Hi my name is josh! I’m 15 years old, and I am a volunteer for Pedal 2 Pedal. I came to P2P around October (2015) and help the kids out with the: training, skills and trail rides.
I’m currently taking my GCSE’s, and on the side I’m doing a BTEC level one in sports leadership. Part of this is to do a volunteering role; to help you build confidence and skills as a leader, I got in touch with Hannah and have had a rad time teaching since!
Riding with everyone is a pleasure, and I fully intend to carry on my position, after the qualification is finished and I’ve completed my DofE course as well!
I ride a Whyte T129s xc bike, and am currently building up a vintage singlespeed road bike from scratch, an epiphany hit me, and I’ve felt the urge to throw down the comfort of suspension and don roadie gear: who knows where it may lead. I’m planning within the next few months to cycle with my friend down to Cornwall and go surfing for a few days. I have no race experience and riding with everyone has made me realise what I’m missing out on, so I plan to enter an xc series next season.
I highly recommend at least trying a P2P course as we are a friendly bunch and always looking for new friends to join, look forward to seeing you soon!
See you on the trails, Josh J
