About us

About_AshASH – Initiator & Guide of Ride Ibiza

As a young boy I built ramps for my BMX, skateboard and rollerblades. This led to dirt jumping, freeriding, downhill … all on my 150mm Hardtail. Every Sunday my friend and I religiously grabbed our spades and jumped on the train out to the local forests to build trails.

As I got older I experimented with volunteering and teaching. Seeing a lack of affordable bike sales and servicing I opened a bicycle shop in my local town of Dover and sponsored a local rider. I organized a few events and helped a local school receive a new fleet of bikes for school activities.

After a few years I left the bike shop business to find new challenges and being a mountain biker I went where the biking was.
I gained the MBLA qualification and studied outdoor first aid which allowed me to teach a wide range of people from children to army personnel.

Life was good in the south of England, filled with trail construction and maintenance as well as instruction and guiding until a random email offered new opportunities and I found myself in Malaga, Spain. Here I used my experience to give the customers the best MTB holiday possible.

I have successfully taught many absolute beginners to gain confident bike control as well as teaching advanced skills to more experienced riders.

I stumbled into the MTB scene quite late and by coincidence. So far my passion in sports was athletics, gymnastics, jogging, climbing, Tae Kwon Do, weight lift, yoga, dancing.

Through Ash I got to know mountain biking. It combines a lot for me. The freedom to do sports in nature, cardio training, body control, learning new skills, challenges, facing fears, strategy, living in the moment, having a lot of fun, to be proud of mastering a difficult trail and biking is definitely also meditative!

I love to prepare the trails for you or to create new ones. The work in nature is unique, it balances me and makes me just happy 🙂

As a Certified Nutritionist, I am very attached to nature. I am also specialized in sports nutrition. With the right nutrition you can get the last kick out of your body and get into top form.

If desired, I cook for you from breakfast to dinner. According to your needs or suggestions from my side.

Ash has been training me successfully for a year. I already learned a lot from him. MTB women here we come!!
