‘I don’t know how She does It!’

Cycling Weekly - - MY FITNESS CHALLENGE -

Gina Cleere’s train­ing part­ner Lee Tooey pro­fesses his ad­mi­ra­tion...

“I met Gina back in early 2015 on a club ride. We got talk­ing on the way round the route and I made the mis­take of sug­gest­ing a friendly mileage chal­lenge for the year — I lost by about 5,000 miles!

“We’ve rid­den thou­sands of miles to­gether, and when a long ride gets cold, wet and mis­er­able, we tend to laugh with each other the most.

We are al­ways at­tend­ing long-dis­tance Au­dax events to­gether or mak­ing up our own routes.

“Our train­ing rides in­ten­si­fied when we signed up for the 1,400km Lon­doned­in­burgh-lon­don 2017. De­spite be­ing knocked off her bike on one event, snap­ping her frame, she still wanted to ride to the fin­ish!

“It’s amaz­ing she finds time to care for her fa­ther and ride so much — she did the Rid­ing Down De­men­tia chal­lenge in hon­our of him.”
