Bollfilter UK Spares Manager Janine Harris is taking part in the North 450 Cycling Challenge from Edinburgh to Windsor, to raise money for Help for Hero’s -

Janine, what made you want to take part in this challenge?
J: As with a lot of people, the new year brings new resolutions. A new year, a new me. A fitter me.
But, by the middle of January, most people’s best intentions don’t quite meet their expectations and I didn’t want to fall into this trap.

So why did you choose the North 450?
J: I wanted a challenge that was going to take me out of my comfort zone and keep me accountable to maintaining that New Year resolution.
Cycling 450 miles with a 20 week training program was an achievable goal with a timeline. I also wanted to do my part to support such a wonderful charity.


What do you hope to get out of it?
J: When I read statements from people who completed the ride in previous years, they all remarked on what an incredible & unique experience it was for them to ride alongside such inspiring individuals, as well as forming life-long friendships.
I hope to gain some wonderful memories and, observe for myself, how the support given by the fundraisers can change lives.

Are you going to keep us up-to-date between now and when you start?
J: Yes, I will be doing a daily cycle update on facebook & twitter, so please follow my progress and all donations will be hugely welcomed & appreciated.
