Anita Hartley

MTB Skills Coach

Hey, I’m Anita. I’ve been riding and racing mountain bikes since 2008. You can’t beat the feeling of jumping on the bike and getting out in nature for a pedal. I’m constantly learning and improving my skills and love the feeling of achievement when I conquer a new trail feature that originally seemed so daunting.

I started with a hardtail mountain bike exploring the local woods and finding new trails. Naturally I progressed to longer travel bikes, ventured further afield riding trails and bike parks across the UK and Europe. I love riding new places, meeting likeminded people and having a good time on two wheels!
