Director and Coach
Hannah’s love of the outdoors and in particular mountain biking has taken her to some far flung places in search of trails to ride. Racing internationally in cross-country Hannah’s passion lies in the adventure you can have on two wheels and was the reason behind setting up Beyond the Mud. A qualified mountain bike coach and Pilates instructor Hannah’s goal is to get more people on bikes.

Most recently she competed at the Mega Avalanche which is an endurance race, starting on a glacier in the French Alps. Always keen to pass on her knowledge and encourage riders to progress their riding.
Becky has a passion for getting people outdoors to feel the benefits of nature for both their mind and body. Becky is an experienced guide as well as a coach and has a tool kit of skills to offer riders. She enjoys supporting those who want to learn new skills, gain confidence in their biking or navigation, or just generally want to enjoy and experience nature.
James played, coached and managed inline roller hockey into his twenties. After taking some time away, enjoying life, getting married and having kids he ended up finding cycling to keep fit. Initially just a ‘roadie’ he ended up rekindling his youth getting a mountain bike. Transferring fitness from the road to the dirt was quite easy; learning the technical skills for the muddy stuff was another story.
In autumn 2018 he started studying for a degree in Sports, Fitness and Coaching.

Trail dog, I love sniffing and running. I enjoy playing ball but am highly unlikely to give you the ball back! I help out by checking everyone has the right kit in their bags, I am not nosey just investigating!
