About us

Hi, I’m Mandy and as the Director of Compass Outdoor I have been enjoying the outdoor life for many years. In the last 10 years I have been drawn to the sport of mountain biking and endurance challenge events gaining my Mountain Bike Leader qualification in 2013. Through my desire to explore, walking became the next passion either as a social activity or from a more fitness endurance base in the format of ultra marathon walking. In 2015 I qualified as a Nordic Walking Instructor and have a regular group of walkers in the Surrey Hills midweek and at weekends.

With the assistance of my husband, Sean, a qualified International Mountain Leader and road bike guide we hope to pass on our enjoyment of the outdoors to our clients and there is no better place than The Surrey Hills.

Fitness aside my main focus has always been on motivating people to succeed in any way they can and from any background and fitness level.

Cycling and walking the extensive trails/footpaths around Leith Hill, Holmbury, Abinger,  Winterfold Forest and Polesden Lacy has been a great adventure and one in which I enjoy sharing with others.

If you think we can enhance your fitness and well being and you want to enjoy this wonderful countryside, contact Compass Outdoor and make a difference to your life today.
