Rider

The ultimate corporate
bike challenge

Pete Forbes

Pete worked in Engineering for 15 years, before leaving the corporate sector to work in the travel industry and guest services. Now, he works full time with Bikestyle Tours, a boutique cycling holiday company that follows the major road cycling events around the globe.

Many skills transitioned to his new role including logistics, systems management and most of all customer service. Pete spends up to 3 months each year in Europe coordinating and leading cycling trips for guests all over the world. Back in Australia, he is planning the next trips, including predicting grand tour routes, booking hotels, organising the logistics and planning interesting cycling bike routes.

2018 marks the third year partnership between Chain Reaction Queensland and Bikestyle Tours. Under the direction of Adam Gill (Bikestyle Tours director), Pete and his partner Lorian Graham deliver the training program, helping the large group of riders work together and support each other to survive the 7 days on a bike. What is most rewarding about each Chain Reaction ride is seeing the life-changing effects of riding a bike regularly and raising the funds to support kids in need has on every participant. A truly unique experience.
