I cycled a lot as a kid in England growing up. I found cycling again when I moved to Australia and was looking for something to keep me fit after retiring from football/soccer due to knee injuries. I began training on Zwift in 2015 following an injury from a crash. I was immediately hooked, but I found that there were few organized group rides that fit in with Australian time zones. In April 2016 I started the Aussie Hump Day Ride (AHDR) on Wednesday evenings Australian time. The ride quickly grew into one of the biggest community-led social rides on Zwift with up to 700 participants each week. I also lead many other rides on Zwift under the AHDR banner, leading around 3000 riders a week. I love to help others get the best out of their indoor training experience. I want to see people on their bikes. Although I don’t get to ride outside as much as I would like, I still take every chance I can!
