At Total Women’s Cycling, we ride plenty of bikes from many brands across all avenues of cycling. Short distances, long, cross-country and fire roads, we cover many miles and we’ve picked up some useful things along the way.
Bikes can be incredibly personal. It’s not just because you work hard, save the pennies and invest in an ‘object’ to make you happy, you put faith and reliance in your two-wheeled machine to take you on adventures and wheel you out of your comfort zone to areas you never knew you could go. They are truly wonderful things.
So what do we do when we gush over something so special to us? We share it. Social media has enabled us to share (often over-share) moments, memories and thoughts as a snapshot insight into our lives. We’re launching a new ‘Bike in the Spotlight’ feature on TWC because we want to see the bicycle(s) that makes you happy and feel alive. So to kick things off, here’s my road bike…
Jessica’s Trek Silque SLR7

I’ve come to view my Silque as an extension of me, an additional limb to help cycle me through life.
