Sharing our passion for all things bikes, our Hiplok Riders represent all corners of the cycling community. And we’re incredibly proud to support them and keep their pride and joy safe from roadies to mountain bikers, cargo bike enthusiasts to commuters, here are this year’s Hiplok Riders.
Sam is a playful rider hailing from the Peak District in the UK. His riding consists of big jumps and “getting sideways”. Sam finds the thrill in expressing his creativity and style through his mountain bike riding.
”I’m just a regular guy who enjoys riding his bike (maybe too much)”. Day or night, rain or shine you’ll see Marko riding his fixed gear bike. Marko started riding fixed gear bicycles 15 years ago and tells us it was love at first sight.
”Fixed gear always and forever!” – Marko
Ella can be found hitting the roads and trails of the Surrey Hills in the UK. But when the hustle and bustle of Surrey or London gets too much, you’ll find her enjoying the scenery in a slightly calmer Mallorca.
Off the bike, Ella helps guide people through downward dogs and sun salutations as a yoga teacher better through stretching
Craig is a bike builder and restorer from East London with the goal to save old bikes and give them a new life. You can watch him film the process from start to finish on his YouTube channel ‘2NDLIFEBIKES’ for his followers to enjoy.
”Last thing I want is to lose them to pesky thieves, so I’m stoked to be a part of the Hiplok team!” – Craig
Chris aka Thrasher is a fixed gear enthusiast ripping up the streets of LA since 2008. Chris loves the community side of cycling, bringing people together, whether it’s through doing tricks or taking on a century. “Bikes bring bonds”.
“Riding my bike is very therapeutic for me and helps me keep my mind and body right” – Chris
Pro mountain bike racer, Fergus Ryan (Ferg), races bikes all over the world! Hailing from the Forest of Dean in England, Ferg loves riding with his fellow mountain bike-obsessed friends. When he’s not sending it down the trails, he’ll be found with a shovel in his hand, digging loam trails.
“Every summer I make it my mission to explore new and exciting places to ride and race my bike” – Fergus Ryan
Debbie, also known as Duathlon Girl, didn’t start riding a bike until she was nearly 40! But she is now passionate about encouraging more women to get cycling!
She spent a few years focusing on Duathlon, winning an age group world title. She loves the challenge of learning new disciplines and regularly participates in races. Will 2024 be the year she enters her first downhill MTB?
Maddy, AKA @Cargobikemomma, is a mother of three, from New York City. Maddy and her family can be found cycling in their trusted cargo bikes all around NYC.
Maddy is a huge advocate for the urban cargo bike lifestyle and loves showcasing the benefits of cargo bikes through style, humour and fun.
Marco is a commuter cyclist, who decided to merge his passion for cycling and route planning with his everyday life. He sold his car and now commutes to work by bicycle come rain or shine.
A huge cycling advocate, Marco continues to shares his passion and enthusiasm for cycling with others.
