Mountain Biker / Influencer / Writer / Presenter
Nominated for CMO’s Blogger of the Year, Writer of the Year, and BikeBiz’s Woman of the Year, I am a creative writer, presenter, and passionate mountain biker.
What started as a hobby, mountain biking quickly led me on an incredible journey. In July 2015, I launched this website, Velo Me, a space dedicated to encouraging more women to step out of their comfort zones and get active with mountain biking. The momentum from this venture gained a great deal of traction online, via social media and in the UK mountain bike community.
Following the launch of Velo Me, I began working full-time as a Staff Writer at Total Women’s Cycling, the leading online cycling magazine for women. I worked my way up to the position of Editor, where I continued to run the title single-handedly for a further 18 months.
From there I took up the position of Presenter / Off-Road Content Manager at Play Action Sports, working across the GMBN and EMBN channels. I’ve gained valuable skills in presenting to camera both in a studio environment and out on location. Being the first female off-road presenter is a considerable achievement not only for myself but for women’s representation in this mostly male-dominated sport.
Over the years, I have contributed both written and video work for many other publications including Dirt Mountain Bike Magazine, and I also feature as the subject in a variety of insightful interviews about women in mountain biking.
