Aoife Glass

After taking up cycling to work to save money, Aoife was introduced to the joys of mountain biking by some friends and gradually her passion for all things bike-related took over her life. She abandoned a long career talking about science at the Natural History Museum to write about cycling instead, and is loving every minute! When not at her computer, she can be found up a mountain somewhere, on her MTB.
