I was born in Sussex, raised in Ross-on-Wye and now have my permanent home base in Hereford. I come from a cycling background as my Dad was a prolific club rider and still cycles 2-3 times a week even though he is 85!
I raced mountain bikes as a Juvenile and Junior rider with moderate success before going off to University.
In 2004 I returned to Herefordshire and gained a position managing a busy mountain bike trail centre in the Forest Of Dean for 10 years before making the decision to change my career. I am now a pilot for a regional airline based at Inverness and in my spare time, when I'm not back in Hereford, I am either working at the shop or out on my road bike exploring the wonderful countryside.
