Could you be a winner?

To vote, you’ll need to go to this voting form here, but before you do, you might like to check out the nominees in each category. If you’re not sure who to vote for, click the links in the category headings to take you to a story about each of the candidates in each category. Voting closes on Sunday 17th September at midnight.

And if that wasn’t enough encouragement to vote, our pals over at DMR Bikes have offered up a star prize of DMR goods for a randomly chosen voter, with an additional ten sets of Deathgrips for runners up. In order to qualify for the prize draw, though, you must have voted in every category.

The winner will get all of: a set of DMR V-Twins, a set of DMR Vaults, a DMR Saddle and a pair of DMR Deathgrip grips. And the nice folks at DMR will make sure you get exactly the colour and model you want so that your bike will be the best-dressed in the street.

Hannah Dobson

Hannah came to Singletrack having decided there must be more to life than meetings. Having worked in policy and project management roles at the Scottish Parliament and in local government, Hannah had organisational skills that SIngletrack needed. She also likes bikes, and likes to write.

Hannah likes all bikes, but especially unusual ones. If it’s a bit odd, or a bit niche, or made of metal, she’s probably going to get excited. If it gets her down some steep stuff, all the better. She’ll give most things a go once, she tries not to say no to anything on a bike, unless she really thinks it’s going to hurt. She’s pretty good with steri-strips.

More than bikes, Hannah likes what bikes do. She thinks that they link people and places; that cycling creates a connection between us and our environment; bikes create communities; deliver freedom; bring joy; and improve fitness. They're environmentally friendly and create friendly environments.

Hannah tries to write about all these things in the hope that others might discover the joy of bikes too.
