meet-the-team

This year we have some new faces on the organising team which will be helping to pull together to bring you the Bradford On Avon Cycling Festival. We feel It’s important that you know who the organisers as over the next few months we will be introducing you to different elements of what’s on and what to expect along with news about sponsors and event updates.

Charlotte Forester

Charlotte is a household face around the town and has been involved in various events over the years from Christmas lights switch on to the BOA Glow Run and notable was the lead organiser in the cycling festival for the last few years. Here is an interesting fact that you probably didn’t know about Charlotte is that in her younger years she was an elite triathlete performing at a high level. She traveled all over competing at major events such as the Ironman 70.3 Monaco, Ironman Nice,  Big Ben Nevis 1/2 Ironman, Scott Adventure racing championships, Xterra Off-road Triathlon series, climbed Mont Blanc and pioneered 2 x unclimbed peaks in Greenland.
