Reid Rider Of The Month Nicola & Jess

Hot Read Hot read Mar 30

We’ve got a 2 for 1 this month with our Reid Rider of the Month! Nicola and Jess are best friends from Melbourne that took to bike riding through the strict Aussie lockdowns. Bikes are for life, not just for lockdown and this is something they definitely stick by, incorporating cycling into their post lockdown life.

Introduce yourself…

Hey Nicola and Jess here 🙂 We are from Melbourne, Australia! Over lockdown as most of you know, Melbourne was in extra extra lockdown unfortunately hahaha, so Jess and I’s passion for a fun active lifestyle only grew over this time. We tried to keep it as fun as possible whilst in lockdown and that’s when we purchased our bikes!

When and how did you get into bike riding?

During lockdown, Jess and I were always looking for fun things to do and keep ourselves entertained! Cycling became our biggest saviour during lockdown – every morning we would get up ride our bikes around the canals/ beaches/ through any beautiful scenery and pack a little breakfast in our baskets and we would watch the sunrise and eat our breakfast.

This was the most amazing way to start our mornings and a real game changer. This is something we try to still do every morning out of lockdown also because it’s just so special and really sets you up for a great day!

How did you get your hands on a Reid?

Jess already had a Reid bike that she purchased a year before and she convinced me to get one also! Best decision I’ve made by far 😌

Which Reid bike did you ride?

Ladies Classic Bike

How has it treated you?

Our bikes have literally gone through the whole lockdown with us, they’ve treated us very well considering we have absolutely thrashed them every day.

What have you done and where have you been with it?

We have taken our bikes all over Melbourne, through scenic walks, through the city, beaches and canals.

Do you have any other future adventures planned?

We are hoping to buy 4wd that we can pop our bikes on and take them on our fun road trips!

Finally, what advice would you give to those who are considering getting into bike riding or perhaps have never tried it before?

Our advice is, buy yourself a Reid bike, everyone we have recommended over the last year has absolutely loved it and died over how comfortable it is to ride. It’s so comfortable and easy and will get you right back into riding just like you were when you were little. So so nostalgic.
