I have been an outdoor enthusiast for 35 years, starting out rock climbing and mountaineering. I discovered mountain biking 30 years ago and have been on one ever since. I do venture onto road for training and have entered a few triathlons including the Big Ben Tri. I am passionate about leaving no trace and respecting the places I visit and travel through for future generations to enjoy.
I moved to Aviemore 2 years ago from the central belt of Scotland and often wonder why I didn’t do it years ago. The opportunities for doorstep adventures and micro adventure are endless.
Too many to mention but exploring Cairngorms by bike and the single track at Badaguish.
I was born in the QEII ….. the name of the hospital in Welwyn Garden City so yes I am English.
