Velorutionaries - Tracy Noble

What do you do for a living?

I just turned 60 and decided to retire and enjoy my life.

What are you passionate about?

My main passion in life is my grandchildren, and keeping fit and healthy it’s a sure way to have the energy to keep up with them, and then in time hopefully introduce them to cycling.

How long have you been a cyclist?

I used to cycle to school on my small wheeled RSW Raleigh bike when I was younger, my dad always encouraged me as he was a keen cyclist. Then I went on holiday to Switzerland and was bowled over by how much I enjoyed cycling again and took to it like a duck to water as they say!

What bike are you riding?

A beautiful hand-made Retrovelo bicycle that I bought from Velorution Marylebone.

What appeals to you about cycling?

Cycling is wonderful exercise. I have a dog and often after a long walk I put him in the basket and we zoom around Hyde Park with this ears apping, I am sure he is smiling and then we stop for a well earned coffee break.

How often do you ride?

I try to cycle early in the morning before the traffic, or late every evening when London is still calmer. Every weekend I go for a long ride with my good friend Lynne, we cover a lot of miles and come home exhausted!

What’s your favourite cycle route or destination?

My favourite place is Switzerland, I lived there and that’s when my passion for cycling was reignited, but now I live close to Hyde Park so we warm up there first before heading out to Richmond Park, which is great. We have cycled along the coast in Essex and Dorset.
