Tom Watson

Tour Leader

Tom Watson, with a degree in Exercise Physiology 

has spent 25 years as a fitness and nutrition expert

owning a fitness training company in Atlanta and

now Blue Ridge, GA. His biggest passion has been

bicycle racing- both mountain and road- bringing

several of his teams to the national winner’s circle.

Much of his knowledge of this area is the result of his bicycle race training on these very

same mountain roads, service roads and trails


Gaining an intimate knowledge of these roads by bicycle was what initially lead Tom to adventure riding on a motorcycle. However, he says, “My total indoctrination to moto was watching Charlie Boorman and Ewan McGregor’s documented adventure trip movie “Long Way Round.” I instantly realized that on a moto, you can cover more miles, expand your riding skills and experience a larger adventure– I was hooked.”


As a fitness instructor and racing professional, Watson realizes that instruction and learning new skills are key components to becoming a better rider. Completing and excelling at these courses has made Tom an accomplished rider and excellent tour leader.
