ABOUT MAL

I started riding mountain bikes in earnest back in the early 90s as a substitute for surfing.  An avid outdoor adrenaline enthusiast in my youth, I continued to explore the limits of mountain bike riding until I settled down and started a family, 20 years ago.  After turning 40 I rediscovered mountain bike riding as part of my mid-life crisis and have passionately enjoyed riding-off road ever since.

 

As well as being a certified MTBA Level 1 Skills Instructor, I also have a degree in Aeronautical Engineering specialising in rocket engine science and have been among other things a Business Mentor, an Academic Tutor, a Hockey Coach and a Disabled Support Worker.  I utilise my life experiences to create unique learning environments that focus on overcoming mental barriers as well as developing the technical skills to put serious smiles on people’s faces.

With a love of technical skills I am passionate about improving people’s skills and riding abilities to have fun on the trails and smash through any preconceived limitations that riders have of their capabilities.  I am a firm believer that the skills learnt out on the MTB trails translate to not just having fun off-road, but to having a more enjoyable outlook in all aspects of life.

During the working week I head up the operations of a business who's goal is to help the world conserve it's ever dwindling resources and conserve the environment through the use artificial intelligence and industrial machine monitoring to make the world more efficient - so if you need to speak to me you might not be able to get hold of me straight away.  But rest assured that if there's something you want to talk to me about you'll definitely hear from me.
