Who We Are

Dream Big & Live an Adventure

Founder of Dream Big Explore, Mel Nicholls lives for adventure.

A Paralympic wheelchair racer and record-breaking ultra endurance handcyclist, Mel’s sports career racing for her country, and her passion for exploring and showcasing Britain and beyond through adventure and cycling, bring her world-class experience and extensive knowledge to Dream Big Explore. 

Having built and completed many multi-day British and overseas endurance cycling challenges, Dream Big Explore will share the journey and take you on adventure.  

As a qualified international level 2 Ride Leader, Mel and her expert team will take you along iconic routes and adventure-filled journeys, some for the day, others much further and longer. Planning, logistics and support, each trip unique and real.

As a social enterprise, Dream Big Explore supports sustainable practise and eco-friendly values. With these, and in support of Beyond Barriers - working to support anyone facing barriers to getting active outside resulting in social isolation, Dream Big Explore works to enable positive change through adventure.

Whether you're looking for a guide for the day around the beautiful Gloucestershire/Herefordshire borders with the best coffee and cake stops with friends or solo, or want to join us on a multi-day bike-packing adventure coast to coast or beyond, know it's not all about the bike, and here it is not a race, it is about the journey.

With Dream Big Explore there is something for everyone, who Dreams Big.

Gold medal mentality | Possibility | Pride | Inspire | Inclusion | Holistic | People & Planet Positive
