Jim Bradley Mountain Water Expeditions

I’ve been working in the outdoors for nearly 20 years, but playing for over 30. I can be found doing just about anything……from mountain biking to hill walking to mine exploration or swimming in the sea and lakes of North Wales. Gardening!!

I’ve spent the last 15 years mostly paddling, but recently quite a bit of time on a mountain bike…initially to improve my paddling…but enjoyed it a little too much. Getting back into the hills is a current priority and I’ve started climbing with enthusiasm again. Now I have the tough decision of which activity I shall spend my free-time doing…..sometimes it’s a struggle!!

I am enjoying the varied and rewarding work of spending my time with adults and young people engaging in different challenges on a daily basis!!

Currently I’m very fortunate to be working for a number of outdoor centres, schools and private organisations providing activity sessions.
