Mountain Biking on Exmoor

Dan - Director

Mountain Biking is definitely Dan's main passion, though he will be found delivering all the activities on offer. As much as Dan would like to be out delivering activities, he has to spend more and more time on administrative duties!

Ben - Chief Instructor

Ben is a super keen Surfer and paddleboarder, having paddled around Menorca last year! You're likely to meet Ben, as he heads up most of our activity days and events.

Joe - Instructor

Joe is an avid Mountain Biker and keen White Water Kayaker. Originally from Exmoor, Joe is currently based in the Lake District where he is studying for an Outdoor Degree!
