Barnes enjoyed success at the UK School Games in Sheffield in 2011, where she not only won the individual mountain bike event, but also rode solo in the relay, beating the fastest of the four-rider teams by several seconds.[5] She joined the British Cycling Olympic Academy Programme in 2013.[6] Barnes was selected for the England team for the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, where she finished fifth in the mountain bike race.[7] She also rode at the 2014 UCI Road World Championships.

She finished second to Lizzie Armitstead in the elite women's race at the 2015 British National Road Race Championships in Lincoln, becoming national under-23 champion in the process.[8] Later that year she was part of the Great Britain team that helped to deliver Armitstead to the World Championship elite road race title in Richmond, Virginia.[9] On the road Barnes won the opening event of the Tour Series in Redditch.[10] Racing in the 2017 National Women's Road Series, she won the Lincoln Grand Prix.[11]
