Coming from the flat West Midlands in the UK and somehow getting into mountain biking, most major life decisions thereafter were based around where to best ride bikes.  First Aberystwyth for university (now the Atherton’s local) sandwiching in a guiding season in Whistler in 2009 and then the riding hotspot of Sheffield for a few years. The call of the incredible valley riding of Whistler as well as the bike park made the full time move back to BC inevitable.  When I wanted to resume my guiding career the Team at Arbutus display a level of professionalism and commitment to the local trails and community that drew me to join them.
