Any spare minute we can, we are on the trails or road cycling. We don’t just work in a bicycle shop, we live bikes – we can tell you about the local trails or laps in town, the best runs and link you up with other riders. (link to Toowoomba Group Rides)


Meet Darren

Darren has always been on some form of two wheels. Growing up in Nowra NSW, he worked and was mentored at the local bike shop. This led to many opportunities in the local road cycling scene. In the late 90’s, Darren competed in the under 19’s time trial, which then led for him to be the dark horse surprising even himself by winning the Open Men’s time trial Championships, beating all the other competitors including some elite national level athletes! These days, Darren now shares the love between road and mountain biking. He, his wife Olivia and their two sons enjoy the variety in Toowoomba of trails and road tracks.

iRide Bikes Toowoomba has been a staple in the Toowoomba biking community for decades. When our team are not working on or with bikes, they are on trails or tracks enjoying and discovering the best local rides for themselves.


Meet Michael

Michael is one of the best guys to work on your bike and give advice on your ride. He has 10 years experience in the industry and is accomplished in multiple disciplines.

In a previous life, Michael was Toowoomba’s favourite – Mike the Bike Tech. His successful career in trails tragically cut short from an injury, but it hasn’t completely kept him from living on two wheels.

Riding is in the family. Sam, Michael’s wife is a machine on the trails and the road, and there have been the occasional rides to work with his son Jacob – not long now son until your legs are long enough for your own ride!
Michael is your classic all-rounder – knowledgeable and one of the nicest people you’ll ever meet. If you see Michael on the road, make sure you check out his custom Trek Decals

Meet Max

Max have been with the iRide team for over 5 years.

Bike mechanics is his deal. Yeti is his favourite brand.

He cannot bear to part with any bike he has ever owned. Once they are in Max’s shed, they are a part of the family! Max has been riding for many years – in these part his trail rides are legendary!

One of Max’s many mild superpowers is that he has dual skills of excellent road riding too. Another mild superpower is Max’s ability to rattle off any spec, any bike – we challenge you!


Meet Cam

Cam is one of the best in the biz! He is the quiet achiever in the iRide team.

Many moons ago, he used to race BMX and is a staple in the iRide family. His favourite job is to build custom BMX’s, so if you have a custom build that’s not considered the norm, Cam is the guy to speak to! 

He loves anything with wheels, even the 4 wheeled engine powered type. His blue Holden wagon you will hear before you see it & it’s always a great feeling to hear the Holden roar and know that Cam is in the shop for the day!


Meet Sarah

Sarah is a champion in many national Enduro championships. She knows her stuff as she works so hard training for all her events. She’s also completing high school education around managing her many bike events. Sarah is the friendly face you’ll talk to on a Saturday morning or weekday afternoons.

She’s the girl to talk to when you need some tips on the trails at Jubilee Park – you’ll get the inside local knowledge and she’s got the skills to back it up!
