I’m Rachael, a cycling journalist currently on a mission to live life to the full, exploring New Zealand with a ‘now or never’ mindset. A former police officer in the UK, I decided on a change of lifestyle and after a year travelling I worked for the publishing house Immediate Media with my work included in publications such as Mountain Biking UK, Bike Radar and What Mountainbike.

I’m now working closely with Enduro Mountainbike Magazine from here in New Zealand.I’m aiming to document my adventures, produce some cool content and make lots of new friends along the way. I’ll also be putting bike and kit to the test, with some comprehensive group tests in the pipeline, I’ll be making sure the ladies who ride have the information they need to make the right gear choices.

I’m an enduro racer too, I enjoy pushing myself and love the way racing makes me ride. I’ll be getting out and about in the NZ enduro scene this summer and lining up alongside the heap of lady pinners they have out here!
