Through the summer and winter of 2017, Sam and Luke spent most weekends converting the empty shell of a van into a purpose built camper. As keen mountain bikers, it had to be fit for transporting bikes, as well as having some of the amenities to live. Although a small space, various designs and improvements have meant the space has been used efficiently.
Together the team got into mountain biking seriously in around 2015. However before then whilst at school, evenings and weekends would be spent riding over to the local mountain bike park at Hadleigh. This soon had its limits, and the determination to venture further afield took hold! Now with a growing following, new plans to adventure are always happening.
We are @themtbvanlife - Every effort is made to document the travels and adventures with MTBVanLife, as well as the mountain biking. Many photos are taken by the team, but Luke has always had a passion for photography and editing videos. If there is anything you want to see, let us know and we will strive to ensure we bring you the content you want to see!
I currently work within the IT industry and have done since leaving school. I am a keen mountain biker, skier, amateur photographer & traveller. I got into mountain biking seriously back in 2015, and have never looked back. I find myself always eager to find new places to ride and explore. This also means we get to meet new people. I edit a majority of the media for MTBVanLife, including videos which I have a real drive for!
Currently work up London within the IT industry. Started biking while at high school with Luke & Jake. That's where the excitement started! As I moved into riding more often, it was not practical to keep loading bikes onto a car. Therefore I decided to bite the bullet and buy a van to convert. I was inspired by seeing peoples projects and ideas online which made me want to give it a go myself. I am now looking forward to all the new opportunities.
We have been riding Surrey Hills the past few weekends, and the weekend just gone, I decided to bite the bullet and record an intro half way through the day! Forgive us for the mashup of clips but we will start to record more videos soon! Currently riding the new All Mountain 3.5 by Haibike, […]
The NEW ‘All Mountain’ 3.5 from Haibike is a little bit of a beast. Having come from the non e-bike world, we were shocked at the assist this bike can give with its new Bosch Gen 4 motor. Both myself and Sam are now running a 3.5 along side our unassisted mountain bikes. We have […]
The short answer is no. But in those brief seconds where an individual sees you fly up a hill effortlessly, they immediately assume so. However that’s not the whole story. We have recently taken delivery of a brand new Haibike All MTN 3.5, and I took this out for its first test ride just yesterday. […]
We are adventure friends who decided to invest some time and merge two passions, adventuring and mountainbiking. We spent much time converting an empty VW Transporter into a purpose built camper van. We now enjoy part-time Vanlife and enables us to travel further afield with the bikes, but also provide us some alternative accommodation […]
