I decided to do something out of my comfort zone, whilst doing something active and exploring some incredible scenery. Mark was instantly welcoming and friendly, everything was organised meticulously and on time! Big ✅ He’s a really interesting guy and incredibly knowledgeable of fitness, diet and nutrition, which we discussed at length during the ride. We covered a fair distance and Mark encouraged me to push past my imaginary fitness level! The E-bike certainly helped with this and assisted in getting up some of the Chiltern hills without the need for an oxygen tank at the top!! We stopped for a delicious lunch at a quirky little barn which was lovely, and then returned for a coffee and a bit of a sugar rush at the end of the ride. I’d describe my fitness levels as fairly moderate, especially where cardio is concerned and the E-bike gave me the confidence to push on and do more, so much so I’m going to meet up with Mark again to test some out to purchase and benefit from his knowledge on what to buy! Right now I’m soaking in a bath of Epsom salts to ease my aching muscles and thoroughly looking forward to joining Mark again on another experience. Times are testing at the moment with the COVID situation and today was just what I needed to pull me out of the pit of despair and self pity! A million thanks Mark, you don’t know quite the difference you made today!

First time on an E-bike

Seventeen seasoned cyclist of varied ability set out to conquer the Pyrenees. Biarritz to Perpignan in 5 days, 424 miles and 49,000ft of climbing – it was a real challenge for the riders but a huge challenge and responsibility for Mark too. His support was epic, his stories the stuff of legend and the man can cycle a bit too! Humour, patience, camaraderie and his shaved legs combine with a real understanding of what it takes to safely manage a cycling tour whilst enabling those involved to give their best and learn from him and the experience generally. An amazing trip and we raised £19,000 for 3 worthy charities. What more could you want – highly recommended.

I’ve ridden with Mark for about 8 years – as well as being super-fit, he is what I call a ‘no-nonsense’ rider; come rain or shine, uphill or down, he just gets the miles done, no dramas.  Wherever he rides he seeks out the best routes – he knows The Chilterns and surrounding areas like the back of his hand. He takes his riding serious but always retains a sense of humour and is a lot of fun at the coffee stop – but watch out he doesn’t steal your cake!

I have known Mark for 15 years approximately and we have ridden together often also doing a trip to ride the Milan-San Remo event.
Mark is a great guy and very knowledgeable about the passion of cycling.
I thoroughly recommended Mark to be your first choice for your event wherever it may be to organise and support you.

I have ridden with Mark for over 10 years. In the UK and Europe. Over that time he has always been impeccably turned out on his bike. Immaculate matching kit and spotless well maintained bikes. Mark knows all the roads in the local Chiltern hills and often leads us to climbs we didn’t even know existed. Mark tells me he rides 250 miles a week and I can well believe that is true, given his fitness level and dedication to the sport above all else. He is one of the most organised and thoughtful people I have ever met, never riding off the front of a bunch, always handy if there is a mechanical problem, the first to get the coffee and cakes in and always inclusive when organising rides and trips. Mark is a natural leader yet still a “people person” and I would recommend anyone to try his services.

Really missing the Pyrenees – pretty much everything about it – the camaraderie, the massive test of endurance and will, the feeling of achievement, the views, the beer and last but not least the fantastic support that you gave to our large team Mark – thank you.
You very quickly know if your support team are there to truly support you or not.  You get a feeling in your gut which tells you that if all goes pear-shaped you’ll be in good hands (or not).  When you are taking on your biggest test of endurance of your life in an unfamiliar environment there is enough stuff to worry about.  I did not doubt for one second the support I would get from you Mark and what a total difference it made to the whole experience and allowed me to concentrate on the task at hand – completing the difficult rides we had each day.
