Meet the Ride Leaders

  • James Franklin
    James Franklin I love the outdoors whatever the weather! So what better way to enoy the fresh air than on a bike. I started cycling 5 years ago, mainly to keep fit as I am a fanatical windsurfer. I soon became adicted as it was such fun (especially the cake stops) and a year later did Captial to Coast (Hampton Court to Brighton) followed by L2P (London Paris escorted ride) the year after. I also love heading out into the Surrey Hills on my mountain bike. Our 2 year old loves his bike trips too and his big grins make it so worth it and rewarding. I hope that we can inspire you too to get out there and have some fun!
