Scott Swalling

By Alice Peyredieu

Mountain and gravel biker, rock and ice climber.  Sometime skier, prefer off-piste and ski mountaineering (average at both). Ultimately love being outside and doing something fun and exciting.

IT geek in a large firm and always keen to leave that behind once I down tools. Two little ones keep my other half and myself super busy, but fortunately love being in the outdoors.
Love pinning a number on and getting on two wheels and leaving everything out there or the calmness (or at least trying to maintain the calmness) at my limit of rock or ice.
Also, love art, most music good coffee, cake, beer wine and cider, known for a cheeky gin or whisky too and cake. Does that look bad? That probably looks bad!
