Rachel interviews her sporting inspiration, Ishbel Taromsari, aka World Bike Girl

Everyone has their own role models and Rachel, a member of the Young people's sport panel, recently met one of hers. Here is her story . . . 

"I've had the incredible opportunity to interview Ishbel Taromsari, also known as World Bike Girl. Ishbel has cycled solo across 20 countries around the world including Bolivia, Iran, Turkey and Slovenia.

"At the beginning of June this year, she is set to travel to Brazil, cycling 4500km. Afterwards, Ishbel will be releasing a book about her adventures. 

"Her story is a fantastic example of just how much sport can offer you. Ishbel is an inspiration to me because of her courage and determination, someone who has followed her heart to do what she loves doing. I hope you enjoy watching our interview."
