A BROCKHILL beauty is hoping to cycle her way to success and be crowned Miss Worcestershire in the new year.
Rachael Baker will usher in 2016 by completing a gruelling 32-mile bike ride on January 2 – barely giving herself time to recover from the New Year’s Eve festivities.
The 22-year-old, who attended RSA Academy Arrow Vale, is fund-raising for the competition’s charity – Beauty With a Purpose – which is at the heart of the Miss World pageant and an important part of Miss Worcestershire.
Rachael will cycle the 32-mile round trip from Redditch to Worcester Warriors Sixways Stadium and back with the help of Team GB cyclist and close friend Beth Crumpton.
“I’m a bit nervous,” said Rachael, “but I am really looking forward to it – I’m training on my exercise bike at home but I haven’t ridden a bike on the road for around ten years.”
