Matt Cain 

About me:

After giving up the rat race in 2006 I’ve been following a life motivated by biking.  I spent 3 years guiding MTB tours full time in South America, worked as a cycle mechanic and organised cycling holidays across New Zealand.

I now work as the Mountain Biking product manager for the UK’s largest independent cycling holidays’ operator. I live and play in Northumberland, and love exploring it’s wild places with my wife and our 2 year old daughter. 

My plans for the 2017 season are simple: to have as diverse a range of adventures by bike as I can. Family rides, marathon events, endure racing, bikepacking escapades and plenty of guided tours are all in the works. 

I found out about Team Flare and the Flare Ambassador programme during a shopping expedition on the Flare website.  I simply love the combination of stylish kit, local manufacturing and the ethos that fun should always be your first priority.
