Swift Group are pleased to announce their support of Team WIGGINS. The team, founded by Sir Bradley Wiggins, has been awarded a UCI Continental licence for 2015, and will race both at home and abroad. To support the team’s ambitions Swift Group have provided the team of elite British riders with a Swift Escape 696.

The Swift Escape motorhome will be fully liveried in the Team WIGGINS colours along with team sponsor logos. At 3500kg the light weight Escape 696 is ideal for the team enabling its younger drivers to drive it to the race venues. The layout is ideal for providing a relaxing environment pre-race, has a seating arrangement to allow for private team meetings and the bunks at the rear can be used for recovery / physio before and after competition.

The Swift Ambassadors
 David Hurst and his wife, Debs, their two young boys, Daniel (5) and Darley (3), and the family pet, Mr Colin dog, are currently exploring the world in their Swift Escape 696 motorhome.
The Hursts fell in love with the freedom a motorhome can offer during their first family trip to Spain, in a hired Swift Escape 686, in 2014. After returning from their holiday they took the decision to downsize their family home and purchase a van of their own. Upon purchasing their Swift Escape 696 they started their Face2Facebook project, in which they travelled with the UK and Europe to visit their Facebook friends and family and chose to donate £2 to a cancer charity for every person they visited. This commitment continues whenever their travels take them close to a family or friend’s home.

2015 saw them embark on their newest exciting adventure, ‘Education by Astonishment’, in which they have taken the decision to remove their eldest son from school for a while to increase learning in exciting and new environments, whilst sticking to a home schooling regime that follows the British National Curriculum subjects. They have pledged to donate to UNICEF for every astonishing person, place or thing they set out to see, incorporating the valuable life lesson that thinking of and giving to others is the best way of happy living.

David Hurst chose to be an ambassador for Swift because his family not only find the Swift motorhome lifestyle brilliant and a great deal of fun, but they also want to inspire others to get outdoors and visit amazing people and astonishing places – whether on long trips like theirs, or just for a few hours on a Sunday.
As David so rightly says, “Get outdoors and be astonished!”

Lee Davey

Lee Davey and his family own a Sprite tourer. For them, caravanning is about valuable time spent with family seeing new sights and experiencing new things. They are strong believers that caravanning not only encourages this but also allows affordable and frequent holidays, whilst staying within their budget. Lee, his wife, and two children (7 & 12) go caravanning up to 40 destinations a year. They use their caravan as the catalyst to enable them to see the UK and Europe at their own pace.

Lee’s family enjoy a range of outdoor pursuits such as kayaking, cycling, and horse riding. And they are always ready for a new adventure. This year will see them visit: Devon, Cornwall, Dorset, Somerset, the Cotswolds, West Midlands, France and Belgium, to name but a few!
Over the course of this year enjoying outdoor activities, making new friends and having fun as a family they will be putting down the gadgets, something they term 'Screen free breaks'. Lee said "We realised that the whole family were at times spending too long on our gadgets rather than speaking to each other and being more active. We are really excited about spending even more time in the great outdoors, and encourage all families who go caravanning or want to do it to give the gadgets a break and get out and about!"

Lee chose to become a Swift ambassador because he is a Swift tourer advocate and wants to get more people into the lifestyle.

“As it’s such a flexible way of getting away, our Sprite fits-in with whatever we want to do whether it’s action-packed, sit back & relax or hopping from one country to another.” Lee Davey.
In 2015 The Swift Group teamed up with extreme sportsman Neil Greentree, owner and boss of UK windsurf Race and Demo team Team QSW. His experience in outdoor sports and his passion for getting as much out of life as possible meant he was the obvious choice for The Swift Group to sponsor to test and write about how our products perform under extreme conditions.

Neil has always been very outdoor minded and his passion for exploration and adventure continues to this day. Neil is an extreme sport Junkie, who likes taking leisure vehicles along with him to give him the freedom to go wherever the wind takes him. He likes windsurfing, mountain biking, hiking, cycling, surfing and wants share his experiences and adventures to encourage others to get into leisure vehicles as he feels they are so important to enable an outdoor adventure lifestyle.

Neil told us, “I grew up with caravans and motorhomes and they have always been the most natural and organic way to travel and holiday. My experience in Freecamping (due to the location of sailing spots I sail) meant teaming up with Swift was a perfect vocation for me. To now be able to test and advise Swift with what works and what doesn't 'out in the field' just seems the right thing to do.”

Neil has been set a number of exciting 2015 ‘Challenge Neil Greetree’ assignments, which you can read more about soon. Find out more here:
