I came to Singletrack having decided there must be more to life than meetings. I like all bikes, but especially unusual ones. More than bikes, I like what bikes do.

They're environmentally friendly and create friendly environments. I try to write about all these things in the hope that others might discover the joy of bikes too.

    Wow! Well done Martha! I remember her as a (very talented) little kid doing xc races in the Bolton area many years ago. She’s also quite an accomplished pianist too I seem to remember.

    We camped next to her and her family at her first Enduro (PMBA Gisburn), she asked me to critique here technique over one of the drops (a bit nose heavy landing but otherwise was bang on) ergo, I taught her everything she knows.

    She also expressed disbelief at how slow my times were 😂

    I also raced XC in the same events as a young Martha. Not sure if being overtaken by her would count as part of her development that I can take credit for? The video link above is a few years old, but illustrates both riding and piano talents.

    That Torridon video is one of my all time favourites. Beautiful film. Music composed and performed by her as well I believe.

    Brilliant rider, always seems to lack the exposure she deserves.
