Chris Gibbs is a career mountain bike guide in Scotland, and he is the person who will make your Highland adventure

Chris Gibbs’ first bike was obnoxiously bright, had neon flashes and was very noisy, a lot like most of his bikes since! He was originally a soundtrack writer and composer who went to Japan in search of adventure. Instead he fell in love with the mountains, which led to instructing across Europe and Asia.

“I found my way back to the UK, eventually to Scotland, and have been lucky to be part of many expeditions here. I love the trails, scenery and even the weather! I’m probably known for wearing short sleeves even if it’s in the minus degrees outside! My bike has led me to many great adventures and friends, and I’m looking forward to many more.”
