This is my last podcast episode. 2 years after starting Velo Dulce, I've decided to wrap up the show. I wanted to wrap it up by saying thank you to all the incredible women I've had the privilege to interview over the years. Thank you for all your wisdom, stories of bravery and courage, your authenticity and your wanting to make the world a better and brighter place. There were a few lessons I personally learned from the show; You're just the same as anyone else and yet at the same time not at all so don't compare your journey to anyone else. It's always hard, so you just have to choose y ..read more

I recently cycled the Camino de Santiago. I wanted to share my thoughts here not because it was some epic physical feat but rather because it was a soulful excursion with a couple of life lessons learnt along the way. I learnt that 'el camino' means 'the way' and it really was a reflection on life and how we find ourselves on and off our paths. If you want to check out the 1-minute video, check it out here.

Kim Brearley describes herself as "one of the ladies who rides" but having recently completed The Munga, one of the toughest races on earth, I'd say she's anything but.
