About Matt Quirk
Matt is one half of the Good Rotations team.
He first hit New Zealand’s shores as a wide eyed cycle tourist on a year visa to explore the country on two wheels. Growing up in the heady days of BMX (the first time around), the bicycle obsession is deep rooted. After serving time as a bicycle messenger for several years, he escaped the UK for the land of the long white cloud.
Simple steel workhorse bikes that can be loaded up for long valley explorations are his buzz right now.

Assistance can be many things “You’re cheating!” – how many e-bike riders out there have been regaled with this unprovoked commentary as you ride to work, take a cruise on a cycle trail or otherwise dare to ride a bike with brazen electrical assistance?
