An outdoor all-rounder, Rachael also works for British Cycling, training the next generation of leaders and guides on mountain bike and road bikes. Like anyone who spends a lot of time outdoors, she is a stickler for good equipment and loves testing kit to its limit. She also reports on new product technology for UKClimbing.com.
