Sport specific information

Why this sport?
She was told about RaceRunning by a friend. "I didn't think I would do it, and it would be unsafe. But you can't do anything until you give it a try. I went very slowly. When I got the bike customised for me later I felt much safer and wanted to carry on. Fortunately I got faster! For me, it was a liberating feeling to move from one place to another in a 'normal' way."
