Izzy is the newest addition to the Customer Experience team, and what she doesn’t know about bikes just isn’t worth knowing. She’s as awesome with customers as she is riding, so be sure to look out for her on the north west racing scene. Izzy’s bike geekery and knowledge makes her fit right in to the team, and is a huge contribution to our excellent customer feedback.
If Izzy’s not getting covered in mud herself, she’s helping organise the local cyclocross race series as part of the NWCCA committee. This love for thick brown stuff crosses over to her drinks too, in addition to her passion for coffee, her tea strength is almost a match for Keith’s.
