Maria Clayfield is part of Cycling UK's 100 Women in Cycling 2018 list for her varied and helpful work in cycling around Herefordshire.

Maria has been working and volunteering in cycling for just two years, but has been involved with so much in such a short space of time. At present, Maria works for Herefordshire Council on a project aimed at getting more women cycling, leading short, gentle rides aimed at new or returning riders who need road confidence. Maria is also a Bikeabilty Instructor, teaching in schools around Herefordshire and at holiday clubs, as well as offering one-to-one cycle sessions with adults.

Additionally Maria is a trained bike mechanic and provides Dr Bike sessions, and is a Breeze champion for Shropshire and helps out at local cycling events. In her spare time, she rides with a women’s mountain bike group and Bikejors with her husky, Sky.

Maria says, “I love watching people’s confidence soar when they achieve something they thought was impossible. I like being able to put people at ease and encourage them to do something that could potentially be a life changing experience for them. I’ve seen some complete transformations in personality as people get more confident riding their bikes. They become more confident as women as well as cyclists.”

Cycling UK’s 100 Women in Cycling is an annual list celebrating inspirational women who are encouraging others to take part in this wonderful and life-enhancing activity.
