I am Jess, a redhead, vegan, cyclist from Australia who is currently riding in London, UK.
I started and captain the UK's first all-women track cycling team, Velociposse!!! (Velociposse.cc)
I fell in love with riding bikes when I moved to the UK; it started so slowly and now here I am… just a girl in front of a computer, decked out in Lycra, asking you to call a bottle a bidon.
I write a blog called Spoke and Words with the hope of connecting to other women (and men!) who are commuting, racing, getting fit, or just beginning the long navigation into the world of the bike.I believe in the power of the bicycle, as riding one has contributed so much positivity in my life; I want to share that with others.
I’ve been a vegan (off-and-on) since I was 17, and I was vegetarian before that, since I was 13. I’ve been a speaker at Vegan Futures, and I am working on a Veganuary collaboration with another woman, vegan cyclist, Laura Scott!!
