Welcome to the lifeCyclist diaries

Hi. I'm Jane. No bikes are necessary here, just some curiosity and interest in how we can all make the very most our lifeCycle ride.


A bit about me


RjfFwHkE_400x400I'm a wife, mum, daughter and friend. I live in a little village in beautiful Central Scotland. I'm founder and facilitator of The Peloton, a platform that brings women together to talk, whether that's on a one-to-one basis with me or as part of a group. I'm an active listener, discussion group facilitator and bereavement counsellor. I'm an aspiring writer.  I write regularly for SanctusI'm co-Director of Impressions in Stone. I've been, amongst other things, a Samaritan, a Breast Cancer Care B-Aware facilitator, a hospice music therapist (of sorts - I can't read a note...) and a Road Race Director. I'm a Women V Cancer fundraiser and awareness-raiser. I'm passionate about equality and inclusion. I'm a not-so-serious cyclist, a jogger, a Rock Choir and a DanceSing member. I practice yoga, especially when it's hot. I've published one little book. I used to blog here and here regularly but now only occasionally. I'm a poet of sorts, with 'writer and speaker of words that sometimes happen to rhyme' being more appropriate! (I sometimes even write them commercially) I have more than a passing interest in mental health issues and I'm a proud ally of the LGBTI+ community.


A bit about this place


This is a place for my occasional musings as I pedal through life. It's also a base for The Peloton - just till it has a place of its own.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by.
