Adam was born in the UK in a town called Witney in Oxfordshire. When he was six years old, Adam’s parents bought a beautiful old farmhouse in Dordogne, France. He loved growing up on the farm because it gave him the space to be adventurous. Some of his fondest childhood memories were spent cycling around the countryside with his dad, who is a keen cyclist and is responsible for sparking Adam’s love for bikes.

For the love of surfing, Adam moved to the west coast of Ireland to brew Belgium-style beer and ended up falling in love with the culture and local people. From Ireland, he traveled to Norway, Australia, and New Zealand where he live for four years, and worked as a joiner building bespoke furniture and eco straw bale homes. In his free time, he invested his energy into mountain biking, skiing, and multi-day bike trips, which were the perfect ways to see the country. Adam’s time in New Zealand led him to make some of his closest friendships and most unforgettable memories.
