Thanks to the Bicycle Garage, Lilyfield, for the wicked, new season, race kit. Not only does it feel fast and look the goods, but a special order in women’s sizing was too good to pass up. I wrote a column for the current issue of Enduro Mag talking about the secret training rides I’ve been doing with the BG crew. In said column, I mentioned how good my original jersey made me feel, and that I’d probably still wear it if I was rubbish. While this still holds true, there’s always something extra excellent about a snug fitting jersey that stays in place on fast descents and breathes easily in the summertime, and knicks so comfortable you feel like you can ride in them all day. Speaking of which, it is currently the middle of winter in Sydney and today’s balmy weather meant there were no leg warmers in sight. No wonder we look so happy!

Thank you to so many friends near and far for all the birthday messages yesterday. They remind me of so many smiley memories from the last 12+ months made extra special by the people I've been lucky to share them with. 🙌 · This is the top of the Smørdalskammen MTB trail in the Lofoten Islands, up in the Arctic circle, with @thegayesy. The descent back down and the ice box swim we had not long after are massive highlights too. What a landscape!
Tipping it into the weekend like....wooooooo yeeeeeaaaaaa! 🚵♀️✨ · Photo of the 150mm Stumpjumper Expert 29er by @harookz. This is the model that finds lines where there are none. Good times to the maximum!!
So many Stumpjumpers! So much fun to be had! · "With almost as many models to choose from as trails to ride them on – long travel, short travel, big wheels, medium wheels, evo (more gravity focussed), women’s-specced, non-women’s-specced, vegetarian, gluten free… – I took a closer look at what the range offers female riders." · Story on @flow_mtb. Link in bio. Happy reading and riding! · Photo by @harookz. 🙌
Say hello to the new Stumpjumper! 👋👋 · (So *THAT'S* what you were doing in Spain!!!!) · I've written a few different articles from this trip. A women's perspective on the bikes (yep, there's more than one!) is live now on flowmountainbike.com. Link in bio. Lots of great stuff from other writing bikers filling the internet too! · Photo of the women's short travel (130mm) 29er by @harookz. This bike rips!
It's pretty special when your local ride loop is made up of places like this one. 🚴♀️🗺 · Nielson Park, Sydney, not far from Bondi but much quieter. A little sanctuary from the rush of the city.
Experiencing a few small hiccups transitioning from #fullenduro back to #xc. 😂🤣 · Photo (and far more accurate memories about how much air we really used to run back when tubes were it!) by @thegayesy
