Time for some Enduro and trail action on the team - welcome then to Jenny Nuttall, who joins us to help promote this great genre. Read Jenny's bio below and keep checking the website as she adds routes for you to ride and some blogs all about riding the rough stuff at home in the UK and beyond in Europe's high mountains.
I am a mum of two young boys and am lucky enough to live in the Lake District. I have always loved mountain biking but took it up again four years ago with a group of local friends. They were all all boys and at first I was struggling to keep up, but as my skills have developed the gap has been getting closer!
I ride at least once or twice a week, mainly in the Lakes but also Scotland, Wales and the Alps whenever I can.
I started racing 3 years ago; some downhill but mainly Enduro. I love the focus that a race can give you, together with the mental and physical preparation it requires. But the same goes for mountain biking at any time in other styles such as XC - the focus for me is like a physical meditation; I love the feeling of freedom and escape.
My favourite ride is a hike a bike into the wildest of places and as high as I can go....when I have time to get there! I race for Roots Mountain Biking Team and am also an ambassador for Flare Clothing Company. I've met some amazing inspirational people through mountain biking and find myself constantly inspired and energised by my journey on two wheels.
