An ex-tree surgeon and near life-long motorcyclist who cut his teeth, pre-teens, on a motley selection of sometimes scary field bikes. Trained to advanced level and as an IAM Observer (though not active these days), I have 43 years of on-road experience and much to learn. I’ve travelled the UK and Ireland widely but have little experience abroad on a bike and am not too familiar with riding on the ‘wrong’ side of the road. I'm hopeful that, once we can be rid of Covid-19 restrictions, MyRoute will play a part in changing that. I’m currently discovering MRA by working on a route through France and northern Spain.
