My cycling began after a childhood of dirt jumping and mud shredding, when I decided to jump aboard my Dad’s 1970 531 steel Claud Butler (around 5-6 years ago). It involved riding as far as I could with my mate Sam until either one of us bonked, both of us bonked or one of the bikes broke beyond repair. Since then it’s evolved, with my true calling found in a good café park up and some local segment hunting with mates. The last two years have been characterised by a somewhat questionable dabble in racing. The freedom and pursuit of progress gave me focus and a challenge, whilst being centred around something I genuinely loved. Cycling offers a genuinely fulfilling challenge that seems so important to me in this hectic and often unfulfilling modern society.


Since adding a titanium weapon to the arsenal, in the form of my stunning Curve Belgie Disc, my journey into the cycling world has taken a new and exciting step forward. My introduction to the Curve community, thanks to Jordan at G!RO, has enhanced my passion for the sport and revealed new ways in which I can challenge myself and enjoy riding. I have been educated and intrigued by the world of ultra-racing and adventure riding, nervous and eager to immerse myself further in this side of cycling by throwing myself at all the opportunities this rapidly growing, amazing, unique and diverse community offer me.
