Cycle Wild Scotland is now into its twelfth successful year as the popularity of mountain biking continues to grow worldwide. The driving force behind the company is Jules Fincham.
Jules, who is the director and head tutor of Cycle Wild Scotland, is one of the top MTB coaches in the UK. Known as the coaches’ coach, he is passionate about passing on leadership, coaching and biking skills to new generations of bikers.
A tutor with British and Scottish Cycling, he has been closely involved in the creation of the new British Cycling UKMBL awards, the gold standard in mtb leader qualifications.
In addition to training and assessing mtb guides and instructors, Jules regularly guides trips and runs courses around the world. As a founding member and Head Coach of the Wolfpax MTB Club he is more than a little proud that the club has helped foster the talent of a new generation of top mountain bike racers.
Jules is also a tutor for Cycling Scotland, a Scottish Government initiative to encourage biking in all its forms, including Bikeability Scotland and GO MTB, a 5-level proficiency awards system for mountain bikers.
With his experience of all aspects of coaching, management and development, Jules is also much in demand as an advisor on biking for public and private sector organisations.
Lisa is the desk jockey and occasional caterer of the business but she’s happy to advise on the different courses and also on practical matters for your trip. As long as things don’t get too technical she should be able to help you with any questions or concerns you might have about the different awards and the courses we run. As Keeper of Jules’s Diary, she can also help with logistics and programming.
