Trip Organizer

Beginning 2009 Colin has organized and led 24 trips in Sulawesi, Bali and Flores. Due to a medical condition he no longer participates in the rides. However he is still fully involved in their organization. In this context he work very closely with Ms. Irna Thaib (administration) and Mr. Ucok Musa (cycling).

Trip Manager

Ms. Irna Thaib (called mbak Inong) has been working with Colin since 1997, in the field of Education Project Management (marketing, procurement, administration and financial control). She helped run the first Cycle Sulawesi trip in 2009. In 2017 she managed the third Trans Flores trip.
Her management efficiency usually ensures good writing outcomes for groups.
She has now pretensions to be fluent in English but she is trying hard.

Trip Mechanic

Pak Ucok Pasaka is from Toraja and has been working with Colin since 2010. Over the years he has developed an appetite for cycling and has develop cycle mechanical skills. These days on trip he often place three roles - driver, mechanic and sweep, and he's english more than passable. He has been responsible for reconditioning the hire bikes and he will play the role of sweep on this trip.



Pak Aco is one of the most experience driver in Sulawesi. He's English is good and he has driven for Colin on 15 trips.


Pak Marianus from Maumere has been driving for 20 years and been driving with Colin since 2014. He is becoming familiar with the quirks of Western cyclists and knows the best stop spots.
Pak Gusty also from Maumere has been driving since 2010, and this is his first assignment with cyclists.
