Damien Gooch - Owner

 

A mountains local born and raised in Faulconbridge and attended Faulconbridge Primary and Springwood High. Damien spent most of his childhood bushwalking and riding bikes with his parents who were avid bushwalkers. What got him into the bicycle industry? Damien's last job was for a Tech firm doing business analytics, and he was feeling stuck in a rut, so decided it was time to get involved more with his passion of bikes.

 

 

Melissa Gooch - Wife

 

Another Mountains local born and raised in Springwood attending Springwood Primary & High school. Spent most of her childhood around race cars in an avid racing family. She won lady driver trophies several years running for motorkhana. When not racing Melissa spent rest of her time dancing with LKM. Melissa also works part time as Employee Services Manager at a local community NFP in Hazelbrook. She loves Damien enough to spend her honeymoon exploring the National Parks of the USA, Cycling through frigid waters in Grand Teton, Camping amongst herds of Bison & walking through Grizzly country in Yellowstone, Braving the ridiculous crows & spectacular views of Yosemite, Enjoying the stunning views of Kings Canyon, and camping amongst the amazing trees of Sequoia!

So Who is Nick Then?

Nick Gooch


Damien's father was an avid bushwalker & cyclist. Before the birth of his children he was manager at Paddy Pallin's in Liverpool St. When his daughter was born he had to leave Paddys and take up a job closer to home in Penrith. After a few years working there he started cycling to work from his home in Faulconbridge 53km a day. He became known locally as "the man with the flag" Racking up  over 14,000km annually and just over 4,000 ascents up Lappo. Tragically in July 2003 he was hit and killed by a truck on his way to work.
 

When Damien decided to open the bike shop he couldn't think of a more suitable name for it.
 

The other question we get is why is there no apostrophe in Nicks? Basically its stylistic, it just looked better without!
