    This Revolution doesn't run itself!

    Ride Boss

    Steve is the boss on the bike. He's a former pro cyclist but don't be fooled, he's still winning races when he's not too busy coaching and running cycling tours. Steve's the one that makes sure we're fit to ride, decides where we go, how we ride on the day, and keeps us safe and happy out there on the road during the Pain Revolution ride.



    Medical Boss

    Kal is a sports and exercise medicine physician with an obsessive interest in pain biology, models of care and the powerful ways in which context influences outcomes.
