Who's who behind the Series?

Ruth Eyles

Ruth Eyles - Series Founder

I got into cycling about 20 years ago and rode my first open time trial in 1998 after five years of cycle touring around the UK and Europe. I dabbled a bit in road racing and track racing but concluded in the end that I didn't like other people dishing out the pain and suffering to me - I preferred to choose how much I suffered for myself! I ended up being a very keen time triallist for about seven or eight years. If someone had told me when I started out that one day I would ride a 100-mile TT I would never have believed them - which just goes to show that you should never say "never"!

I came up with the idea for the Women's Series back in 2007.

I am a triathlete and cyclist who's been participating in the series for a number of years.  I'm a Level 2 triathlon coach for Coventry Triathletes, and an indoor cycling and Wattbike instructor.  I'm actively involved in encouraging women to take up time trialling, and participate in the series. My partner Mark often takes photographs at the series events which are publicly available on our Google+ feed.
