Combing a passion for forestry and a passion for cycling.  Initially working with the Silvanus Trust and the Forestry Commission, 1SW became a community interest company building and developing off-road cycling infrastructure across the South West.  Initial work, funded by the FC and Sport England undertook market analysis of the potential for off-road cycling and concluded that the potential user group amongst leisure and infrequent cyclists was extremely large.

From this £4.6million of  funding was obtained to build 5 cycle centres and 60km of cycle trail across South West England in a mixture of public and private forest with the aim of encouraging more people out cycling in a safe traffic-free woodland setting whilst also bringing in income for the forest owners.
