Sara Braidwood is a modern day unsung heroine of cycling, and she’s got the award to prove it! The winner of the 2014 Total Women’s Cycling Unsung Heroine Award was suggested and voted for by her avid supporters – the women she rides with.
Sara is a Breeze Champion, part of the Breeze initiative set up by British Cycling as part of its mission to get one million more women cycling by 2020. Volunteering her time, she’s run over 80 rides and helped more than 500 women discover, or rediscover, the joy of two wheeled transportation. And on top of all that, she also co-ordinates other champions over the Cheshire and Merseyside area.
Her infectious good humour and encouragement have clearly made an impact with the women she’s ridden with, and she represents the very best of grass roots cycling.
