GetOutside Champions: Jen and Sim Benson
Jen and Sim Benson are endurance athletes and authors/photographers of outdoor adventure guidebooks.
Anna Hughes is a lifelong cyclist and environmentalist.
A passionate cycle tourer, in 2011 Anna cycled 4000 miles around the coast of Britain. The adventure inspired her to sail around the same coastline two years later. Since then she has completed many bicycle and boat tours around Europe and the UK, including riding from Land’s End to John o’ Groats in 2015.
She is a qualified teacher, cycling instructor, author and experienced speaker, giving regular talks to adults and children about her various adventures, and also writes articles for magazines and websites.
A lover of the outdoors and attracted by the freedom of boat life, Anna has lived on a narrowboat for the past four years, mostly in London and more recently on the Kennet and Avon canal in Bath. She loves inspiring others to enjoy the great outdoors for all the benefits it brings.
