“I’ve been into cycling on and off from a young age. BMX was the thing through my early years then I moved onto mountain bikes in my 20’s and 30’s. But I really got the bug for road bikes around 2001. I loved the suffering but always thought I struggled with comfort and took longer to recover than everyone else. That’s when I had my first bike fit, which changed my whole cycling experience. A few years later, I got a sales assistants job at Climb on Bikes and pushed to get the opportunity to get trained as a bike fitter. In 2013, I qualified as a level 1 BG fit technician and in 2016 got my qualification to use the Retül bike fit system and qualified up to a Level 2 BG fit technician.
As SKY (now Ineos Grenadiers) always say – “always believe in better ”. That is my approach when bike fitting. I have developed a passion for making cycling a better experience for all cyclist, from hybrids to road endurance, and from road race to TT set ups. The feedback has been so rewarding, which has given me the ambition to set up my own business and focus all my attention to bike fitting.”
