Beautiful day

We achieved the target and then some - thank you so much for supporting the ride yesterday. It was a beautiful day and incredibly special to ride for such an important cause raising money to support women who have endured and survived horrors, with the memory of those who have lost their lives to male violence close to our hearts. 

One of the most beautiful elements for me, was my friend's nine year old leading the way home, so confident, brave and happy. Watching from further back, I saw a symbolic image of a group of powerful determined women watching out for and supporting a woman of the future. 

I'd also like to share that the Chief Executive of nia sent a message saying "Thank you, all of you, so much." which nearly ended me. I know the depth contained in those simple words, and am so grateful to have been able to bring together our small group to do this lovely ride and raise much needed funds. 

Attaching an image from our wonderful day. This was when we reached our destination and had some howling laughter and sharing before riding home! Thank you all. Lots of love xxxx1594538379_img_20200711_141419.jpg

On Saturday 11th July I am riding with women to raise money for the Nia Project. When I lived in London I volunteered with this organisation and saw first hand how they support and advocate for women who have experienced violence. 

It has taken me until the age of 40 to learn how to ride a bike properly, and this simple skill has given me confidence, strength and a sense of freedom that all should be free to experience. For those who are not free from abuse, for those on their journeys to freedom, for those who have yet to realise their potential, for the women I had the privilege of spending time with, and in honour of those who lost their lives because of male violence, I ride. 

I will be joined by other women, sharing in solidarity and sisterhood our commitment to ending male violence, and supporting women.
