Significant Others

Behind every endeavour lies a great support team and in my case, the following deserve a special mention

Philip Smith, Paul Dean and the rest of the team, ASSOS LDN

For ensuring I have the very best clothing available for long and challenging rides.


Phil Deeker

Who conceived and runs the Cent Cols Challenge events and who opened my eyes to what might be feasible, with a bit of planning, effort, support and luck.


Jimi & Janine, Two Tyred Tours

For turning my dreams of climbs, maps and guidebooks into epic reality. Bespoke cycling, par excellence.


Jonny Bell, Noble Wheels

For building amazing hoops, fit for any adventure you can dream up. Best wheel builder in the UK today? Quite possibly.


Phil Cavell, CycleFit

For his attention to detail on bike and pedal set up. 

Pat, Alessio & Steve, Bespoke Cycling

For building my dream bikes and making sure they’re always ready for the next adventure.

David Alexander, Specialized UK

for his assistance with bikes and for constantly reminding me of The Rules.

Jake Lines, Beyond Co.

For his help and maintenance of this site.
