Jon has been riding mountain bikes since the 1980s, is a self-confessed mud aficionado, loves big, high-mountain rides and eating cake. He’s ridden solo from Arctic Alaska to Mexico following the Rockies, wild camped in bear and mountain lion country, and bikepacked the length of the Moroccan High Atlas, Colorado, in the remote, tussocky mountains of Wales more times than he can count, and across Scotland. He’s a fan of big skies, gear, tricksy, trialsy riding, seeking out unknown routes and general bike-related hoonery with his mates.
