MEET THE TEAM
Steve was born in the UK, and grew up in Snowdonia, North Wales. Forests and hills have always had a place in his heart. He moved to Hong Kong in January 2013 and has also lived in quite a few other countries since first leaving the UK in 1989. Steve is pretty new to the hiking scene of Hong Kong - it has only been since August 2014 that he started hiking seriously as part of a self imposed fitness regime which goes to the side when he finds a pub at the end of a route! Steve prefers to do fast, long & hard hikes and also likes to explore new trails. He has been known to push the limit physically and also compete in various races in the territory but then he is also just as happy to slow things down and do a slow hike which ends in a swim. It is all just good old outdoors fun. Founded Hong Kong Hikers Ltd with Rob Rigby in 2016. Speaks English and Turkish.
Rob Rigby has been actively hiking for over 10 years, first starting in the UK before gaining more experience in the Rila Mountains, Bulgaria and followed more recently by taking on the challenge of Base Camp Everest, Nepal and then Mount Elbrus, Russia. Other notable achievements have been walking 160km with Sir Ian Botham on one of his fundraising walks: ‘Beefy’s Big Sri Lanka Walk’ and an ultra-tough challenge of completing the UK ‘3 Peaks Challenge’ in a 24 hour time period. Alongside Hiking, his other passions are Fishing, Cricket and Mountain Biking. Rob has been living in Hong Kong since June 2015 and is amazed at the quality of hikes available here. It has allowed him to continue his passion whilst living in the middle of a vibrant city. He is very excited to be involved with Hong Kong Hikers so that he can share the experience of hiking Hong Kong with others.
