Our goal is to grow our presence to become well respected and self-sufficient motorcycle bloggers/content creators, getting our hands on the latest bikes, gear and technology whilst giving honest reviews on the products, hopefully, have some fun giveaways and competitions along the way. We love building good working relationships with companies, brands and people and can’t give enough thanks and praise to those that have helped us already.
We are two brothers who in 2016 developed an obsession with motorcycles and everything to do with bikes. We always had an interest in bikes but never to the plunge to actually ride.
It all started off at an early age. The old man used to race lightweight class two-stroke machines in the late 70’s and early 80’s. The next wild adventure was to start racing hovercraft. Powered by 250cc liquid cooled two strokes, it was great full throttle fun. Many nights were spent rebuilding engines on the kitchen table ready for the next weekend’s action. This ended when Alex was old enough to drive and his passion quickly turned to 4 wheels with a keen interest in Japanese turbocharged vehicles. For some reason in 2015 he decided to sell up all the cars and masses of parts acquired and swap 4 wheels for two. Ben, however, was never interested in motorcycles or cars. A very keen sportsman playing rugby, Ju Jitsu and Judo most nights of the week and weekends took up most of his time. It was as Alex got into bikes that Ben decided it was time to learn as well and what a great time to do it. We both decided to start blogging about our experiences, and we started our social media accounts, @Ridewithpeaks was born.
Since then Alex has passed his full UK A licence and is currently completing IAM advanced riding qualifications, and Ben Has passed his UK A2 licence.
Between us, we have a great skillset. We both enjoy riding bikes and photography, a great combination together. Ben has an enormous creative streak, with photo and video editing, and website design. Alex has a technical mind so enjoys getting down and dirty tinkering and fixing the bikes. He also enjoys creative writing and manages the social media profiles, giving him the edge when interacting with people.
As of October 2017, Ben headed off to university to study Biomedical Science, so his riding is on hold, although you may still find him wandering around with the camera! Alex is resisting the temptation to turn the SV into a mini-twins racer without Ben knowing.
