Meet The Team
Senior Editor and UESCA Cycling Coach
A road cyclist at heart, Rory clocked early on that he had much more of a knack for writing about bikes than he ever did racing them. In recent years, the focus of Rory’s love affair with cycling has shifted to bikepacking – a discipline he found well-suited to his “enthusiasm-over-talent” approach.
Originally hailing from the United Kingdom, Rory is currently based in Buenos Aires, where he is loving taking advantage of all the backcountry bikepacking South America has to offer.

Jack has been a two-wheel fanatic since a very young age. He loves zooming around the local country roads in Sussex on his road bike, and more recently enjoys flying down MTB trails on his gravel bike.
A supreme lover of bikepacking, Jack has ridden many long-distance cycle tours in the UK.
