Not sure about you, but before I could drive I would spend any spare cash I had on parts for my bike. Unlike a lot of cherished cars, it would get used daily without fail too.

For a few of our team, some things have never changed, and although they are now older with driving licences (and houses, kids etc) they still get their kicks from two-wheeled pedal power.

What’s more, they’ve found the perfect way to combine two hobbies in one. Drive to the top of the hill in your VW (typically from the Volkswagen Commercial back catalogue) and then ride down as fast as you can!

Dress for the job

Keen to support our staff we had some custom MTB jerseys produced for us to wear when out riding and participating in competitions too. Thanks to the team at AntiNatural for sorting both the design and the production of these for us.

Meet the Team: Neil

Neil works as our Transporter Product Specialist.  He’s responsible for instigating new parts for T25, T4 and T5 and of course keeping an eye on the products we already list too. Currently, Neil drives a modern Caddy Maxi, but previously piloted a T4 Caravelle that he restored himself. Neil takes his riding seriously and can often be found competing at events around the South of England – sometimes scoring a podium too.

Meet the team: Tim

Tim is Neil’s brother and heads up our Returns Department. (Did you know we offer 365-day returns?) He’s got a Mk3 VW Caddy for his workhorse and a Superbike for the summer. He’s also partial to competition too and it’s fair to say sibling rivalry is high between the Kemp brothers!

Meet the team: Sean

Sean works with Tim in our Returns Dept. and along with MTB and MX enjoys restoring stationary engines in his spare time. He drives a T4 panel van daily and his wife owns a Bay Window Campervan that they use for holidays. Sean doesn’t compete in MTB but does enjoy racing Motocross when he can.

Meet the Team: Simon

You may recognise Simon from the article we produced about him and his T5 here. Along with fishing, in his spare time, Simon enjoys mountain biking and participating in obstacle endurance races like the Warrior Run. Simon is our Warehouse Manager and has worked for Heritage for over 15 years.

If you enjoy getting out on two wheels let us know – and keep an eye out for these guys on the hills and trails near you!
