Our Team

Sarah Ulmer

Director of nothing in particular
Wheels of choice: a bike with basket for wine and other necessities.

With her unwavering vision, the Cambridge Cycling Festival was born seven years ago; a fun, all-inclusive event in Cambridge that saw more people on bikes through a fun format. Sarah has traveled extensively with her cycling career and she has seen firsthand what a positive impact a cycle-friendly town can have. During lockdown, she gathered her team and the Bicycle Revolution was born!

Penny Thompson

Director of spreading the word!
Wheels of choice:  a very comfortable, sensible town bike.

Penny has been in the game of making others look good for over 25 years, and it just so happens that she too is a fan of two wheels. She has also been involved with the Cambridge Cycling Festival right from day dot.

“ No matter where you live or how far you cycle or how fast you pedal, anyone and everyone can do it”

Jen Palmer

Director of many things!
Wheels of choice: When Jen is feeling the need for speed, she leans towards a Specialised Tarmac, but when it’s a more leisurely roll through town, it’s the town bike with the beautiful panniers for the french stick and paté! 

Originally from Ottawa, Canada, Jen together with ‘cycling mad’ hubby Craig are Cambridge locals. The family are passionate cyclists and you'll often see Jen and Craig out together on the road or on the Velodrome.

Miff McDiarmid

Miss Moneybags
Wheels of choice: Alternates between a tidy downhill mountain bike and a $99 Trademe commuter to get from A to B

BRC's Treasurer is found most weekends adventuring with her family (or drinking wine and eating cheese) in and out of our town, Miff is a keen MTBer and commuter with a husband, 2 kids, a dog (called Kat), and a cat. 

Neil Gibb

The Ideas Man
Wheels of choice: Roadie - discovered joys of Cambridge country roads in recent years. 

Our friend Neil as a number of years on the bike, under his belt and he's brilliant at pulling ideas out of the air when we need a bit of perspective! Neil’s motto: Ride smart not hard.

Kellie Pearson

Cycling Advocate Queen
Wheels of choice: Roadie - discovered the joys of Cambridge country roads in recent years. 

Kellie loves the variety of cycling; from bike packing adventures across the country and team events with friends, to road racing with her local club and challenging herself at the velodrome.

Her career spans experience in stakeholder engagement and planning, with advocacy for safe cycling for kids to get to school.
