Welcome to my little corner of the internet.

So the guy over on the right - that's me. Behind me is my (current) trusty steed that drags me up and down hills, through fields, mud, gravel trails, country roads, and bounces straight back up when I fall off on descents.

I haven't ridden around the world, I haven't crossed continents, I haven't raced in well renowned gravel races. I am a father of 2 crazy little guys who likes to ride his bike, explore Scotland, and spend the occasional night wild camping in the middle of nowhere.


This website is here to share my adventures, my reviews on the products and items I take with me, and over time it will be used to document my future adventures with my two boys. Those future adventures with my boys are something I look forward to greatly!

I have a YouTube channel that has all of my adventures and product reviews on so if that's something that interests you or could help you out the click here and you can subscribe below.
