Helen Napier from Manaccan on the Lizard is undergoing intense training for a charity 24 hour solo ride on her Zwift exercise bike later this month. 

The 51 year old has been cycling since January 2021, and is raising money for MS Society UK in honour of her sister who suffers from the condition. 

Helen explained how her training period has gone and why she is undertaking the task: “I have been talking to a lot of people who have done 24 hour rides before and a lot have said I am doing too many big rides beforehand. 

“But for me that is part of the challenge so that I can get a glimpse into people like my sister go on day to day feeling tired, the aches and pains and everything that goes with MS. 
“It is the only way I can get a glimpse into their world, it is part of the challenge.” 
The training for the event started on the November and in that time Helen has already pedalled 2000 miles as part of her training regime.

So far she has raised £1200 of her £2000 target.
