John Brewer

John Brewer has lived and worked in the Scottish Borders for over 20 years. He has a passion for mountains and remote places, and has walked and climbed in many of the major European ranges and also in North Africa and the Canadian Rockies and Pacific Northwest of the USA.

Seeing the potential of modern mountain bikes to access more remote places and efficiently over long distances, John created the www.bikeroutes.org.uk website, in which he sets out to describe and map cycle routes in southeast Scotland and northeast England. The routes range from the more leisurely to the more demanding, and, in fact, this guide grew out of his search for more offbeat trails in the area.
