Ladies mountain biking is evolving as Meg Broswick explains

Mountain biking is evolving, growing and becoming more mainstream, and I’m ok with it. I have watched this happen before my eyes, living and riding bikes in British Columbia, Canada over the last decade. There never used to be ladies only rides or clinics, or if there were they weren’t in most of our communities. […]

The road to recovery and back to the UK

It’s been nearly 6months since I broke both arms crashing my bike into a tree while play riding on my local Nelson trails. My right required surgery, placing two plates to hold together the many fragments of the shattered radius and ulna. After 6weeks completely off the bike I was able to start ‘nana’ riding […]

Part two of Ingrid’s amazing summer – Bike plus girl verses the best the Lakes can offer

Having hiked my bike in the Cairngorms and got back to a level of fitness I was happy with, I felt ready to return to the one place that I was longing to explore again.  I headed to the Lakes. I started by returning to trails I knew.  Next I asked round bike shops for […]

Ingrid Garrioch shares part one of her journey from the Lil rock to the Big rock

Last year was both overwhelming and exciting.  It was my first year as a sponsored rider and I couldn’t have been happier or more excited.  I love learning and I wanted to learn from every mistake, race and experience I could get.  Unfortunately things didn’t pan out and after racing the Strathpuffer I felt like […]

Zara Kane explains why Charlie Brown should be an inspiration to us all

The creator of the Peanuts cartoons once said of his character Charlie Brown, that “he must be the one who suffers, because he is a caricature of the average person. Most of us are much more acquainted with losing than winning.”  – I could not think of a better way to describe my 2016. Like […]

Training for Big Days and the Journey Home – Ingrid’s final blog

Returning to the road after Eastbourne, I had a race coming up which I was keen to get working towards.  Despite not enjoying or riding my best in the trees, I headed for trails that I knew I needed to practice around Aviemore.   I looped fire roads in between trails, practicing skills I had been […]

How to have a baby, pick up a bike and take the win – Carrie

When Nick Hamilton asked if I would race the Howard St Dual slalom race that he was organising down the streets of Sheffield as part of the Outdoor City Weekender, I was a little unsure. My last race was September 2015 before I became pregnant and had a baby in November 2016, so I was […]

First time at Bike Park Wales – Jael

Finally, the day is here the BPW road trip begins. Thankfully not too much of an early start. We set off about 8:30am and cruised down to the Forest of Dean. Once there, we (my mum, my dad and I) got ready and waited for our mates to arrive. While we were waiting, my mum […]
