The number 1 mountain bike guides in Scotland
Meet your team of local mountain bike guides in Scotland
We have an incredible team of expert local mountain bike guides in Scotland, who are all hugely passionate about sharing the trails, history, culture, and landscapes of their home, here in the beautiful Scottish Highlands.
Our guides hail from all over the Highlands, from the Cairngorms National Park, to Fort William, to the wild west coast. They come from a host of diverse backgrounds, but what they all have in common is their love of mountain biking, the Highlands, and sharing all this with like-minded adventurers from around the globe.
Here’s your chance to meet your mountain bike guides in Scotland, before coming to share with them their favourite trails!
Emma Holgate is the newest member of the H+I Adventures team in Scotland, bringing with her a wealth of guiding experience in the UK and elsewhere in Europe, and immense mountain biking skills. Emma was also a police officer for many years, so her people skills and patience are second-to-none.
Kevin Henderson is our resident poet and artist and, after a big day on the bike on the coast-to-coast or Cairngorms Adventure, Kevin can often be seen in a comfortable chair with a wee dram in his hand, reciting poetry from Scottish and international authors to a rapt audience. Kevin is always a very calming influence on an adventure and has been part of the team for several years now.
Chris Gibbs, or ‘The Bear’ as he’s often referred to, has a special talent for coaching as well as guiding. He really enjoys giving skills advice on the trails, helping you to make the most of your adventure in the Highlands, and to go home a better, more confident mountain biker. Chris also has a fondness for very colourful and…unusual… bike wear!
Alex Glasgow is our resident race-head, with a selection of impressive results under his belt in cross-country racing and triathlon. Alex has been part of the H+I Adventures team from the beginning and he loves nothing more than guiding a group of fit riders across the Highlands on our coast-to-coast adventure. Getting him to stop is the tricky part.
Jonathan Baldwin (‘Jono’) has switched from feeding 5,000 soldiers in Afghanistan every day, to living his dream to work in the outdoors as a mountain bike guide in the Cairngorms. Jono’s career in the army means that he isn’t easily flustered, which is always a good thing for mountain bike guides in Scotland!
Mark Clark spends most of his waking hours riding his bike round his local trails in Fort William – which means he’s a very skilled mountain biker! Mark also has a degree in adventure tourism and, in addition to pulling some impressive bike moves, he can also pull out some really interesting, little-known facts about the Highlands.
Ross Dunn was born and has lived his whole life in the beautiful Cairngorms National Park, where his love of mountain biking has developed into a passion. After his bike, Ross’ second love is his Landrover Defender, which he has been painstakingly restoring for some years now.
Steve Bradley’s love of two wheels started with motorbike racing, which he got pretty good at! It was his daughter who first introduced Steve to the joys of mountain biking and now he can usually be found riding or building trails, and organising races in his local woods around Fort William.
