Since last winter I had planned a number of epic rides for 2018, only for them all to have failed one way or another. But before we ended up with our epic ride: Coventry to Holland, there were a number of events and rides being planned for this year. The first was London to Paris ride for Myton Hospice, was a friend who asked if I could join and be a riding mechanic for their group.

How to look after your hands when maintaining bikes?
Working as a cycle mechanic is usually a very pleasant experience, one gets to work on a large variety of cycles from clients. Hand maintenance is an essential part of my work, as I get MTB, full suss and rigid, road bikes, leisure bikes, kids bike. Some very premium bikes and some not so premium.
