Our People

Great trips don’t just happen. We have great people to put together the details for you.  We Know: We Care is a mantra we live by. We take pride in the trail knowledge we have and the support and care we offer.  Our past clients are testimony to our success so give us a call to find out more.

Craig Sharratt

Crazy about anything to do with bikes for over 30 years. At some point during his life Craig has raced, fixed, sold, bought, and built bikes. It doesn’t matter what kind of bikes they are, Craig enjoys riding and talking about them. He will be more than happy to help you plan an amazing experience on one or both of our favourite trails, the A2O or West Coast Wilderness.

Geoff Gabites

Outdoors enthusiast, broken down cyclist and overall good guy. After 20 years of growing Adventure South, NZ’s leading guided cycle tour company, it led him to the Mackenzie, Twizel and the wineries and food outlets of the Waitaki and the development of Cycle Journeys. Occassional guide, maker of tea and sometimes driver of your bus, Geoff always has a good story and a laugh. He flips between the Christchurch office and the Twizel and Hokitika depots, and may even be the voice on the end of the phone for your initial enquiry.

Kelly Catlow

Kelly’s main enjoyment in life is walking her dog Jaeger on the beach! She is also sport mad, and loves watching Rugby, League, Netball and Football. However, her main passion is hiking. Whilst she has completed numerous Great Walks throughout New Zealand, she recently returned from walking the length of Spain: An 800km walk called The Camino de Santiago. She travelled solo on this month long adventure, and it was the highlight of her life so far! She loves any new challenge and will be the first to put her hand up to ‘give it a go’.

Shelley Gabites

When someone is needed to sort out fine details, figure out the accounting stuff, sort out IT problems – or deal with tricky customer service issues, Shelley is our first call.

With a long background in the outdoor  industry  (co-founder of Macpac) Shelley has explored much of New Zealand and has cycled and trekked in many overseas destinations.  She is based in our Christchurch office and often commutes to Twizel or Hokitika depots to provide support.
