Early life and amateur career
Born in Tunbridge Wells, Kent. Barnes grew up in Bladon, Oxfordshire and later moved to Towcester, Northamptonshire. Barnes began cycling with Milton Keynes based Team Keyne at the age of 10, before joining Palmer Park Velo in Reading after she was spotted and invited to join British Cycling's Talent Team. Barnes was the under 14 omnium National Champion, notably a title held the previous year by Laura Trott, and the following year by Lucy Garner. A handful of national titles followed as an under 16 rider on the track, and again as a junior, when she also added the junior British National Time Trial Championships to her palmarès. As a junior rider, she also won the senior women's British National Circuit Race Championships in 2010 and 2011.
Barnes represented England at the 2011 Commonwealth Youth Games, held on the Isle of Man. In 2012, she rode for the UCI Women's Team Team Ibis Cycles.
On 8 June 2013, Barnes won the Elite Women's Criterium at the 7th edition of the IG London Nocturne. Originally she had been demoted to second place, behind Laura Trott, for her victory celebration which was considered to be "dangerous riding" but this decision was later reversed.
In November 2013 it was announced that Barnes would be racing for the new UnitedHealthcare women's cycling team in 2014. In November 2015 she was announced as part of the Canyon-SRAM team's inaugural squad for the 2016 season.
