Ben

Four Wheel Driving, Cycling, Camping, Preparation for Optimum Enjoyment

Ben loves regularly camping with his family and they do an annual trip to the Bathurst V8 Supercar race where they camp out for a week. They take power generators, bike carriers, luggage boxes and awnings amongst a long list of many other things. He knows that if you plan properly, your trip will be an enjoyable one and you will be grateful you took that extra time to plan ahead. No matter how much experience you may or may not have in camping and 4WD adventures, Dan helps you plan and put together a list of what you need to make the most out your adventure.

Craig

Four Wheel Driving, Camping Under the Stars, Adventure Bound

There aren’t too many places around Australia that Craig has not visited in his 4WD with his family. At home they have a big map of Australia on which they trace their adventures once they have completed them. He wants to experience Australia from North to South, East to West together with his three kids. They have already spent many weeks on the road together, fully self sufficient and ready for anything that turns up. Craig helps many of our clients who are about to do some serious traveling around Australia to equip their vehicles with everything they need to make for a safe and enjoyable journey.

Dan

Marathons, Cycling, “My goal was to run 40 kms in 4 hours before I turned 40”.

Dan achieved his goal at the Adelaide Marathon a couple of years ago and is now training for the Kanagaroo Island marathon which is in its second year. Dan has participated in Bike SA events completing a 155km ride to Victor Harbor and the Tour Down Under. He is sharing many of these experiences with his kids, who unknowingly kicked off his running passion when he began pushing prams around and walking became running. He comments that his kids are growing up “screen deprived” as they often accompany him on his runs, they will probably thank him when they’re older.

Lachie

Downhill Mountain Biking, Motorcross, Resident prankster

Lachie won second place in the downhill mountain biking SA State Championship in 2016. He is our resident risk taker. He says that the main similarity between Motorcross and downhill mountain biking is bike control – handling narrow moments between crashing and landing, 60-70 kph speeds, the high and long jumps and a few stacks to prepare for that are to be expected. Lachie is now training for the full state series next season in downhill mountain biking and you will often find him at Fox Creek on weekends with his Scott Gambler mountain bike.
