Biography:

"I been riding bikes for as long as I remember. At 5 years old I entered my first bike race and carried on racing cyclo-cross, road and track throughout my childhood. Hitting the teenage years, I fell into the typical black hole of rejecting bike life in exchange of parties. When I went to university in London, my bike joined me and became a necessary tool for getting around. It led to me taking a National Standards Cycling Instructor course and doing a dissertation about cycling and other road users in London. My passion for getting women on bikes stemmed from those years of transition from child to adult where I had no female friends to ride with, it really bothered me. Plus my research and teaching in road cycling safety showed me that there was a disparity between men's and women's cycling. I started a women's grassroots race team, a women's cycle clothing brand and was given my first TV presenting role on ITV's The Cycle Show. The last 10 years have been spent working in cycling media in various design and presenting jobs, travelling about looking for great riding destinations and throwing myself into any 2-wheeled event, from racing down a glacier in the Megavalanche, backflipping a BMX, attempting the longest skid on a fixie and co/creating the women's track racing festival, VeloJam.

I'm delighted to be part of Cycling UK's Women's Festival of Cycling Launch, it is a campaign truly close to my heart. It is work like theirs that has changed the world of women's cycling beyond recognition in the last decade. Gone are the days when it took a lone woman a mammoth effort of courage to turn up at a weekend club rub, nowadays it is rare to be the only women at an event. And it is down to the grassroots, the "normal" women who are making cycling accessible in their area or community. Thanks to Cycling UK, last year I met an 80 year old rider and race organiser, Muslim women cyclists breaking down cultural barriers, unlikely campaigners for safer cycle lanes in their town...

There is still more to be done, more to campaign for until the cycling playing field is gender equal, as it is in other European countries. The Women's Festival of Cycling is fun and celebratory with an important message. I am proud to help share that message."
