Testimonials

"Your guidance and expertise from the pre-planning process right through to the final day of the Matt Baker Rickshaw challenge for Children in Need was absolutely vital to its success."
Gareth Hydes, Head of Editorial, BBC Children in Need

"It was a genuine pleasure to work with Gav on our Coast to Coast Cycle. As a guide he was extremely supportive of our riders and he was that 'extra special' touch that leaves our participants with a fantastic sense of achievement and great memories. We look forward to many more rides with you, thank you".
Jock Wright, Events Director, GB Charity Events

"Gav McDonald has been my mountain bike guide on trips both in Nepal and in the UK. What a great guide, the route planning was excellent with an appropriate level of challenge and interest to the level of his clients. He is very experienced both as a cyclist and traveller and a great guy to ride with. I wish him every success with his new venture".
Paul McCormack
