Bikes and Beers: Meet Black Isle Brewery’s Anita Scott
When it comes to combining a love of bikes and beer, Black Isle Brewery’s Anita Scott shows us how it’s done.
As one of our dedicated team at Black Isle Bar in Inverness, when Anita isn’t serving organic, malty goodness by the glass or bottle, she’s most likely making turns on the local bike trails. Having ridden the coveted Highland Trail 550 – a bikepacking event of legendary status – this year Anita has turned her attention to tracks with a downward trajectory.
POC Scottish Enduro Series
Riding as a Black Isle Brewery Team Rider, she’s been travelling the country and testing out her skills at the POC Scottish Enduro Series. Held by event organiser No Fuss, the round of races cover the country and offer up a mix of technical riding. And who-knows-what when it comes to weather! Bike-mad girls and guys battle it out over mud, roots and the inevitable rain, to stake their claim for the podium top step.
As the rain thrashed down after an endless string of sunny days, dust turned to slop for the third round. Riding on her trusty hardtail bike, Anita took on the category alone, and so secured the win – but impressively made it 8th female overall, and 4th in the senior women’s category.
There’s a lot of women at the sharp end of these events, so a huge well done Anita on the result.
