She recently retired after 12 yrs as Chef d’Equipe of the England home international endurance squad.
Maggie has ridden, crewed and trained at international level and with her passion for fitness and individuality, Maggie is the ideal person to help you whether you’re a newcomer, a happy hacker or top competitor.
