The man with the plan....

Long time MTB rider originally from Tasmania who has travelled extensively and ridden in some amazing places across the globe. Loves to 'send it' and enjoys some fun on the trails, not a serious racer but enjoys competing in enduro style events.

In a previous time he was a respected fitness trainer, course presenter and educator with his own successful gym business, but now prefers to combine these skills and knowledge with his true passions as a qualified bike mechanic, mtb skills instructor and fitness coach. This inspired the creation and development of the exciting Hit Bikes brand.

If he doesn't coach it, then it's not worth knowing....

Having worked in the education industry in alternate and outdoor education for 14 years, teaching is his thing. With a passion for mtb and professional qualifications through both PMBIA & MTBA, it's a no-brainer that he uses these skills to coach kids and adults in his relaxed and informative way. He will help you find your riding mojo - or as he says #getrad.....

Renee says about Geoff: "one of the guys from the group rode behind me and was impressed. He commented how my riding had improved and it looked like I was floating over the jumps and picking good lines. I have you to thank for that. Thank you!"
