Caroline - CEO
Caroline has always been into sport of some sort or another - hockey, swimming, horse-riding, marathon running, commuting by bike... the list goes on. However, it was only later in life that she discovered the fun of competitive cycling through the cyclocross community. Taking 4 small children to race their own races at cyclocross, she soon realised that she also could get a good work out and could join in. Jumping in with both feet, and not having a clue about off-road riding, she was quickly hooked. She can be found out riding the local roads training day in day out, or at local and national cyclocross races as a rider for Magspeed Racing or pit crew for now speedy, expert 'children'.
Setting up grity has been the most enormous and unexpected fun. It has always been a dream which never seemed possible and she can't really believe that designs have been turned into reality. Being able to make a small difference to our global environment on the way is the icing on the cake!
