“I originally hired a bike from Mikes Bikes for the Hannah Barnes led ride which Sally and the team organised, I had such a good time that I just had to have my own bike! Thanks to Sally for all the help and advice when choosing my Specialized Rumor which I love. Since getting my bike I’ve hardly been off it, I’ve joined the local Petal Power group, joined in with lots of ladies mountain bike events and have just signed up for my first enduro!” – September 2016
