Hi it’s Steve, Welcome to my Page…lets get to know each other

What do we do ?

“Social Media has overtaken Technology” in other words ‘Social Media’ is now the you the rider and ‘Technology’ the bike… yes we have all come of age on mass and accepted ‘Social Media’ as our preferred vehicle of choice, to discover, research, consume and share.

We build “Connected Multi Media ‘lifestyler’ Online Communities”,  simply put, this is merging and simplifying the never ending streams of info. A simplified fun online experience is the primary focus. We are  the ‘Grass Roots’ Online Connectors” for the GC Active lifestylers/Cycling community. Mobile, Fun and Factual at your finger tips 24/7

Finding all the Cycling Events, Opportunities and Experiences for the Recreational Road Cycling was extremely frustrating and time consuming. Googling was an increasing nightmare. I needed something far more efficient and mobile, but what and how?
In 2012 while participating the Gold Coast’s GC100 event I unfortunately was involved in a multi bike spill on latimers Crossing,  I think about 25? lots of blood and scrapes, of which I largely escaped, but I did end up with a bad break Neck at C6. My life changed in a moment, and a new reality comes crashing through your unprepared conscious thinking…In my mind it was more about distracting my thinking from the obvious and focusing on something that would drive my mind and vision forward.  Thankfully after 8 months I was fortunate enough to make a full recovery. During that 8 months of very limited movement & time on my hands, it was an opportunity to deal with the frustrations of finding cycling events. It really kicked in to gear on the trip home from hospital, my son Zach described the reasons for cycling’s disorganised state – “Dad the problem with Cycling is, that it’s popularity is far exceeding it’s current resources” That crystallised it for me, that was the clarity and the starting point to develop something of TRUE VALUE for the recreational cyclist. So there you have it, a journey begun, but ‘boy-o-boy’ I had no idea as to the size and scale of what I was getting myself into. Consider this, I had no Facebook experience, I had never heard of Instagram, I had no, and I mean NO I.T. experience at all, an iphone was a waste of time and money and “You Tube” …what the heck…who would even use that… hmmmm that was my beginnings. Now fast forward to 2016 and I now cover over 400 facebook pages a week, to paint the picture a little, just imagine a reuters screen for cycling going 24/7 feeding in all, and I do mean all…’warts-n-all’ of cycling trivia to the outstanding rich cycling content. There is a whole lot more I could prattle on about, but I am picking that you have got the point by now? My Vision was strong, crystal clear, for some reason unknown to all who know me and myself included, I just stayed on task even though I had no idea how I could make it happen…the answer as it all unfolds was to make a hell of a lot of mistakes publicly, i.e you were all my guinea pigs, and somehow you have stuck by me, with increasing subscribers and the almighty LIKES!… I really do have to thank you all from the bottom of my heart, as you have been my consistent tailwind along with my need to succeed at what I had set out to achieve. Necessity really has been the driver of my invention with my skill levels exceeding beyond what I thought was possible. The one victim of this has actually been my cycling, as where I was out at 5am 6 days per week now its 5am at the keyboard, although I hold out strong optimism that I will be back on the pedals once again.
a “Seamless Mobile Platform” that provides a Fast Fact Format for over 300 ‘Recreational’ Events available @ your finger tips 24/7 – Fast and Simple and evolutionary in nature. “The Central Info Hub” of all ‘Recreational Cycling’ – A fantastic resource for the everyday cyclist, which has now expanded to include hard and soft resource support to Events, Clubs and Organisations. Success in this whole new concept has accelerated with the uptake in our specifically tailored ‘Connected Multi Media Community Platforms’ for cycling. These are pre made platforms all set to ‘plug n play’ – named eventFAST and clubFAST are very sticky and success has been realised via value exchange for Cyclists, Community and Businesses looking for quality interactions. Memberships and Event registrations are the life blood, with CycleEvents learning and adapting fast to the needs of the everyday recreational cyclists…This whole cycling community thingy really is a significant and generational evolutionary event that we are all lucky enough to be part of… as I always say… whether you are a wanna-be cyclist, a business, a family or organisation like Rotary or Lions … jump on… there’s plenty of room to ride.

The Pocket Rocket was the next cab off the rank, an emag connecting the dots delivering the connections, experiences and opportunities to you every Thursday – it is light, fun, factual and mobile centric for the everyday ‘Cyclists’, Events, Clubs and Organisations.
Pocket Rocket Magazine
Local and relevant is vitally important to our vision and purpose, this keeps the whole community well grounded ‘in the now” ensuring relevance and solid value exchange. It is us cyclists at the everyday recreational ‘Grass Roots’ level that drive this amazing kaleidoscope, a mass social peloton everyday of the week…an environment that is dynamic, fun and very fast growing across all communities within Australia and New Zealand. What we have in people, landscapes and opportunities is the envy of the world…and they are watching!

What an absolutely amazing bunch of people cyclists are…how lucky are we.

What ‘We’ / I do is fast and factual, but never at the expense of fun!

Cycling binds us as individuals, it binds us as communities and that is very unique and powerful.
