About Florence Bearman
Florence joined Transaid in 2012 as the Events and Marketing Assistant, and just six months later, was asked if she wanted to take part in Cycle Uganda 2013. Despite not being able to ride a bike, she said yes, and found herself mountain biking through Uganda, with regular breaks to stop and cry. Fast forward four years and Florence is now a keen cyclist, regularly cycling to work. She has done Transaid’s last five cycle challenges – London to Paris, Cycle South Africa, the Celtic Challenge, Cycle Tanzania and Cycle Uganda, has taken on the 116 mile overnight Dunwich Dynamo (twice), and has cycled parts of Portugal and Cambodia. She’s next eyeing up a Seville to Lisbon Challenge, which she is hoping will stand her in good stead for Cycle Zambia 2018.
