Velo mate! has come from a lifelong passion for cycling. As a child growing up in rural Shropshire my social life from an early age depended on my being able to ride a bike. My friends all lived in different villages and I would regularly cover double figures of miles over a weekend of visiting them. At university, as for many students the bicycle continued to be my only means of transport facilitating watching sport, beers with mates and sometimes, lectures!
For the last 20 years cycling, alone, socially, with my family, in races has been profoundly more than just a hobby. Alongside my “day job” as a teacher it has been crucial in safeguarding my physical and mental health.
Velo mate! is my mid-life pursuit of the dream. As it grows it will become so much more than a bike repair business. It will become a vehicle for promoting cycling in its huge variety of forms and infecting others with my passion for all things bike!
