"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
"I’ve ridden several bike tours, Getting the balance right for a guide is not easy, especially in groups with different abilities and expectations. I cannot imagine meeting anybody with a better combination of cycling savvy, charisma and thoughtfulness than Gav, resulting in the perfect balance of thrills and safety, and very happy bikers."
"I must just say that Gavin McDonald, our road leader, was in no small part the reason this was such a great trip. His organisation skills were only bettered by his ability on a bike. I hope to join him again in the future on another adventure".
