I broke my back skiing in 2014. I have titanium poles screwed into my spine and a titanium vertebra to replace the one I destroyed.
I was living in Italy as part of my recovery and decided to take up road cycling, joining a club, the Centinarolese (nicknamed I Pansèrs) in 2015. They are a very friendly club. I learnt so much from them and made many new friends.
In November 2015 I returned to London for the winter and joined ICC. Another great club. In September 2017 I was proud to organise the first ICC twinning, when 10 ICCers came out to Italy to ride with my club. A great weekend. Since then the Pansèrs have been to London in 2018 and ICC returned to Fano in 2019.
I now spend the winters in London (ICC) and the summers in Italy (Pansèrs).
