Grace joined me for an evening chat about everything mountain bike related, her love for the scene and of course to talk about her very informative ladies mountain bike website, Cranky Betty.

I really enjoyed chatting with Grace and I was pretty surprised with some of the things she had to say. Grace was very forthcoming regarding how she got started in mountain biking, what she loves about it, how she keeps motivated and why she felt she needed to start a website, mainly aimed at ladies interested in mountain biking. She shares her travel stories and how she got to interview one of the best downhill lady racers on the planet (through buying shorts!).

Grace also shares how you can get involved with Cranky Betty and help the ladies mountain bike scene grow. Also, how she feels you should best start out and what pitfalls you may come up against.

I had such a great time talking with Grace and thank her so much for coming on the show. So please, download the podcast, visit CrankyBetty.co.uk and get stoked for the trails.
