Cycling and Cookies!

10th June 2016

Lotta Mansfield, one of our pupils in Year 8  has taken to the internet with a video of her showing her impressive cycling skills as she bakes a tray of cookies.

Lotta is sponsored by Raleigh and signed by The MI Racing Academy. She is filmed riding her bike in the kitchen on a set of rollers.

Lotta is encouraging girls to watch her video that she filmed at the start of the year, as part of This Girl Can Week which is from June 6-12.

This Girl Can is a national campaign developed by Sport England and a wide range of partnership organisations.

It is a celebration of active women up and down the country who are doing their ‘thing’ no matter how well they do it or how they look.

Lotta has been racing competitively for eight years and has bagged titles such as the Mallory Park RR League 2015 and the Midlands XC in 2013 and 2015.

Lotta said: “Girls should be racing and doing other sports, there’s normally only a few girls cycling so I love when first timers come just to give it a go.”

“I made the video because I wanted to show people that if you practice something you will become better at it. I have been practicing riding on the rollers for a long time so I made the video to show I had worked hard. I also made the videos because I love cookies!”
