Meet: Peter Stewart

Peter Stewart, (Hawain Ironman Triathlete) first came to Nepal in 1995, and was immediately drawn to the Himalayan Mountain Bike (Tours & Expeditions), given his keen interest in all things outdoors and biking. Formed in 1988, HMB - based in Kathmandu - was the first outfit in Asia dedicated to mountain biking, and pioneered this adventure activity in Nepal and the Himalayas. Peter got involved with the HMB team as manager, and with his enthusiasm and guidance, the sport gained popularity among the mountain folk, expatriates and visiting international biking enthusiasts. Numerous HMB mountain bike championships were run creating many local heroes, and resulting in a National Geographic feature ("Himalayan Encounters"). Upon purchasing the business, Peter expanded HMB's tours to Bhutan, Mongolia, Tibet, India, Thailand and Sri Lanka, and has pioneered many trails across these exotic countrysides.Now back home in Melbourne (Australia), Peter still travels regularly to the Subcontinent. Since his first visit to these parts, he has seen the sport grow - both in participation and in popularity - with every passing year. Today, he says, mountain biking has become a tradition in Nepal as well as in India, adding that the Nepalese have proved themselves to be particularly adept bikers.

"What is adventure? If a lone wolf lifts his plaintive call into the moonlight near your campsite, you might call that adventure. While you're sweating like a horse on a climb over a 12,000 foot pass, that could be adventure. When howling head winds press your lips against your teeth, you face a mighty struggle. When your pack grows heavy on your shoulders as your climb a 14,000 foot peak, you feel the adventure. When you suffer freezing temperatures and 20 inches of fresh powder on a hut to hut trip in the Rockies, that could be called adventure. But that's not what makes an adventure. It's your willingness to conquer it, and to present yourself at the doorstep of nature. That creates the experience. No more greater joy can come from life than to live inside a moment of adventure. It is the uncommon wilderness experience that gives your life expectation?" - Frosty Wooldridge, Colorado. How much better could it said....its not about doing it tough, but its about being out there an submersed in the experience..... hope to share some time with you. Happy Trails / Peter .
