Anna's been hooked on bikes ever since her first lap of the Hillingdon Cycle Circuit at age 12. For a time, her cycling life centred around racing road and track but has since broadened to include multi-day two-wheeled, one-sleeping-bag adventures over whatever terrain she happens to meet. However, she still enjoys racing and recently competed in the British Gravel Championships and Gritfest 2022, where she made the podium.
