Once Dickinson tried cycling, she was soon hooked, competing in grass track leagues before joining her first club, Border City Wheelers, before then moving to Beacon Wheelers in Penrith.
She was selected for the then British Cycling Olympic Talent Team as a 14-year-old and won silver in the junior scratch race at the 2015 Junior and Under-23 Track European Championships in Athens.
Later that year, Dickinson was part of the junior women’s squad at the UCI Road World Championships in Richmond, Virginia, USA - finishing 39th after a strong performance attempting to deliver Grace Garner to a medal finish - with her teammate just missing out on the podium positions.
Dickinson won bronze in the junior team pursuit at the 2016 Junior and Under-23 Track European Championships in Aigle alongside Lauren Dolan, Becky Raybould and Jessica Roberts.
Months later, Dickinson earned her first call-up to the senior Great Britain Cycling Team squad for the opening round of the 2016/17 UCI Track Cycling World Cup - winning gold in the team pursuit alongside Manon Lloyd, Emily Nelson and Emily Kay in the home round in Glasgow.
If 2016 was successful for Dickinson, then 2017 proved even better.
The Carlisle rider earned her first selection for the UCI Track Cycling World Championships, part of the British quartet that finished fifth in the team pursuit before taking 12th place in the individual pursuit.
Dickinson returned to the UEC Junior and Under-23 Track European Championships, riding as an under-23 athlete for the first time - and reached the podium on four occasions in Portugal.
She won a trio of silver medals in the scratch race, individual pursuit and omnium before striking gold alongside Manon Lloyd in the Madison.
Those performances saw Dickinson selected for the senior European championships for the first time in her career and she earned a silver medal in the team pursuit in Berlin, having ridden in the qualifying rounds.
She then became a senior European champion for the first time in her career - winning the Madison alongside Elinor Barker.
Dickinson then ended her 2017 with two medals at the third round of the 2017/18 UCI Track Cycling World Cup in Milton, Canada.
She won bronze in the omnium - her first individual medal on the elite international stage - before claiming another Madison gold, this time alongside Katie Archibald.
Her good form continued as Dickinson was selected for her second UCI Track Cycling World Championships - winning her first ever world championships medal as part of a five-woman team pursuit squad alongside Barker, Archibald, Nelson and Laura Kenny.
