Brett and Judy took over Pacific Cycle Tours in April of 2018 — taking the reins from Simone and Ralph Freeman, who ran the company for 25 years.
Brett grew up in Colorado, spending his days skiing, snowboarding, camping, hiking and fishing. Judy is a born and bred New Zealander, growing up with the Canterbury Plains and Port Hills as her playground. They met at Canterbury University in Christchurch in the late 90’s, fell in love and decided to explore the world together. After travelling through Europe, America and South East Asia, they settled in Sydney, Australia for 18 years, where they enjoyed successful corporate careers and were blessed with the arrival of 2 daughters.
After so many years in the big smoke, they wanted a more outdoors lifestyle for their family and decided to return to Christchurch, New Zealand where they could turn their dream into a reality.
Brett’s background is in financial services, working in multi-national companies with experience in operations and credit, and Judy worked in Publishing, where she devised publicity campaigns and toured with some of the most well-known authors in the world. Together, their love for the outdoors, travel and exploration combined with their corporate backgrounds, makes them perfectly aligned to running Pacific Cycle Tours.
Brett and Judy continue to provide the outstanding and personal service Pacific Cycle Tours customers expect and enjoy.
