About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To meet new & interesting people with optimistic outlooks on life.

ABOUT ME

An active person always looking to try new experiences (within reason), well motivated & loves being creative.

I have flown gliders solo, rock climbed & abseiled, raced mountain bikes all around the UK with some high results. Hiked a number of mountains in England, Scotland & Wales including the highest in each.

Aims for the future are to improve my Engineering academic qualifications.

I have a list of 30 things I wish to achieve before I'm 30 on my website, pricycles.co.uk

PHILOSOPHY

To get the most out of life & gaining as many experiences (good or bad) on the way.

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Music, Movies, and Books

I like a wide variety of music & love watching films, always got a book of some sort on the go too!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I guess there's a few to many possibilities to contend for the one thing. Some of the places I've ridden bikes rate highly... but its the small things that count, right!?
In September 2010 I cycled the length of the UK twice covering 1825 miles & am still getting to grips with the achievement & raising over £1000 for charity.

Teach, Learn, Share

Can share practical knowledge of how to make things & repair them. I was a bike mechanic for three years & have machined & fabricated things for even longer. Not great with electronics & get by with computers but keen to learn

I am currently learning to play the guitar so any pointers would be helpful!

Countries I’ve Visited

Belgium, France, Germany, Iceland, Switzerland

United Kingdom
