Bike exploring: Electric Mountain Bike Adventure
As part of #BigBikeRevival and #BikeWeek2018, Helen Pollard takes us on an electric mountain bike route from Castle Bolton to Askrigg.
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.
