Mom and Daughter Ride the Breadth of North Wales, Motivated by Family Tragedy.

It was in the autumn of 2020 when I had the idea to take my mum, who hadn’t ridden a bike in over 20 years, across the breadth of North Wales on a bikepacking and camper van adventure.

Why you ask? I’ve been trying for a number of years to help get my mum back outside and exploring again. Having suffered multiple family grievances and battling Cancer all whilst bringing up teenage me as a single parent, it’s safe to say that her confidence along with her adventurous and inquisitive spirit had taken a hit.This trip was the opportunity to change that. 

With the help of an eJimi electric mountain bike from Islabikes, we headed up to our starting point in Llangollen, what happened in the following days provided us stories for life, along with a newfound confidence for my mum, both in herself and her abilities on and off the bike.

Cheers, to the power of riding a bike.
