MEET WARREN & ESTHER
If you have ever stood next to either of us at a party,
... you will already know we are nuts about bikes. If you share the love, let us show you the quiet roads of Scotland's hidden gem.
For more than 20 years now we have been doing increasingly ambitious things on bicycles. We started with short tours on unsuitable bikes and dressed like tramps. We made every possible mistake, but still had fun.
Now, we have a shed full of bikes from the exotic to the practical and have done well over 100,000 miles. We have ridden short and appallingly fast sportives, numbingly long endurance events and a 4 year trip twice around the world on loaded touring bikes.
It's now time to pass on the passion. We love the place where we live, its people, landscape and wildlife and we know where to get the best coffee and cake and which way the wind blows.

We still write about our bike trips and adventures. It is actually a good discipline to have and makes you get out on two wheels and carry a camera. It gives you a reason to stop and look. Take a look HERE at the Sportswool Diaries
One of the world's leading cycling websites, the washingmashinepost, did an interview with us about why we moved to Galloway and why we love cycling the quiet roads in Scotland's south west. You can read that HERE
The BBC Radio Scotland - Out of Doors visited us in Spring 2019. We invited them to meet people and businesses we are working with and are inspired by. This wonderful program about the Dark Sky, Belted Galloways, Ethical Dairy (Cream O’ Galloway), the willow artist Trevor Leat and MUCH more, is available as a downloadable podcast: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p074q3hl . Enjoy.
