Anne Hed is a lifetime resident of Minnesota. Her history as a business owner began back in the 1980’s, when she raced as a professional triathlete. She completed eight Ironman triathlons in Hawaii, and met her late husband, Steve, through the sport. He became one of her first sponsors, making the first modern aerodynamic disc wheel for her. Funded in part by Anne’s race winnings, Hed Cycling was born and did business out of Steve’s garage.
