About Us

WeLoveMountains is Ed and Marion Shoote.

We wanted to share our adventures by bike and in the mountains all over the world so we created this blog for those looking to do similar trips or just like looking at the pictures! We have ridden over 50+ countries and recent trips have focused on Europe and Asia. We are often invited to speak or write about Central Asia due to our unique experience of riding there.

Ed is a writer and photographer having featured in magazines such as; Cycle Magazine, Singletracks, Wanderlust, Sidetracked, Trek and Mountains, Snow, Active Traveller and many more. Please get in touch about a trip or story that we could work with on;



We know what kit works and what doesn’t because we can be trusted to break stuff that’s not good enough, therefore we also try to review the kit we like. Some kit we buy, some we get from our sponsors for trips. We only approach sponsors that we know we can trust and currently using kit from;

Kinesis Bikes

Apidura – Bikepacking Bags

Findra Clothing

GOREwear apparel

Lezyne – GPS units, pumps and Lights

Lauf – Grit leaf sprung forks
