‘I don’t know how She does It!’
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.”
