A Mindset story – Jools Walker

When Jools Walker rediscovered her love of cycling, she knew it wouldn’t be easy to make a career of as a young black woman.

But she had no idea quite how challenging life would get; a diagnosis of depression, a mini-stroke, and becoming her mother’s full-time carer in the space of a few short years threatened to send her tumbling from the saddle.

But Jools’ passion, along with her desire to create space for women like her in cycling, helped keep those wheels turning. Now as a published author and public speaker, she’s spreading her powerful mindset far and wide.
