I’ve always been active and throughout school I was involved in all of the usual sports; football, tennis, running, swimming. I enjoyed them but wouldn’t say I was passionate about any of them. Then at the age of 14 I discovered that I really, really enjoyed riding my bike. As a cyclist you can compete on your own or as a team. It’s not only physically demanding but the tactics give your mind a work out too. You can train/compete indoors or get out and about amongst stunning scenery. I was fortunate enough to live next door to the one and only Shane Sutton (Head Coach GB & Team Sky). My introduction to competitive cycling was travelling in the team car with him, handing out bottles to the riders. The sport really caught hold of me and I got my first race bike a local hand built Poyner Cyclo Cross bike and started sriously training. By the age of 18 I was representing my country, was regional champion on the road, track and CX. Those days are now long behind me but I’m still mad keen on cycling. When you race your machine is a extension of you. You know it inside out. When I left competitive cycling I went on to work for an international sports firm, managing the bikes department and workshop. My work history took a departure from bikes when I relocated to the NE from the Midlands but my personal life did not. There are some amazing routes to cycle in the North East, particularly throughout Northumberland and along the coast. And so now I find myself returning to my first love, surrounding myself with awesome two wheeled machines. I am determined to treat every single bike I work on with the absolute care and attention I would if it were my own machine. I hope to impress my customers and exceed their expectations, to achieve loyalty through trust and high standards. So whether you cycle competitively, for fun, to keep fit or simply to commute to work, I hope to see you along the way. Dave
