The Team

Andrew Phillips - Founder


Orb creator, and Director of Blockhaus Cycles, Andrew has been dodging taxis, buses, and HGVs in Manchester and London for around a decade but it was whilst cycling across the Kalahari desert in Namibia that he finally decided it was time to go all in and create The Orb.

Rob Gardiner


Website builder, kit tester, and first signing for Team Orb Racing. Rob has cycled on five continents, most recently riding with Andrew from the English Channel to the Black Sea in 14 days. The next challenge is the Cross-Europe World-Record Attempt. Scheduled for summer 2019, sponsored by Orb, and in support of African Parks.

Ruth Linton


Official artist of The Orb, and long suffering provider of sage advice. Ruth’s main interest in bikes is not getting run over by them whilst walking around London.

Jeff Douglas


Official Orb cameraman, and Team Orb Racing member. Jeff spent much of 2017 cycling round London with a GoPro on a b(r)oom attached to his bike filming The Orb for Kickstarter.
