Annie Davis

She is currently working on her Level 3 MTB portfolio. She was born into a cycling family in the Cotswolds and started racing at the age of ten and has enjoyed competing in road, TT and cross country MTB.

She turned to coaching as injury has prevented her from racing and she enjoys seeing others develop in the sport that she loves.

Helen Hill

Helen is also a Level 2 coach. She has cycled all her life but only joined Thanet RC in January 2013 following the death of her husband because her two young sons were keen to get involved in competitive cycling.

Helen said "I had always been a mountain biker but a few years ago friends encouraged me to get a road bike. Since then I have completed a number of cycling challenges including riding from London to Paris for Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research. I am keen to share my love of this sport with others and especially like encouraging the girls to get involved."

As a result of encouraging his own children to participate in the sport Steve joined our club and completed his Level 2 course in 2012 to help with our Go Ride session and race events. Steve is passionate about the sport in all forms, he even makes up the numbers in occasional races.
