If you needed telling that your local mobile cycle mechanic is also a dedicated cyclist who knows how important it is to have your bike working just right.  I just spent three days riding up Le Mont Ventoux in Provence.  This is one of the Classic climbs on the Tour De France. I rode up from Bedouin on day 1, From Malaucene on Day 2 and from Sault on Day 3.   These pictures wereon day 2 which was the best weather wise.

I have written up my trip blog which is published here along with some professional photos taken on the ascents.

Tailor Made Bike Maint Courses.

I have now run a number of bespoke courses for individuals.  Here is the feedback from the most recent:

 We spent six hours with Lou during which he delivered a course tailored to our specific requests. It was really interesting and Lou explained things well, offering hints and tips from his experiences. The practical demonstrations followed by the opportunity to have-a-go ourselves was particularly useful. Would recommend to anyone wanting to develop their knowledge of bike maintenance / operation.”


Proud to support MacMillan Cancer Support.
