Editor here at off-road.cc, 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.

The petition isn't very well written - it could do with explaining the diference between current regs (grips covering end) and what's needed (proper plugs in the ends). There's a bit more background on the regulations and the petition here https://cyclingindustry.news/petition-urges-industry-to-stop-cutting-corners-on-unsafe-bar-ends/
