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 from Tomakin on an awesome Specialzed Diverge gravel grinder.
I am currently enrolled in a Bachelor of Science at CSU, I have a beautiful wife with a home business and 4 year daughter. All this keeps me very busy but when there is some free time, cycling, bush-walking and fire twirling are all fun activities.
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.
I have been around cycling and bikes for many years. My first set of wheels was a solid tyre trike it was 1955 and I was 2yrs of age. The next around 5 yrs was also a trike with the addition of a rear basket into which I stuffed everything even the dog. Growing up in Kent UK our family didn’t own a car so bikes were our means of transport. I was either in a seat on the back of one or riding my own.
Fast forward, I have been a roadie for many years and spent many hours on the road either riding or driving support vehicles for my eldest daughter who is also a cyclist.
I also enjoy riding a mountain bike on trails and multi day riding is my idea of a holiday. The most recent addition to my fleet is a Specialized Diverge Comp gravel grinder which I think is my new favourite…but don’t tell my other bikes.
I love that after all this time I can still appreciate the benefits to my wellbeing a bike gives me and I am truly grateful to be given the opportunity to work with like-minded people and magnificent machines.
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.
