Hannah Reynolds is a writer and bike rider who has worked in the cycling industry for over 20 years. She loves racing and demonstrates that lack of talent is no barrier to participation, having competed in everything from downhill to road to 24-hour mountain biking with varying and limited degrees of success. Formerly fitness editor for Cycling Weekly and editor of Cycling Active magazine, she is now a freelance writer covering everything from human interest stories and cycling adventures to nerdy tech and fitness pieces. Hannah has co-written three cycling guidebooks: Fitter, Further, Faster; Get on Your Bike and France en Velo. Working as a guide for Saddle Skedaddle gets her out from behind her laptop and into the hills of the UK and Europe. Based in the Howgill Fells in Cumbria, she can often be found dragging a toddler in a bike trailer up ridiculously steep climbs because cycling changes as life changes – but it’s always there. www.hannahmreynolds.com
