Lucy started mountain biking ten years ago at the age of 40, and was instantly hooked. Today she runs Swift Trails, a Scottish mountain biking business which aims to encourage more women into the activity. Lucy is a guide and instructor, running skills courses, monthly ride-outs, bike maintenance workshops and a weekly Wednesday night social group that welcomes women riders of all fitness levels and technical abilities.
Lucy says, “Mountain biking allows me to get out into wild places in our beautiful Tweed Valley. Through biking I have met many wonderful and inspiring women from different age groups and backgrounds who I am privileged to call my friends. Biking keeps me feeling young and adventurous and has built my confidence in the outdoors.”
