Simon Weir, Editor

RiDE's editor started riding bikes at 15. As soon as he passed his test at 17, he started touring (in Wales, initially). He's been a journalist for 25 years and has been working on motorcycling magazines for more than half that time. He's a RoSPA qualified advanced riding instructor and has written two books of bike routes for the AA, based on stories from RiDE. His favourite place to ride a bike is the Alps.
