Born and grew up in Wales but now a fully fledged Aussie. A passionate mountain biker, hiker and general nature addict. I'm also a bit of a muso and enjoy a good craft beer every now and again (probably too often).

I hope what we do here at Tyres and Soles will inspire people to get out there and experience first hand, the natural wonders that surround them. So, pump up those tyres, don your favourite boots. Grab a mate, a partner, a pet… and head out into nature. But tell us all about it when you get back.

  • Dreamy loam is hard to beat when it comes to riding surfaces and the Aquila feels right at home digging through it! 💥 #onzatires #loam
  • Check out the full review in our bio 👍. Have you tried merino? Generally, you can get a bit smelly with synthetic fabrics whereas @monsroyale merino handles body odours very well. We experienced zero odours on the trails or in the car on the way home where it usually starts to pong. We felt as fresh as when we first pulled them on. The beauty of this is that you don't need to bring a change of clothing with you. You can hop off the bike and into the local bar or cafe without clearing the place out. | Photo: @richardmcgibbon
  • Fusing function and form, @monsroyale merino clothing is a natural, biodegradable and sustainable fibre that outperforms man-made fabrics. Mons Royale clothing is continually tested and refined to ensure it's the best match for your body and performance. | Photos: @richardmcgibbon
  • Testing the Michelin Wild Enduro tyres. Praise the knobbly gods. 🙌 These things are gripper than spider-man’s palm gunk. @michelinbicycle |  Photo: @richardmcgibbon
