Botswana Cycling Team.

We were delighted to welcome to the workshop riders, tech’s and support staff from the Commonwealth Games Cycling Team of Botswana last week. 

They had been searching for some space where they could maintain the team’s bikes and having had no luck elsewhere in Cardiff, chanced upon us after seeing our sign from the road. 

Fielding riders in the men’s road race,  time trial and MTB cross country their technician had a few different bikes to look after and we were happy to help with the use of a bench, stand and tools. 

Of course everyone got on like a house on fire and once Nic mentioned he organises rides for his group VeloAdventures, team manager David had committed him to leading two weekend rides for the athletes.  Details of which will come in a later blog.

A chance meeting which turned to be really rather wonderful! We wish them all the best!

“We visited today and picked a bike for my 6 year-old. He got to try it out and you fixed the brakes as they were a bit squeaky! Very covid safe! Excellent bike and my boy loves it. Great it has a 3-month warranty too!”

I’d just like to say a massive ‘Thank You’ to the boys and girls at Cardiff Cycle workshop. They’ve done absolute wonders for my bike over the years! It’s was an old heavy Peugeot which I bought from new in about 1990. Although I used it regularly, it was getting too heavy for me, so the team changed the wheels for ones that were much lighter; put some super duper tyres on them, and on top of that, replaced the old hard saddle for a brand new very comfortable one. I make sure that I get my bike serviced regularly with them too. Such a friendly bunch too-always time for a chat. There is nothing they don’t know about bikes. Highly recommended!

“Came away a lot more confident with attempting to build a wheel. The course was run in a relaxed manner and no question was too much for Jon to answer. Look forward to my next course.”

“Great place to go to get yourself a bike. No need to spend hundreds just get one second hand. Good communication, they even adjust the seat and handlebars to suit your height etc. My partner is very pleased with her bike and it looks brand new! Highly recommended.”

“Sustainability has worked with CTW successfully for a number of years, with sessions every month on Campus. They provide bike servicing for staff, students and the local community as part of our free Repair Café events. It’s a service to all to promote sustainable cycle travelling to Campus and the benefits of repair. They are so knowledgeable and as well as fixing on site they provide great friendly honest advice.”
