Your Guide: Trevor
Not planes, nor trains, nor automobiles but boots, boats and bikes. That sums up how I like to get around. And whether it’s a trip to the shops, Shropshire or Samarkand, the journey should be at least as good as the destination!
That’s why I love getting out on Go Tread trips. Taking in the scenery, sharing some stories about the geology, archaeology and history of wherever it is we might find ourselves, sharing some new adventures and making new stories as we wend our way through the landscape.
