cycling whilst pregnnat
I have just found out that I am 6 weeks pergnant with my 2nd baby. I have enetered and have been training over the last couple of months for the Argus cycle race - I would like to know if there is any danger for the baby should I do this race - I am 36, fit, healthy, in shape and have low bloodpressure. I have also done several races before so I know what the race entails.
Please advise.Thanks

I agree with Yolande. Pushing your heart rate and your temperature up too high are not good for the baby, and there is also the danger of falling and injuring yourself.
