I’ve been around a bit and have been cycling most of my life. I rode as a kid because that is what kids did. I’d fix my bikes and customise them. Knobby tyres, wide bars, no mudguards and dirt…. anyone would have thought: mountain biking – but it hadn’t been invented! I started riding and selling mountain bikes in 1984. I ran a shop, ran a brand (Kona), ran more brands (Rocky Mountain, Colnago, Ridgeback), ran a shop again and now I just work on bikes and ride.
My aim all along was to inspire and motivate riders and that is still my passion. If I love it, then why not share it.
