Bike-mad Islington resident!
Raced MTB Downhill throughout 90s-00s semi-pro.
Race Enduro now (getting too old for DH!) and have road and mountain bikes.
Work professionally in marketing/client relations for a large leading global law firm and am involved - pro bono - with several big initiatives in the cycling world:

  • I am the UK Trustee for the Qhubeka Charity and handle all European marketing, social media, press relations, partnerships (we are the current Tour de France charity partner) and donor engagement (London Revolution etc) projects.
  • I am the European Brand Ambassador for Team Africa Rising - a Non-Profit focused on building high level professional racing standards across the African continent. We work with several National Cycling Federations to ensure their infrastructure and strategy is at international level, arrange bike and equipment sponsorships or low cost deals with major cycling brands and the promotion of up and coming riders to leading World Tour and Continental teams. Our biggest successes to date are the creation of the well-known Team Rwanda Cycling, the rise of Team Nigeria and helping facilitate the contracts for several top level Ethiopian, Eritrean and Rwandan riders into pro teams. I have been Directeur Sportif for teams at the World Champs, World Cup MTB, The RideLondon Classic and several UK National Series races. I also handle all European media relations and social media content for the team also.

    Hi all,

    After a three week hiatus (to recharge and get a bit of time in green scenery) we are back and offering free bike fixes in the N1 (Islington) area! So far we have fixed and serviced over 250 bikes during lockdown and awesome N1-based folk have donated over £13,000 to the Qhubeka bike charity!

    Qhubeka is a UK registered charity and gets children and women on bikes in South Africa and across Africa to get them better access to education, health, jobs, amenities and a brighter future. Our motto is #BicyclesChangeLives 🖐

    The service is free of charge (not including parts) and if folk want to give a donation to our charity, all good! If you have a £50 Bike Repair voucher (the new government scheme) we are registered with them also now so can accept these too. We aim to turn your bike around in 24hrs or less! Certain parts can now be sourced from several distributors of many major brands, within reason.

    Send me a message on here or Whatsapp on 07741536809 to book your bike in!

    Here is a brief film we made with the Tour de France (we are their current lead charity) about what we do:

    Thanks Sean, happy to help anyone that needs a tweak, a service or anything more substantial maybe... Electronic transmissions and major disc brake bleeds are tricky right now but waiting for some new kit from Park Tools so might be able to offer the latter soon.

    Qhubeka UK is now a brand ambassador for Muc-Off and Park Tools so I can also guarantee that bikes are getting a 5* treatment too!
