Meet the crew

Meagan aka Co-President

As a former journalist and current PR specialist, Meagan’s love for mountain biking was ignited when she moved to the mountain biking-mecca of Squamish, B.C, Canada. Since moving to Wellington in 2011 and having a bit more of a work-life balance, she’s thrown herself into mountain biking full tilt – partly because of the awesome tracks and partly because of the amazing friends she’s made through the club!

After three years as a ride guide and two on the crew, Meagan decided to help take on the lead role in 2015. As Co-Presidente, Meagan is responsible for keeping up with 'all things cycling' around Wellington, putting together the Weekly Revolver, helping respond to Revolve's ever-growing inbox and planning Revolve’s two women-only events – Women of Dirt and Super V.

Keen to contribute to mountain biking across the board, she also manages communications for Trail Fund NZ and coaches the MTBers of tomorrow through WORD – Wellington's after school youth mountain bike programme – and recently became a Juliana ambassador. When not writing or biking, Meagan can on the volleyball court, skiing or catching up with friends over a glass of vino.

Abbie aka Co-President

Abbie may be a miniature version of a real person, but her energy comes in tetra-pack concentrate.  Joining the Army at 18 gave her a firm dose of "girls rule the world" attitude and might also explain her penchant for order and leather boots…

Abbie discovered mountain biking when she landed in Wellington around six years ago and realised that two wheels are better than two legs. Her favourite place to ride in the Wellington area is the Wainuiomata Trail Project because of its beautiful natural trails, opportunities for progression and gorgeous native bush.

She works as a policy manager in the environment sector and coaches for WORD in the summer months. She also love backcountry skiing, tramping, climbing and am learning to surf and kayak.

Del aka Secretary

Del started mountain biking around 2012 in the Hawkes Bay, with almost no biking experience. Her good friends have been mountain biking for years and started to get back into the sport - it became a the thing to do. She suffers severely from FOMO (fear of missing out), so just had to buy a bike when it became clear that mountain biking will become part of many adventures and weekend activities. Now, she’s a self-confessed “not so sporty” person who has grown to love mountain biking!

Del moved to Wellington in 2018 and joined Revolve because she liked the philosophy and culture, and to meet new friends. She pretty much ended up on the crew straight away!

Off her bike, Del is an Occupational Therapist, specialising in vocational rehabilitation. She works for an NGO a national role so spends lots of time on the road.

Laura aka Memberships

For the last ten years Laura's life was pretty much about mountain biking. So much so that when a job came up in Rotovegas, she jumped at the idea and helped establish Revolve Rotorua. Living right next to the Whakarewarewa forest meant that Laura could sneak in a cheeky detour into the forest on the way to work and back home again.

In February 2016, after a miscalculated attempt at trying to fly off a cliff and a helicopter trip to Middlemore hospital, Laura is now developing her skills on a new set of wheels.

She is now mastering the wheelchair wheely and hops and drops on curb crossings. While she loves watching Danny Macaskill's latest tricks, her real role model is Martyn Ashton.

Although Laura's legs are temporarily hibernating she is still super keen to encourage women to get into riding and support them to improve their skills.

And she's just bought a mountain bike!


Claire aka Web and Comms Manager

After spending most of her life hating bikes with a passion, Claire got into mountain biking in 2016 (to try save a doomed relationship!). She quickly discovered the formula for the number of bikes one should own, and now has a wall of pretty ornaments for road, gravel and dirt.

Claire joined Revolve to find more girls to ride with, and enjoys the community and amazing people that make up Revolve. Her favourite place to ride in Wellington is Makara, preferably by night. Living north of Wellington, she's excitedly waiting for the development of Colonial Knob!

As well as mountain biking, Claire is a keen triathlete. She's an officer in the Army, and enjoys exploring the rest of NZ and further afield on two wheels.

Dee aka Trails Liaison Manager

Dee is a committed mountain biker. Having tried road riding it was the crunch of gravel under the tyres, the mud and challenges of riding over diverse terrain kept pulling her back to her mountain bike. 

From her own experience Dee knows that riding with other women develops riding skills, introduces people to a whole new bunch of like minded best riding buddies. So she now aspires to have women riding with women more often.

If you’re out for a ride and a women randomly approaches you with a story about Revolve, it just might be her!

Cushla aka Merchandise 

Since Cushla bought her mountain bike a few years ago, cycling has had a positive impact on her life.

She believes that mountain biking isn’t about being scared all the time, getting left behind because the rest of the group are fast. What it is about is having fun – with friends, your partner, and like-minded groups of riders or on your own. Getting out and giving it a go is what really makes the difference – being good (or good enough!) will follow on: a by-product of just enjoying yourself.

It’s one of her missions as the new merchandise chick to make sure you all look AMAZEBALLS whilst out riding with other like-minded women and sharing all the positive benefits that Revolve has to offer.

Sarah aka Co-Road Ride Coordinator

Sarah was an 80’s kid so riding bikes is part of her DNA. From popping wheelies around the Polytechnic Campus down the road to kamikaze races down the hill in the back paddock where the only way to avoid hitting the fence was to bail off, she’s spent most of her life on bikes.

Sarah got her first ‘real’ mountain bike in 2001 when she moved to the West Coast to work for DOC and started exploring the forestry roads and back country tracks behind Hokitika. In 2011 she got her first road bike to train for the Coast to Coast (a drunken dare that became a 5 year obsession) and in 2016 branched out and added a TT bike to complete the collection which at last count numbered 6 (the correct number of bikes to own is N+1 right?!)

Sarah work for Parks, Sport and Recreation at Wellington City Council so getting people active is both her job and her hobby. She loves being active and also runs (badly), swims (slightly better), white water kayaks (not enough) and has recently got into climbing which is heaps of fun. She also loves tramping and tries and get out in the hills as much as possible.  

Nicola aka Co-Road Ride Coordinator

Nicola joined Revolve in 2014 after getting a bike to ride to work, and was looking for other people to ride with. After getting over the shock of 8am starts on Saturday, Nicola started riding regularly with Revolve, and loved the companionship and support the club offered, and has made some amazing friends. Nicola the stepped up to become a ride guide, the joined the crew as Road Ride Guide Co-coordinator. Nicola believes in getting more women into cycling, and Revolve is perfect for that, with it’s non-competitive nature.

Nicola works as a Building Services Draftsperson, and lives in the central city with her partner Richard, who has become a keen E-biker after major surgery to replace a heart valve. Nicola is also a self confessed cat lady, and is dedicated staff to two beautiful Burmese cats.
