Hobbies

Hobbies

Since giving up football a few years ago, cycling, walking and the gym are Richard’s main outside interests. A four month break before joining Berwins included an epic cycling trip with his brother in northern India (Himachal Pradesh and the western Himalaya), although these days he is more likely to be found on the hills and country roads of North Yorkshire with like-minded (and similarly aged) cycling converts.
