A long time cyclist Matt's love affair with bikes and all things cycling began very early on in life.

I can remember the first time I rode without training wheels for the first time. It was Anglesea caravan park. Dad gave me a push to start me off, I rounded the puddle at the end of the street, dabbed my foot and started again. From then on if I was going anywhere it was on a bike.

Fast forward a few years and I started racing both road and mountain bikes as a junior. From then on it didn't matter the weather, I was riding. I can still remember training out the back of Buninyong one winters night when the whole bunch went down after hitting a patch of ice.

At the age of 15 I started working at bike shops both selling and repairing bikes. It was here I learned that I was not alone in my passion for all things bikes. Whether it was for transport, fitness, a hobby or serious sport I quickly realised what a buzz it was to help someone else reach their cycling goals.

As I grew older I discovered cycling was an escape, absolute freedom from the day to day world. There is nothing better than finding a new road to ride on the road bike or the peacefulness and tranquility of being in the bush finding a new single track. It has also given me the opportunity to meet an amazing array of people. Cycling truly does bring people together.

When backpacking Europe, the first thing Bron and I would do when in a new city is find some bikes to hire. Paris, Berlin, Brussels, Barcelona and London just to name a few. It was a great way to explore and experience the true vibe of these amazing cities.

Now my cycling life has changed again. My escapes now sometimes include our little girl. If I have my way she'll be a cyclist as well.

Cyclescape is all about helping people find their own cycling escape, whatever that may be.

Come in and see us soon. It's life changing.
