TRIATHLETE Emma Sowden will be one of 8,000 cyclists taking part in the Tour of Cambridgeshire this weekend (June 4th) as she rides full pelt in this race on closed roads.
This is a major event in the competitive cycling calendar, a demanding road race in which Emma will be testing her speed and stamina against top riders from around the country. She continues to wrap Bexters crystals around her knees to reduce swelling after a long ride, and enjoys a soak in Bexters crystals when she gets home!
By contrast, last Sunday (May 28th) she adopted a steadier pace in a bike ride through the Leicestershire countryside where she came 2nd in her age category and fifth overall female.
As always, she was riding her trusty Liv triathlon bike, a specific female brand designed for women who are not so tall! Lightweight and aerodynamic it has tri handlebars which allows the rider to cycle in a more aerodynamic position.
