“Tom’s guiding resonates with me as he displays a genuine respect for the localities he guides in and a care for those in his group” Julian White, Chippenham
Mountains and mountain biking are a way of life for Tom, who is a self-confessed bike geek, map geek and lover of wild places. He is probably best-known as a guidebook writer and the man behind mbr magazine’s pull-out route guides, but his passion and infectious enthusiasm have also made him a much sought after guide and instructor.
Our chef Jo, is probably the most important member of the team on our weekend breaks. But she’s not completely tied to the kitchen and usually manages to get out for a walk in the hills between cooking duties. Once a full-time chef, running her own acclaimed veggie kitchen, she loves making fresh food from scratch, and is a big fan of freshly baked cakes! (Baking and eating them!).
Steph comes from a cycling family and has probably travelled more miles in her life by bike than by car. Yet she still lost none of her enthusiasm for the sport and still wears a huge smile most of the time she’s in the saddle. She’s one of those rare individuals that enjoys the ups as much as the downs.
We’re not sure where we’d be without our driver, Graham, who definitely keeps things together when we are on long tours. His skills reversing a trailer are almost legendary, and he pulls a mean wheelie too (on his bike!).
