How it all began

In 2008 we freedom cycled around Samoa to celebrate an early “retirement”.  We fell in love with the stunning beaches and friendly people and have since been unable to stay away.

We enjoyed showing our friends and family the delights and it gradually transformed into a new business running bike and kayak tours that are now our full-time jobs.

We outgrew our original base at the Airport Lodge and leased land just down the road in Mulifanua where we built our workshop, house and the “Bike Shed” which is our base.

We currently divide our time between Mulifanua in Samoa and Wellington in New Zealand where our daughters and grandchildren are based.
