I was born in a Scottish town called Dunfermline where I grew up and lived 'til I was in my early 20's. I learned to ride a bike from a young age, but I didn't take up cycling or mountain biking as a sport until I was 15.
As soon as I started mountain biking in my teens I fell in love with the adrenaline rush and adventure of being outside. I still love to ride, race, and train, and seek out adventures, challenges, and races that excite me.
As well as mountain biking, I love riding road, gravel, cyclocross, track, and even BMX. If it has two wheels and handlebars then I'm probably going to like it.
