Who is

Guide and coach

My name is Andy, and I run BackPedalling.

I have a deep passion for riding my bike in amazing places. I’m a trail womble: finding the wonderful things others have overlooked. I love unearthing new places to ride, particularly close to where I live.

But the thing that I love most is showing that to other people and seeing their reaction to the great places we can get on our bikes. Whether it’s on a mountain bike or on the road, whether it’s on an adventure or the way to work I want you to have the best time you can on a bike.

I get a massive kick out of helping people to feel more confident and more capable on their bikes, because I believe you’ll have more fun when you are confident.

This is why I became a professional guide and coach, and that’s why you can be confident in my skills.
