Jon Willis

With a background in Corporate IT, Social Media, Digital Marketing and Graphic Design, Jon is an all-rounder who is handy with a wrench but also can talk until the cows come home about bikes; Electric in particular! He can be regularly found documenting his adventures around SEQ on both Instagram and YouTube. Never far from one of his many cameras…

Favourite Ride – A hard decision between Defibrillator in Jubilee Park and 500 Above in Hidden Vale Adventure Park.

Favourite Product – GoPro… (Just kidding!) Specialized Levo. With a big battery and 90nm of torque, it conquers everything.

Marcel Govers - Owner

Riding is in his blood. Marcel is passionate about riding and upskilling new riders to discover the passion of cycling.

He cycled his road bike across several Asian countries, where he raced on amateur level in Singapore, Indonesia and Malaysia. While still living in The Netherlands he did several MTB trips into Belgium and Germany.

Marcel has over a decade of experience in managing companies in several industries.

While in Singapore, Marcel was Club captain for a major cycling Club and Race team. With up to 70 riders joining on Thursday night rides (50KM) and up to 50 riders joining on the weekly Round the Island (RTI - 120 KM) rides the club was a great breeding ground for race talent. We would love to copy that same model for Toowoomba.

Favourite ride: Toowoomba - Brisbane (on the backroads)

Recommends: FFWD wheels because of their unique Double Arc (DARC) rim profile. DARC is designed to keep the airflow out of the wheels spokes to achieve optimal aerodynamic performance.

Sarah Govers - Owner

Enjoys a social ride and beverage to finish. Since moving to Toowoomba, she loves the power of the Specialized Turbo bikes to explore all of Toowoomba’s hills.

Favourite ride: Picnic Point and surrounds

Recommends: Hamax Outback kid’s trailer because her daughter Ella loves to ride in it both behind the bike as well as a pram for walking and running.
