I enjoy working at Batemans Bay Cycles, it has given me the opportunity to learn all aspects of bike repair and maintenance. I also get to commute to work on an awesome Specialzed Diverge gravel grinder.
I started working at Batemans Bay Cycles for work experience when I was 13. I have grown up around bikes since I was little with both my parents racing MTB and I have become a professional BMX racer myself. I have always had a passion for bikes and everything to do with them so working in a bike shop was a must for me. I enjoy learning about more complex bikes and every fine detail about them. Batemans Bay Cycles has a great learning environment with everyone sharing the same passion for the cycling industry.
Riding has always been a passion of mine, ever since I took my first step. I’ve always orientated my life around bikes whether it be building tracks or racing. I grew up racing XC than converted to Downhill in my teenage years. With working in a bike shop I hope to further my knowledge on bikes, if it be in the workshop or on the shop floor.
I started working as Batemans Bay Cycles as a Jnr Mechanic straight out of school, moving onto working for other local business owners. I enjoy scooters & bmx, this has brought me back to working with scooters and bmx’s again. I enjoy the rush of landing new tricks as well as teaching younger people tricks that i have learnt, even though to them im an old fart, the only reason i got into riding was thanks to my cousin and his mates, i just wanted to fit in and eventually got bettter than them.
