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!
