This company wouldn’t exist without the amazing people that are behind it. We hire local talent in everything we do. And guess what? From our local graphic designer, photographers, screen printer, office staff, to our coaches and guides, we are all passionate about mountain biking. We are all connected simply because we know that riding bikes makes us happy and healthy.
Happiness is not a far fetched goal for us, it comes on two wheels.
We invite you to join us and experience for yourself how much joy can come out of riding your bike.
We love what we do, and we know, you will too.
