ABOUT THE FOUNDERS

Bucket List Biking’s roots

Mike and Helen decided to formalise their passion for organising MTB bike tours after arranging many adventures over the last 30 years. A wager between 4 friends over a few bottles of good South African Red wine resulted in them attempting their 1st Argus Cycle tour in 1996.

In 2017, Mike and Peter received their Blue numbers after completing 21 consecutive Cape Town Cycle Tours. Helen finished 8 Cape Town Cycle Tours over this time and both their daughters rode Cape Town Cycle Tours from the age of 14.

The passion for MTB has its roots way back when Mike started building and riding “off road” bicycles back in the 1970’s He was a member of the 4 man team that won the National 24 hour “off-road” bike relay for Under 18s in 1975.

Having owned and lived on a farm for many years also resulted in them having to train by riding off-road on mountain bikes. Besides the 21 Cape Town Tours, Mike’s passion has been for Mountain
Biking. After participating in MTB events and multi stage events across Southern Africa over the last 25 years, he has moved to arranging multi day Adventure rides into the more remote areas of Southern Africa and even as far afield as France.

They initially planned cycling holidays for their family and then friends started joining them on these adventures. These adventures have been tackled with ever increasing groups of friends who have joined in to experience the enjoyment of the smaller groups and remote destinations.
