MiniPips and Rich


A father and son team taking on adventures. Minipips is Tom, a boy who loves cycling. He takes his dad Rich, he too enjoys riding bikes and other outdoors stuff, with him on loads of adventures. Together they have ticked off a few editions of Strathpuffer 24 hour mountain bike race. Cycled 2000 miles across France and back over the summer holidays. Raced the Dirty Reiver 200 and, well just cycling loads. Tom was also featured in one of our Mountain Journal Shorts filmed by Dom Bush, which is picking up a multitude of awards. It’s probably the best introduction as to his enthusiasm for cycling. Together they launched the journey of our first Sonder Cahoot tandem.
