The Mountain Bike Adventure was created in 2005 from a passion for mountain biking, a combination of 20 years experience in the Algarve and a background of mountain bike racing in the UK.
Jim used to ride for Stan Jones Cycles RT and then Pearce Cycles RT, competing in national and local races all over the UK.

He also worked with local councils to build jumps sites for locals to use, some of which are still in use today. Before setting up the company he qualified as a MIAS mountain bike instructor, he runs the skills courses and guides customers.

He is often found hiding behind bushes with a camera on uplift days taking amazing photos, if you want anything filming, this is your man. He has also
