Meet the Gang
The Boss Lady

Hannah then left to complete her degree in (Bachelor of Business in Tourism Management) before, she set off to explore Australia and the rest of the world. Hannah has spent the last 10 years in the corporate industry both here in Australia and London and like many Hannah burnt out. During Hannah’s travels overseas, she would take time out from the corporate world and spend time working as tour guide, taking groups to various European Festivals.
Having recently returned to Australia, she has decided to make Newcastle her home. Hannah was quickly reminded by the beauty and history of the town, and saw the potential of what Newcastle has to offer and how she could be part of it. This lead to Pineapple Pedals opening here in Newcastle. Hannah has since taken the leap from the corporate world back into tourism and hopes that everyone who rides with Pineapple Pedals enjoys it as much as she does.

One of the Toolshed Member's
Hammer lives life to the fullest. She enjoys a good time and will make sure you enjoy yourself as well. People mistake her for a party animal (partially true) but trust me her heart is full and will take you under her pedal if you are feeling uneasy. She will encourage you to relax and enjoy your day out. When she does get with Drill, these two will allow you to let your hair down and take you on a fun field adventure.
The Scottish One
Drill also lives life to the fullest and has traveled far from the Scottish boarders to come help explore the Aussie soil. She too can be mistaken for a party animal, but rest assure she too will look after you, she is some kind of Dr!! Only thing to watch out is when riding Drill her reversing skills can be bit a shady and you end up on the edge. Hammer is there to help Drill as Drill is to help Hammer.

Her smile is infectious and she will even make you smile and show you how to laugh in the stickiest of situations. If you want a fun field day out pushing the boundaries, then Wang is your girl.
