Pedal Planet was inspired by Ray’s desire for more people of all ages and abilities to enjoy Mountain Biking…
Ray has more than 25 years’ experience of trail riding and mountain biking.
His love of bikes started at an early age when he was given a Raleigh Mag Burner BMX for his 6th Christmas. He has been lucky enough to ride his bike far and wide, from Wales / Lake District up North to the Isle of Wight down South! He cycles for pleasure as well as fitness, finding a leisurely cycle with his family just as enjoyable as a blast along a sweet piece of single track! Honest!
Ray’s practical experience and own passion for pedalling is underpinned by all necessary qualifications:-
British Cycling Level 2 MTB Coach & MTB Leader; MIAS Level 2 Mountain Bike Leader; Bikeability Accredited Instructor; Sky Ride Leader Level 1. He is fully insured to run Pedal Planet cycling activities as a member of the British Cycling Federation of Coaches. Ray also has a Wilderness First Responder qualification in 1st Aid. All Pedal Planet routes and activities are risk assessed. Ray has an up to date CRB check (DBS Enhanced Certificate).
