Katherine & Neil Swithenbank have bought their racing experience and 2 boys Luke & Dan to the club. Katherine says ” I’ve been raised on a bike from before I can remember, watching my mum race and touring on tandems as a family. I started racing as a 14 year old school girl and managed to win a few national events as an under 16 and junior. I’ve always loved cycling with a club and I’m keen to encourage my 2 young boys to have fun on their bikes too! They have learnt so much and made great friends through the 360Bullets and I’m keen to help other kids to also have these opportunities “.

Neil loves being involved too, helping out with maintenance on the clubs bikes as well as attending sessions with their boys.
