Charlotte Batty joins us today. She is a long-time friend who is based out of the same town as Molly and Peter in Ontario, Canada. She took a few months off work and chased the best mountain bike spots in the USA over the 2017 Winter and tells us about her rides and some of her experiences learning to ride better and helping other women learn to ride better.


Charlotte raced as a top-level Junior mountain bike racer. As she reached the pro-ranks she decided to diverge from bike racing and pursue work, friends and re-connect with cycling. Ten Years later she rides more than ever and has spent the last 3 months traveling to the best MTB spots in the U.S.A.
