Allan Ladbrook

Andrea Ladbrook

Andrea will be one of your main point of contact during the consultation and booking stages of planning your adventure. And for those opting for semi-guided and personalised tours, Andrea will most likely be your tour guide! Of course she tries to contain her excitement at the prospected of going riding – just in case one of the boys decide it is their turn! Andrea has been riding since she was 15-years old; when to her horror her father would only allow her to ride a scooter, but later when Allan and Andrea met, Allan encouraged Andrea to progress to a Yamaha XS650 Special. During their 30+years of marriage they have had many bikes and even a couple of sidecars to accommodate their three children while they were growing up. Their children have fantastic memories of summer holidays and motorcycle rallies loaded up with Allan and two kids on the GSX1150 with sidecar and a trailer and Andrea on her Suzuki LS650 with the third child.

Andrea's latest bike is a Triumph Bonneville T100
