A little update on what's been going on and the future

I am back after a bit of a longer absence than I had planned. Unfortunately, the redesign of this site took a little longer than I had planned and was a lot more complex than I had thought but we are back and I am going to do a little update for you all. 


I am still getting out as much as I can on my stunning Hope Technology HB130 up here in the Scottish Highland with Fort William being my local I am a bit spoilt, to be honest. I love this bike and I am progressing so much after riding it. I just love it, it is the right amount of lightweight and gnarly. It is not only a dream to ride but I mean look at her she is a work of art to look at. If you would like a full review of my bike. I can do that I have had her for almost two years now and I have to say this bike has let me progress and hone my skills way more than I have in the past. 

Being a Hope Technology ambassador is still one of the best things that have happened to my mountain biking and I would thank Hope Tech for picking me every day If I could. Before being an ambassador I owned a few game-changer Hope products but their breaks were the big game-changer for me. I will be doing a full review of these soon. It was buying my Hope Tech E4 brakes many years ago that changed my riding in all the right ways and began my Hope  Tech obsession. They are one cracking British brand that I thought I could only dream to be acquainted with. I will do more posts on Hope soon. I could talk for hours on Hope Technology and how they are amazing and the best bike brand but I will save that for more posts. 


I am delighted that this year I will be an Endura ambassador and will be kitted out in their insanely amazing gear. I have worn and loved Endura for years. My first proper mountain biking top was Endura and I still wear it today. Their gear is not only amazing quality but I love the brand's ethos and there is something special for me to be with a Scottish born brand. I am after all a Highlander. I could go on and on about Endura, like the fact they have planted 1.3 million trees to eliminate Endura’s carbon footprint in a year. I mean YES to this alone but luckily for me their kit is incredible and I feel so lucky to be with them. Lots of Endura kit reviews to come. 

My fitness. 

I am keeping on top of my fitness with the use of Zwift. I spend a lot of time on my turbo train putting the miles in to make sure I am on top form for mountain biking. I also do some weights and stretching. I have fallen off the yoga bandwagon and need to get back on it. I will also be upping my weight training as the downhill season is nearly back upon us. You can follow me on Strava if you want to see what rides I am doing or even Zwift if you are a Zwifter. 

The future. 

So what can you expect from me and this site now that it is finally back up and running? I am looking to do more of what I started. I want to do more kit reviews, more route maps like the Pit downhill trail, more fitness and Zwift updates and much much more. If there is something you think I am missing drop me a comment or pop me a DM on Instagram

I have entered my first race in April PMBA Women's Enduro Gisburn and I am hoping to do a couple more. I think I will do the Ten under the Ben race, this is a 10-hour endurance race around a 10-mile lap route with 400meters of climbing each lap at Nevis Range in Fort William. I am also looking at entering a couple of road biking races this year but more on that later. 

I hope to do a lot more travelling this year with the restrictions easing making more holidays accessible and I will be updating you all on my travel and of course the biking I am doing on them. I will be doing a few youtube videos on my mountain biking adventures as I want to share more of it with you. 

I hope you have enjoyed this little update and I can not wait to share more of my biking and fitness with you all.
