually that’s a good question. No. To me, I mean Geneva to Milan, seeing Lake Como is a place I’ve always wanted to go to, and am really really excited to go to, and now we’re going on a bicycle. I mean that’s what’s getting me going. And again the meeting of people.

Definitely not no, it’s just for such a great cause, and to know that you’re doing something that is really enjoyable and it’s great fun and you’re raising money hopefully for a really good cause.

Oh no, no no. Now that I think about the bigger picture, because you know I only did London to Paris thinking that’s maybe all I’ll do. I actually, you know, bigger picture thinking, this keeps me fit for 25 years…. what a winner will I be.
