Continuing our series on meeting the One Aim team, we introduce a rider who defies the saying - “Cyclists should be seen and not heard.”
I’m pretty sure that’s a saying, but feel free not to fact check that.
WHAAAAAAT? It’s Bradley Arthur!
Bradley is easily recognized on bike with his distinctive “Redback” riding boots. Seriously he wears boots, and it’s awesome.
Bradley received his golden helmet last year as 5 year rider in the RTCC and is back for #6.
A lover of all things cookie, you may also see Bradley out and walkabout in his Cookie Monster or Australian Cycling Team jerseys or cycling caps.
Here is some more information about Bradley straight from the man himself:
Tell us about yourself Bradley?
Married to my long suffering and very understanding wife Brigitte.
Aside from cycling I enjoy hiking, beer, hiking with beer (wait... sounds a lot like Kevin's profile....).
"My boots are made for cycling, and that's just what they'll do. One of these days my boots are gonna pedal right past you."
How many times have you done the RTCC?
2016 will be my 6th RTCC.
Why do you Ride Bradley?
I ride for my Mum who beat breast cancer 20 years ago.
I ride for my Dad who is living with Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma.
I ride to honour all of the awesome people I met as I worked for the event who have their own stories about cancer.
We want to meet you Bradley Arthur, where might we find you?
You can find me on Tuesday and Saturday rides with One Aim. If I’m not there, then check the pub!
What kind of bike do you ride?
My bike of choice for the last 3 RTCC is my 2005 LeMond Zurich - the best $750 I have ever spent on a bike.
Clipless pedals, however I have not figured out to embed cleats in a pair of Redback work boots.
