Kate has always had bikes from a young age being brought up in Cumbria she was often out for hours exploring the lanes although as a teenager swimming was her focus.

Kate started swimming again in2010 as a way of getting fit after a break from training and this lead her to take up triathlon and cycling again which is when she realised that it was the bike that she really loved. After taking part in numerous sportives and commuting to work year round she rode her first proper time trial in 2016 at a local event and fell in love with the sport.

Having always favoured the longer events swimming the length of Windermere in 2013 and completing Iron distance triathlon in 2016 she then completed her first 12hour time trial in 2017 and in 2018 completed her first 24 hour time trial. Joining Born to Bike in 2018 has now given me much more focus and a lovely bunch of like minded.
