Lew Lawton: Cycling Expert, Public Speaker, Radio Presenter, Explorer

From an extensive background in engineering, stemming from a successful career in the British Army with the Royal Signals, to working with BT, Lew’s innate ability to modify, build or repair has been given a renewed lease of life through his passion for all things cycling. As well as being a Cytech accredited cycle mechanic and owner of the Mobile Cycle Medic business in Swindon, Lew is also an engaging speaker and one of the ‘Soul’ DJs on Swindon 105.5FM. He also keeps a lot of the technical equipment “on the Air”

Introducing Lew Lawton:

“Thank you for your excellent talk yesterday which our members thoroughly enjoyed. Your presentation style, with pictures, pieces of historical communications equipment, not to mention telephone-associated popular music, really brought the subject to life.”
Probus Club of R W B,
“Just a note, to add to the thanks for your informative and entertaining talk to the club yesterday. It was clear, from the questions, that the talk aroused much interest, and memories of their own visit by some members.  Many thanks, and looking forward your next visit in August.”

“Once again you have given us (The Friendly Club)a fascinating and informative talk.   It will make watching  programmes about the Shetland Isles so much more interesting in the future.
