Richard Scott is the original owner and founder of Kiwi Style Bike Tours and continues to guide for us. He is a former NZ representative cyclist, and two times Oceania Games Champion who has competed in Morocco at the 1986 Junior World Championships, Australia and New Caledonia at the Oceania Games in 1987 and 1989, and has ridden two seasons on the American Track circuit in Pennsylvania.
After 12 years away from competitive cycling he returned to racing in 2005 and started Kiwi Style Bike Tours with the initial European trips which continue to be the backbone of our most popular packages.
From 2018 Jake Rowse has taken over the running and ownership of Kiwi Style Bike Tours after guiding for Kiwi Style for the previous five years.
Jake has also represented New Zealand at age group level track cycling World Championships and still enjoys the occasional road and track race. The personal satisfaction and enjoyment is now found sharing his favourite rides with Kiwi Style customers.
All the guides used in Europe are personal friends, helping to create a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. They all come from racing backgrounds and have been riding bikes for many years, and love sharing their passion for riding. The current Kiwi Style guides include Barry, Jerry, Jimmy, Richy, Brooksie, Glenn and Brent
The upcoming 2018 season is the 13th year for the team at Kiwi Style Bike Tours taking fellow cyclists on holidays through Italy, France, Spain and Australia.
