Clarke & Justine
Avid cyclists and mountain bikers themselves, Clarke and Justine started Outback Cycling back in 2010 from their backyard. They have looked after and nurtured the business for 9 years (and counting) like it was a child of their own and are proud to head the OC team. And very occasionally, you might find them sneaking a ride in on the trails!
Jenn initially came to Australia as a backpacker from Canada 7 years ago. Jenn has been with OC for 4 years and is currently our Customer Experience Manager. When she’s not working on marketing, you might spot her guiding a tour or helping out in the shop.
Diane handles both Uluru and Alice Springs bookings and administration. If you call our office, you’ll most likely be greeted by Diane’s smiling voice!
Meet German Andy. Most of the time you'll find him at Uluru, where he helps our guests enjoy epic bike rides around the majestic rock. If you see the same face in Alice Springs serving you a coffee at the old Telegraph Station or doing a guided tour there, it's not his twin brother. He says he “is lucky enough to call Alice Springs and Yulara home”. Like others who end up here, Andy fell in love with the Red Centre and ended up staying. He says “the people, the unique nature, the awesome bike trails and the laid back lifestyle makes it very hard not to love this place.”
This is Kacper (yes pronounced Casper, like the ghost), our Alice Springs Store Manager. Originally from Poland, Kacper has been living in Australia for 4 years. Last month he made the big move from 99 Bikes in Melbourne to take on the reigns of managing our OC Central store. He’s been riding since he was 8 years old and hasn’t stopped since. One of his greatest riding achievements is summiting Mauna Kea in Hawaii!
Hailing from Australia’s coolest island (Tasmania) we welcome Jack. He has joined our team as an exceptional Tour Guide and OC Shop Assistant. Back in Tassie he was a Tour Guide too, but with zip lines, rope courses and segways!
Karan is our mechanic extraordinaire. He has over 7 years experience working on all types of bikes. In his past life in "the big smoke" (Sydney), he worked on everything from road and tri bikes, to full suspension mountain bikes.
Owen is our Junior Mechanic and is learning from the best. He is an aspiring mountain bike racer and has been riding exceptionally in recent stage races. Basically, Owen makes all of us feel old and want to be 16 again.
