Our Aims

Inspiration, information, local engagement >>

Flow Mountain Bike is all about inspiration; through our words, images and videos, we want mountain bikers to find the inspiration to ride more, try something new, travel somewhere fresh and make mountain biking more central to their life. Flow Mountain Bike is here to inform; we want to help mountain bikers make the right decisions by offering the best information, the fairest product testing and the most trusted advice. Flow Mountain Bike supports our local cycling industry; through our Flow Crew program we encourage mountain bikers to engage with their local shops, get behind local events and support local businesses.

Who we are

Passionately obsessed, professionally experienced >>

Chris Southwood and Mick Ross are the co-founders of Flow Mountain Bike. Above all else, we are mountain bikers, passionate about all facets of our sport. We cut our teeth on Sydney’s trails and we’ve followed our obsession all over the world, on all types of bikes. Putting our love for mountain biking at the forefront of everything we do has led us to where we are today: Australia’s most respected, recognised and trusted mountain bike journalists. Between us we have amassed over 25 years of experience in the cycling industry; we’ve wrenched, worked the retail floor, imported, distributed, coached and much more. And we’ve created Flow Mountain Bike because we care about the sport and we want to see it grow and flourish.

Our print magazine is of the highest quality, with a large 300x230mm size, premium grade paper stock, and clean, mature design. Flow Mountain Bike magazine is the kind of publication that readers will retain for years to come. Supporting local shops is important to us, so Flow Mountain Bike magazine is available through bike shops as well as newsagencies. Bike shops who wish to stock the magazine receive a highly discounted price and will be listed as a stockist on FlowMountainBike.com. For those who’d rather a digital format, Flow Mountain Bike magazine is available for download to suit all current tablets, smart phones and digital readers. Our digital version is also enhanced with embedded video, audio and extra photography not found in our print magazine.
