Ed Hunton grew up in the wilds of North Devon on the edge of Dartmoor and cycling was his main mode of transport. He would set off with Super-c panniers loaded and an OS Landranger stuffed in his rain mac. The unparalleled feeling of freedom his first bike afforded him on his adventures through the web of B-roads and green chutes of the South-West gave him a lifelong passion for cycling. Inspired by a local bike shop owner, John Spur, tours in Italy, Spain, Benelux, France and Cuba followed, with a mixture of campsites, wild camping and pensions being his preferred accommodation. A keen member of Audax, Ed has also completed the Trans Alba (an 800-mile circuit of Scotland), taken part in Bare Bones events and ridden countless sportives. For him, few experiences can match setting up camp in a remote part of the landscape, getting a brew on and contemplating the heavens from the comfort of his hammock.
