Anne Hed

Anne Hed began her career as a professional triathlete, competing worldwide through the 1980s. Through the sport, she met her late husband, Steve. Together, they shared a vision to create and innovate, to craft some of the fastest, most aerodynamic bike wheels in the world; and in 1984, from Steve’s garage and funded in part by Anne’s race winnings, HED Cycling Products was born.

From competing in the Ironman and the Tour de France to being awarded with several significant patents, HED Cycling is widely regarded as a pioneer in the bike industry.

Today, Anne remains a prominent figure in the sport, as a board member of the PeopleForBikes BPSA Trade Association Committee, and is leading HED in exciting new directions in composite engineering and manufacturing. She is a proud mother to Rebecca and Andrew.
