Penny Barker riding her bike

Penny Barker


I love being outdoors and being active. Although I’ve a background in team sport, over the last 15 years I’ve moved from marathons to ultramarathons, Ironman triathlons and most recently ultracycling. Last year I finished the Race Across the West, 928miles from California to Colorado in 90 hours. In June this year I will be tackling what is considered to be one of the toughest cycle races in the world, Race Across America; 3069 miles coast-to-coast across the USA in 12 days. I’m a vet by profession but my self-development journey through sport has led me to become increasingly fascinated by the power of the mind and how we communicate. I’m now a coach working with people, teams and organisations to understand and master the power of both the mind and language for performance.

There is a phrase I try to live by:

"Be present, be curious, be quiet – this applies to whatever I’m doing and whoever I’m with. Try it and see how powerful it can be."
