Within three months, I was back riding with Njinga, albeit slower but determined. The supportive and nurturing environment of Njinga's community played a crucial role in my physical and mental healing. It was exactly what I needed to continue pursuing my goal of RideLondon.Surpassing Goals and Overcoming Obstacles
To reignite my preparations, I joined Njinga's eight-week RideLondon group indoor training programme
. The programme, led by a British Cycling coach, provided a comprehensive approach to training. From meal planners to Fuel Smart strategies, it covered all aspects of preparation. I also saw improvements in my FTP score, increasing by 11 watts over the eight weeks.
Additionally, I became part of the Njinga Collective
, a not-for-profit cycling club.
