Lauren Bug - Senior Digital Content Specialist
Do you have a nickname? If so, what is it?
My friends from home call me Ralph or Ralphie, simply because of Ralph Lauren….they're not a very imaginative bunch.
What do you love about cycling?
Overtaking show offs on my way to work, and speeding down hills with my legs off the pedals like a child.
Furthest you've ever cycled?
Just under 400 miles through northern France when I took part in a fundraising ride for Help for Heroes.
What other sports do you enjoy?
To watch; Rugby and football, my mum's a season ticket holder at Arsenal so I get to go with her occasionally. As far as actually taking part in sport, I enjoy running despite being rather terrible at it.
What's your dream goal/ ambition?
To see all the parts of the world, which, when I close my eyes I can't imagine what they're like.
Sum up what you do at The Bug in a sentence…
Other than appointing myself as team baker, my role is to write articles that inspire you to get on your bike.
What might bugs be surprised to know about you?
In the space of 4 days I did a paraglide from Table Mountain, skydiving, went shark diving then topped it all off by doing one of the highest bungee jumps in the world.
If there was a zombie apocalypse what special survival skill could you bring to the table?
I'm really good at hide and seek, so I'd be great at keeping people away from any scary monsters.
Who would you most like to go cycling with and why?
Mark Cavendish, you only need to look at him to understand why my choice doesn't require an explanation!
