Our Melbourne Fitzroy North Cell Bikes store recently had the pleasure of having a very prominent guest stop by today (Friday 4th April).

This guest is a well known NRL player with two premierships, five State of Origin series wins, three club best and fairest awards, 14 Test caps, and the coveted Golden Boot Award as the Rugby League Player of the Year.

He is regarded by many as the finest full back of any era and some are now pondering if he might be the greatest player the game has seen.

Canberra Raider Rides a Cell Bike (in thongs!) Who is it?

Joels Edwards Canberra Raiders and his Cell Bikes Phantom

 

Happy snap and ‘thumbs up’ from a member of the Canberra Raiders on their Cell Bikes Phantom. Known for his damaging defence, work rate and deceptive footwork on the field, and for his great attitude, team work and work ethic off it. This Raider is a renowned ‘hit man’ in Canberra’s defensive structure.

Off the field, this gentleman is well known for his unique sense of humour and is featured frequently on the Raiders website in a fortnightly feature titled “Red Alert.”

Who is it? Go to our Facebook page with your answer and one lucky person gets a voucher!

Can you ride 69 hours in the saddle (and counting) in the last four weeks? Our latest Strava Winner does!

Strava Club Winner

 

Our latest Cell Strava Club winner is 1/2 man, 1/2 animal = manimal.

Why is our latest winner a ‘manimal’? When you have 69hrs of riding for the past 4 weeks, and the 4th week has only just started, you’re definitely not a normal ‘mortal’.

Strava Doc Stu

 

 

Congrats to ‘doc stu’!
