I still remember the feeling when I first rode my new bike. The sun was shining and the weather was a bit chilly. As I started to push the pedals, I felt the wind of freedom and the fresh air on my cheeks and started to speed. The quicker I rode, the more liberated I felt. I could ride ANYWHERE without being stuck in the afternoon traffic jam and from the very beginning, I loved the feeling of not having to worry about the fuel level in the car or the joys of hope that no one parked in my place in front of my house. As I was progressing to my destination, I realized that I actually left my problems at home and after a very long time, I was FREE. Loved it. It felt like I was re-born.
I was enjoying how the oxygen was flowing to my brain and started to acclimatise to this new careless feeling, when all of the sudden, the quality of the road changed. I managed to survive the first few obstacles, however after a massive pothole I fell off with my bike. My first wheel became deformed and I could not continue my journey. I remembered I saw a nearby bicycle shop window during my journey and I took my bike to this very first bike mechanic -where the repair took a very long time and cost loads of money. That is when I realised that is not right. The joy of cycling should not be so time consuming and expensive. So, I learnt a few bits and bobs from different bike mechanics for few years that improved my existing mechanic skills (as a child I regularly disassembled everything that got into my hands and then re-assembled them, to drive my lovely parents crazy!). Then I wanted to be 1000% qualified to service bikes responsibly so I successfully completed the Level 3 Diploma in Cycle Maintenance in Cycle Systems Academy...and now I provide the repair service that I expected to receive back at the old times: I carry out warranty repair work to a high standard, in a short period of time and having a mobile service awards me with the luxury that I can service bikes everywhere...in the shop...at your home...or wherever you are.
Don't let your bike set you boundaries, instead... let your body dictate the only limit how far you can ride. Enjoy cycling
