My name is Neil and I'm the shy, reluctant Chair of TVTA and Deputy Manger of Alpine bikes Glentress.
A committed mountain biker, I've ridden in the area since I took up the sport ten years ago and fell in love with the Tweed Valley so much I moved to Innerleithen four years back to have the riding on my doorstep. When not at work in the bike shop, I spend much of my free time either riding and falling off the local wild trails or up in the woods doing things we can't write about here for the time being (use your imagination;).
My goal for the TVTA is to create a vehicle to sustain and improve the amazing network of trails we have here now, grow it in future and to one day be able to walk up into the woods with a group of riders and mattocks in broad daylight.
I'll see you out on the trail, in the shop or at one of our meetings. Look out for the grubby one covered in dirt or grease.
