Rachel Stillwell, is originally from New Zealand and is a keen cyclist. She rode right through her pregnancy and now loves to ride with her baby. Here she shares her experience of riding while pregnant and offers some really helpful advice for those hoping to continue cycling through their pregnancy:
My doctor was clear – there’s no danger cycling while pregnant. Providing you don’t crash. It’s a question of individual risk appetite. I asked myself whether I was confident on my bike and willing to accept the chance of a potential fall. I decided to modify my bike route to travel through the park and on cycle lanes, and on that basis, yes, I felt confident riding my bike when I was six months pregnant.
