Riding Experience: Have commuted to and from work by bicycle for many years. A keen weekend Mountain biker, have ridden most of the trails on the Sunny Coast.
What do you love about bikes?: I love the social aspects, fitness, getting dirty & muddy out in the bush and the adrenalin rush of tackling new obstacles.

Current Bikes: Merida 1-20 Carbon Full Suspension. Merida O.Nine Carbon Hardtail.
Favourite Ride: Ho Chi Hoe at Parklands is great fun, you can string together 5 or 6 log rides in a row. Rocket Frog down at Gap Creek in Brisbane is also fast and flowing.

Riding Experience: Have been commuting to work nearly every day since I started. In my spare time I try to go out mountain biking.
What do you love about bikes?: The thing I most love about bikes is the fitness but then second of all being out bush and having a bash... I also enjoy a good crash occasionally :)
Expertise: I would have to say mountain bikes and commuters, as that is what I mostly ride.

Favourite Ride: Mountain biking would be Parklands & Gap Creek. For commuting the footpath that goes through Mooloolaba down to cotton tree is great.
