Previously Editor here at, Rachael is happiest on two wheels. Partial to a race or two Rachael also likes getting out into the hills with a big bunch of mates. In the past Rachael has written for publications such as, Enduro Mountain Bike Magazine, Mountain Biking UK, Bike Radar, New Zealand Mountain Biker and was also the online editor for Spoke magazine in New Zealand too. For as long as she's been riding, she has been equally happy getting stuck into a kit review as she is creating stories or doing the site admin. When she's not busy with all the above she's roasting coffee or coaching mountain biking in the Forest of Dean.

Oh yes for the grit, gravel and yes the mud that falls out of the sky wink

Love my Aussie Grit Flint Men's Cycling Shorts - a great combination of road lycra padding with MTB outter.

Not impressed by the rest but the Fizik bar tape and the Pactimo bib look like winners to me
