Jake Cole and Phil Siddall. Both 51, in fact we were both born in the same hospital room! We met in nursery school and have been egging each other on into various shenanigans ever since. We both hail from Bristol where I (Jake) still live and run a tree surgery business, I’m single and I have two sons in their early twenties. Phil’s married and has a daughter and is now in procurement after having spent several years working in the Oil Industry in the Libya and Texas before returning to the UK and basing himself in Manchester. Our earliest riding experience goes back to trying to wheely a mate’s mum’s Puch Maxi in the seventies, graduating to Yamaha Fizzers and DT175’s followed by ﬂirtations with various Enduro and sports bikes before coming back to adventure bikes.
