Matt Cain is another one who caught our eye when we put a call out for new Team members. He’s into everything!
Base: Northumberland, UK
Disciplines: The works – everything from Family rides to bikepacking
Work: MTB product manager at Skedaddle
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.
