Gear up Girl

A few weeks ago , a facebook post offered the chance to be a brand Warrior for Gear up Girl.
So I applied.

If you have been following along with my latest passion - cycling - adventures . The biggest being 700km (of 1000km) charity ride the first week of October for TourDe Oroc . Then a 56km day ride to finish with Zoo 2 Zoo, and riding a bike leg in my first Triathlon  - it's being EPIC.

Imagine my surprise and exhilaration when I opened this email yesterday.

Heart Foundation Gear Up Girl is proud to announce that YOU have been selected as an ambassador for the 2018 event!
After 3,000 applications you have been specifically chosen for your love of cycling and how it has played a major role in your life.  You will be a fantastic role model for women everywhere and we can't wait to have you on board!
I  don't get any financial payment though I will get to my entry and opportunity to attend the event as a VIP and maybe some kit.
Save the Date - - March 11th 2018

It's also the privilege of being an ambassador to encourage women in healthy lifestyles and fitness.
Extremely important to me as it reduces the risk of heart disease (and all cancers). It also reduces the risk of recurrence in breast cancer and the further risk being in early menopause puts me at for HEART DISEASE.
  • Riding a bike is a great way for people of all ages and of all levels of fitness to get active and keep healthy.
  • Regular exercise is really important to keep our bodies and minds healthy. It’s essential for heart health.
Gear Up Girl is a 'vehicle' for creating a community of women to support each other as they endeavour to live lifestyles of health and fitness. We want to grow women’s cycling and we want you to help us create a welcoming environment to help grow the sport and the Heart Foundation Gear Up Girl. 

There are Four rides to choose from and chldren can get involved too, subject to certain conditions.

I am leaning towards the 80km Challenge ride

I am so excited to be associated with a group of encouraging and inspiring women and have the satisfaction of knowing that together we may have made a difference in someone else’s life.
