I started my 16-year filming career by filming downhill mountain biking, so it was a great pleasure to get back to my roots and do some mountain bike filming at the Birks of Aberfeldy on Monday. You’ll be glad to know that I was working for Glen Lyon Coffee Roasters and filming the very talented Lewis Summers, and not filming myself (although there will be plenty of that in future weeks). Lewis is seriously talented and a native of Aberfeldy. In fact, he put in most of the mtb tracks around Aberfeldy.
