Our Cycling Captains Gesine and Francesco represent members on all things bike. To get in touch, speak to them at training or contact them via firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi, I’m Gesine, one of the two bike captains, triathlete, cat owner and also doing a day job. My passion for cycling has always been one to get around independently from A to B, and only recently I have joined the ‘lycra brigade’ with padded shorts and clipless pedals. I love cycling for its shear variety of exploring, socialising, having some mental space on your own, beasting it out on a hill, or simply getting away from London and enjoying the countryside. And the ability to eat cake. Lots.
I am Francesco, the other bike captain. I’m Sardinian and joined Windrush in 2011. I’ve decided to try triathlon after few running events and hours and hours in the saddle on the bike. I like warm water swimming and I have always more layers than anyone else during the rides, just to remind everyone of my Mediterranean roots. I always cycled in my life and more a roady now, but I love some muddy trails when I can.
As bike captains, our goal is to help and facilitate what you want to get out of your riding. This includes building confidence on the bike, introduction to the range of what cycling has to offer, organise social riding and promote events, including racing. If in doubt about what is going on or if you have ideas on your own you would like to promote, it’s easy: just get in touch!
