Lisa Pugh started the Facebook group Surrey Hills MTB Chix along with another of this year's 100 Women in Cycling, Marcia Ellis. The group aims to encourage women of all abilities to ride in the Surrey Hills, and now has over 280 members.
For Lisa, the best part is, “Meeting likeminded riders and seeing confidence and abilities grow. Also watching members of the group entering races and seeing their faces both during and after the events.”
Lisa’s nomination reads, “Lisa is super amazing and encouraging to all who ride and never stops to think about herself just always of others. She has endless patience and has grown her own self confidence on her bike from little rollers to hitting big challenges and now entering her first enduro and encouraging others to do the same and join in.”
