Mini Bio

I love the UK’s wild places and cycling through them. When I’m not on my bike I also enjoy sea kayaking and hill walking. After over a decade of leading overseas expeditions to Asia, Africa and Latin America combined with teaching Geography, I’ve become about as settled down as a tour guide can ever be, living in the UK, although still like to venture overseas. I guided a sensory impairment charity trek to Kilimanjaro in June 2014.

Working for the Wilderness group has given me the opportunity to share the outstanding natural beauty of a world-class destination. The landscape and culture is unsurpassed. If I had to choose a favourite trip it would be quite difficult as it’s always a privilege to experience any journey in our remote surroundings with amicable, like-minded people.

Place to Play

Biking in the far north. Empty roads and wild trails.

Not a lot of people know this

I was the first person from Scotland to complete the ‘Tour Divide’, a 2745-mile long mountain bike race from Canada to Mexico.

Biggest Adventure Read More

In 2011 I biked the ‘Tour Divide’, a 2750 mile race from Banff, Canada to the Mexican border along the USA Continental Divide. This was my biggest physical adventure. My most rewarding adventure was helping to guide a friend who was both deaf and visually impaired up to the summit of Kilimanjaro in 2014.
