My main qualification is my love of the
bicycle. I really enjoy the bicycles complex simplicity
and the freedom they give us and so I love making them look good and
fly as well as they can.
But be assured! I also have a City & Guilds Level 1&2 Cycle Industry qualification in Cycle Mechanics, with around 3 years teaching experience, delivering the same said City & Guilds level 1&2 mechanics courses, and 9 years and counting, delivering one day maintenance classes for companies and private clients.
I am provisionally certified as an NSI, (National Standard Instructor), for delivering cycle training. (now known as Bikeabilty)
Fully insured and currently over 9 years professional experience as a cycle mechanic and teacher.
got into the bikes mechanics around the age of 10, after getting a
racing bike for my birthday. Looking after my bike was fun, but I grew
up in a small
village with miles of fields between things and so it also meant that if
I didn’t learn to look after it, I would have to walk.
later after hearing the quote, "If you find a job you enjoy, you’ll
never have to work again." I tried hard to work out what that was; me
thinking my vocation was around art, philosophy and counselling; the
idea of being a cycle mechanic was an unexpected surprise.
I had recently returned to my old hobby of fixing up bikes which led to some cycle touring around 2010 and then later I met a guy who had a load of retro bikes that he wanted restoring for a project of his.... and so one thing led to another.... and Cyclic Nature was born.
I kind of believe the job found me! But that quote certainly helped.
P.S. Still very into the field of mental/spiritual health and long philosophical conversations over coffee... just saying ;-)
