Workshop Coordinator and Instructor

Biography

As coordinator of Cardiff Cycle Workshop since we began in 2010 I have gained experience of many different bikes, as well as qualifying as a Velotech Platinum and Cytech Level 3 technician along the way.

I have been obsessed with bikes since I was a kid, when my Grandfather used to take me to the events he would organise with his cycling club. I do a lot of riding, mostly off-road these days as I am less fond of mixing it with fast moving traffic than I used to be. For this you’ll find me aboard my new Surly Midnight Special adventure bike or Stanton Sherpa 29er. Other members of the fleet include an audax bike and a commuter. All in steel, I just like the way it rides!

“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.”

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!

“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.”
