"It's all about the ride. The location and views are first and foremost in my rides, however the fun and thrill of the ride itself is not to be forgotten and plays a big role in the rides I plan and guide. I want you to feel challanged and finish each ride feeling like you have achieved something, be it on a visual or physical level.
For groups, I find it very important to keep the group together as it makes it easier for everyone to get through the ride. Otherwise you have the strong riders riding fast, then stopping, and the slower riders struggling twice as much because they are riding into the wind all alone half of the day. There's also a lot more camaraderie when everyone is together, chatting and joking."

Off the Bike
"Cycling has enabled me to travel, and that is one of my biggest passions aside from cycling. I love to observe things, lifestyles, places and people. I'm a fairly active person and enjoy a bit of running in adition to the expected cycling, mountain biking etc. In my late teens I was also a climbing instructor."
