Dawn and Richard are passionate about anything on two wheels, be it MTB, Moto or Track. We do it all and have for over 30 years!
Richard grew up riding BMX and trail bikes in the forests around Canberra, and for many years a Honda VF400 was his main transport. Bikes are in Dawn's DNA and has fond memories riding on her Dad's Triumph and Uncle's BSA motorcycles. In her teens Dawn raced motocross against the boys, winning C Grade Championship and progressed on to road bikes.
Together we induldge in our passion owning sports, adventure and dirt bikes. We road-raced in the 600cc Super Sport class in Qld with Richard on board a Honda CBR 600RR and Dawn riding a Yamaha R6 (Dawn's bike was the fastest!). We have toured the world on adventure bikes and through our own travel adventures we know that amazing locations, good food and somewhere nice to stay are key. But what makes a great trip, one that you will be talking about for years to come are the people you meet who share your passion, and with their knowledge help you on your journey and make it a truely unforgettable experience.
At MADMTB we like to focus on families and small groups providing a personalised service. This gives us the flexibility to change things around if the weather or trail conditions are not the best. Derby and St Helens is our backyard, our team all ride and have a good knowledge of the trails to share with you.
Our values are simple - Professional, knowledgable & friendly service
So join us for a MAD time at Derby!
MEET THE TEAM
Andrew has a lifetime of riding experience and recently obtained his PMBIA certification for coaching and guiding.
Andrew is a riding machine and enjoys all aspects of Mountain Biking from Technical Enduro trails to XC racing and crazy all day adventure rides.
He is always keen to share his passion and knowledge of the Derby, Blue Tier and St Helens trail networks and help others make the most of their riding experience.
He endeavors to keep up with the latest trends in MTBing but still insists on wearing his ten year old Ground Effects clothing!
Angus is a 5 year old Bullmastiff from Guardville Kennels on the Qld Sunshine Coast. Angus has been with us since a puppy, he loves his teddy and sometimes playing ball (when he is in the mood!) and going on adventures. At the end of a hard day you will find him flaked out in front of the fire contentedly snoring his headoff.
MADMTB HQ is conveniently located 100 metres from the trails
We operate a shuttle fleet of late model Toyota Commuter buses with "load & lock" flat bed trailers which are exclusive to MADMTB to keep your pride and joy safe and secure
