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.

Any chance anyone has a SeaSucker Komodo bike rack you might lend for a charity event! Guaranteed kept safe and pristine! Comment/DM me to discuss 🖐
Well almost free... :)
In all seriousness, I am servicing, fixing, fettling and replacing parts/upgrading bikes in Islington for no cost except parts (where needed) and a request for a donation to the amazing Qhubeka cycling charity (hope folk know us from being the charity for the Tour de France, the London Revolution, the Cape Epic and also the Team Qhubeka Assos team in the World Tour?)
Essentially, we raise funds to get children and women on bikes in South and Southern Africa to improve their lives through better access to education, healthcare and work. We are currently supplying bikes to key healthcare workers across the region. Check us out on our social media channels for more info or Qhubeka.org
We have fixed 450+ bikes in Islington now, and raised over £16,000!
Drop me a reply on here or WhatsApp to 07741536809 to discuss your bike fix needs! 🖐 #BicyclesChangeLives
have avoided smart trainers/indoor training for many years but with lockdown continuing and everyone I know being on Zwift now, its time.
Anyone got one for sale by any chance?
Anything i should know or avoid??
Soz, going to postpone as not comfortable being out in a group at the moment. My father is 79 and hoping to see him soon and need to be careful. Sorry guys
What’s the rough timing tomorrow? Just planning day one of lockdown-not-lockdown...
Wow! We had no idea if many folk would come and overwhelmed to say we handled 32 bike fixes in 6 flat-out hours! Non-stop mechanic-ing and our volunteers ‘front of house’ were amazing. We will be back next Saturday and the one after, at the Boulevard Market on Islington Square from 11-5pm. Come along! Tell your friends! Free winter cycling gift with all fixes too! 🖐
