Darran Carpenter


Cycling has given Darran the opportunity to travel the world and represent his country in various cycling disciplines and age categories, developing life long friendships.

Darran started cycling age 10 with his uncle and dreamed of racing after watching the 1989 Tour De France on TV – at which point he was hooked. Fast forward 30 years, and Darran is still fanatical about all aspects of cycling, and is now sharing his extensive cycling knowledge and experience through Rowe & King.

An Aircraft Engineer by day, Darran has developed his own bike fit / aero testing lab in his garage, helping riders to shave up to 40 seconds off heir 10 Mile TT Time overnight.

Given an ideal weekend you are likely to find Darran on a group ride with Friends.
