Ever since his first MTB (a yellow rigid Specialized Rockhopper) mountain biking has been a huge part of his life. "I have ridden all over the place; French Alps, Dolomites, Greece, Turkey, all over the UK, but I have always come back to Sheffield and the Peaks. Sheffield always has been The Outdoor City, the synergy between urban and natural is what makes it such an amazing place, Mountain Biking is a fantastic way to experience this. The reason I became a coach and guide, and the reason I love what I do, is to get the opportunity to coach people the skills that are the building blocks to enable them to get the most out of their MTB journey and also give more experienced rider the skills to push their limits and experiences".
