Brian "Bubba" Cooke - Tour Leader Bubba seems to have been born to ride, not because he is the strongest or fastest (won't be long before his wife is leaving him behind), but because there is a real sense of connection and harmony when he is in (or out of) the saddle. Bubba has an extraordinary capacity for planning (and recalling) cycling routes across Europe and at home. He spent 12 months living in France and has been back many times since, there is nobody better to guide you around on a cycling tour and his love of cycling is highly contagious.
Gordon Sutherland - Ride Guide, Mechanic, Rider Support, Driver. "Gordo" resides in Bright, Australia's alpine cycling capital and is the owner of the delightful (and extremely cycling friendly) Pioneer Garden Cottages. He is also an extremely capable bike rider (just so busy he doesn't get out as much as he would like) and can drive anything. Gordo is very patient, can ride almost any tempo and like the rest of our crew, absolutely besotted with the beauty that surrounds you when cycling in the high mountains, his enthusiasm and relaxed manner is highly infectious. Always at the ready to provide a helping hand during our tours with pretty much anything. Amazing driver, support rider, mechanic, and great company.
Michelle Cooke - Ride Guide, Rider Support, Driver. "Shelley" began her athletic life as more of a runner but like many, has fallen under the spell of cycling. This is primarily due to spending significant chunks of time in the past four years, cycling the mountains of France, Italy and Australia. With this devotion to the bike has come some very impressive riding strength and she certainly now has Bubba looking over his shoulder. A qualified cycling coach and experienced ride leader, Shelley is a delightfully positive girl who loves sharing riders achievements and experiences in the mountains and loves helping you to have an incredible holiday along the way.
