Mountainposture

Wordsmith

I'm Hannah. I have a background in language and history, trying to get things to fit together and make some sort of story. I like bikes and rocks and coffee,  cheese and words and bobbly bits of landscape. Sometimes it all comes together.


I write mostly about bike rides and the landscape through which we ride. You'll find me on a hillside somewhere waving my arms at something exciting.

 

Current projects

It's all about the Pennines: there's going to be a new guidebook for the Pennine Bridleway appearing in May 2021. Thanks Covid for constantly adjusting the deadline. Pre-order it here: PBW book

Plus a guide to the Great North Trail which runs from Middleton Top in the Peak to either Cape Wrath or John O'Groats. 800 miles of ever-changing landscape and history.

There might just be the odd article for Cranked magazine popping up, too.

The blog will, eventually, have snippets of hopefully interesting stuff as I do the research but that won't make it into a guide book less than 17 volumes.
