Shery HoldsworthView Other Tour Managers
A lover of travel and the great outdoors as well as a keen mountain biker Shery joined her local CTC group in 1997. Cycling with others on the regular club rides and taking part in rallies and tours led to arranging cycle camping trips in the UK, Southern Ireland, Switzerland and Northern France, going solo or as a group. She moved to the Lake District in 2002, studied Outdoor Education as a mature student and qualified as a Trail Cycle Leader and Mountain Leader. This enabled her to follow her ambition of helping people of all abilities appreciate and enjoy the outdoor world and she has led groups of blind and partially sighted people in the Lakeland Fells for the past 10 years. She has been a participant on various independent and CTC tours in the UK and worldwide (Thailand, India, Bulgaria, South Africa, USA) and became an assistant leader in 2015. Shery has assisted Brian Curtis on his varied ‘back to basics’ cycle camping trips in Southern Scotland and Cumbria as well as being co-leader of the round island tour in Mallorca. She is looking forward to leading her own tour in the Scottish Borders and the Lake District in May 2020.
