Hannah Barnes:NorthWest-A mountain bike adventure through the Scottish Highlands
New Video! Cut Media film ‘North West’ is here! Check out this epic mountain bike adventure up the beautiful West coast of Scotland. Thankyou to Orange Mountain Bikes, The Outdoor Capital of the UK, Visit Scotland… and to Breabach for the incredible tunes! Sit down with a cup of tea and enjoy! 🙂
Good short movie.Posted 4 years ago
You think the choice of rider was made to get more women into mountain biking? Given the bikini shot, I’d say that the sponsors know exactly who their target demographic is. 🙂
The next question is, will my blog be more popular if I include some gratuitous shots of myself at the beach?Posted 4 years agoAlasdairMcMember
I was a bit put off by the opening shot in her pants, then the bikini shot. What benefit does that give whatsoever, if anything it diminishes the fact it’s a nice video with good scenery and she makes for a good presenter. Women in biking is a good thing, but can you realistically see them showing your average male biker in their boxers then going for a dip in their Speedos?
Another thing I liked was that it’s brutally honest about how much biking in Scotland is either pushing or bog related. Maybe not ideal for a film supported by visitscotland though…Posted 4 years ago

Here’s another Barnes in his pantsPosted 4 years ago
No shortage of random Dudes swimming scenes either, though I didn’t go looking for those as it might turn me.globaltiMember
Scotland’s alright in May or June before the rain and the midges get going, especially when you’ve got a support crew, a comfy camper to sleep in and clean dry kit every day.
Lovely images though; I’ll watch it properly on the Mac this evening.Posted 4 years agoBlackhoundSubscriber
I enjoyed it, but then I like just riding through places from point to point. Makes me want to go up there next year.
Hannah did present it well as well though next time maybe she could carry all her own kit for the full bikepacking experience.
Will be leaving bikini at home though….Posted 4 years agoxiphonMember
What is the video selling? Scotland’s riding? Her Five?
(You don’t put that much effort into a vid for nothing, especially with sponsors on board)
How confusing, there are TWO cyclists called Hannah Barnes. The other is a very good roadie.
Same person (she’s been on the front cover of many cycle mags over the years)Posted 4 years agoroverpigSubscriber
I don’t get the perving over Ms Barnes. The underwear and bikini shots just imply somebody who is comfortable in their own body and who likes a swim. She always seems pretty natural and I like her smooth style on a bike, but I can’t really see her as a sex object. Maybe I’m just getting old.Posted 4 years ago
