Me in 3 – Thoughtful | Determined | Hot Chocolate (that’s probably 4 but I can’t live without it!)

Place to Play – The Dingle Peninsula – incredible views, amazing history, and some of the best food and drink you’ll find in Ireland.

Not a lot of people know this – I once beat 5-time Olympic Gold Medalist Sir Steve Redgrave. It was at Noughts & Crosses but they all count.

Mini Bio – Back in 2001, I gave up a career as a surveyor and co-founded Wilderness Scotland. Everyone thought we were mad at the time and they were probably right. We were, however, determined and incredibly enthusiastic to share our passion for wild places. Having cut our teeth in Scotland we joined up with an amazing team to make Ireland happen. I’m proud to be part of an amazing group of individuals who are committed to providing the very best adventure experiences possible and supporting the environments and communities where we work. While mostly based in the office now, I still get out a handful of times each year to guide some of our trips, including road cycling which is my activity of choice. Ireland is just perfect for exploring by bike -whether it’s the challenge of riding end to end or slowing right down and experiencing the country at a relaxing pace.

Crossing the pass at the top of the secret glen.Through the hard section the team saddles up for the steep descent.Simon heading for the east coast.Contemplating the way ahead through the amazing rock scenery of the Quirang.Challenging riding on the technical singletrack with strong winds and heavy showers.Luskentyre beach - superb even on a bad weather day.Day 3 and over the sea to Skye. The Quirang drainage bars claim their first victim.Looking west over Taransay.An evening trip to the beach followed. Nick cooks up some of Ireland's finest.The new Eagle Observatory on North Harris - probably the best place in the British Isles to see Golden Eagles.Patrick 'out there' on the final descent into Glen Miabhaig.Looking back up to the pass, still 2km of descent to go.A heavy squall comes through on the summit.On the descent and the sun makes a welcome appearance. 3km of Hebridean magic to the floor of the glen.A combination of riding and pushing leads us to the top of the pass and a fantastic descent.Deep in the wilderness and the only way is up.On the other side, looking south to the Harris hills.Nick crossing the river, just before the friendly fire started.A good spot for lunch - not sure about the French-Scottish twist in the packed lunch though. Who packed the onion?!On one of Harris' ancient routes at the start of the mountain loop.A superb switch-back descent takes us from the pass to the river crossing.30 mins of solid climbing and Simon finds some grouse at the pass.
