OTEC provides top class, professional services for cyclists of all levels, mechanical support, sales, repairs, training, coaching, event support and corporate services.

I work with individuals, professional cycle teams, world class athletes, local businesses and both National and international organisations such as the NHS and GE healthcare.

I offer a mobile service and also a new shop based at Halton UK (Tennis Centre) – fantastic parking and a great place to get a coffee or a bite to eat if you are waiting for a repair.

I sell new and also quality second hand bikes, many of these come direct from teams and are unique and often have some history – they also represent great value for money!

I run Mountain Bike Instructor Training courses for those aspiring instructors, personal skills coaching for individuals or groups looking to develop their personal skills and can also offer complementary training such as navigation and first aid.

My Background

During my 30 plus year addiction to cycling and bikes, I have cycled all over the world and on every type of bike imaginable. I have met, worked with and cycled with many of the greats from the past and the current crop of world class athletes, most recently working with Norco Factory Racing as a team Mechanic at the UCI world cup.

I have been involved with the cycle trade since finishing school and completing an engineering apprenticeship, which originally started in the motor industry and ended at a local cycle shop.  I learned the trade as an apprentice mechanic and progressed to workshop supervisor and finally became the manager.  At the time I had ambitions to pursue a professional cycling career. However, a serious cycling accident, which resulted in a significant stint in Stoke Mandeville Hospital and 18 month recovery, put a dramatic end to those hopes.

During that period I enrolled in a degree course studying Sports Science and Education. Upon completion of my degree, I earned my coaching and teaching qualifications and subsequently worked as a coach and teacher for almost 20 years.

I returned to the cycling trade full time in 2013 with ATG Training, where I was a trainer, assessor and internal verifier for the Level 2 and 3 engineering apprentice programme and specifically for the CYTEC qualification, which is the only cycle-specific qualification advocated by the Association of Cycle Traders in the UK and internationally. In this role I worked all over the UK and was personally responsible for looking after the market leaders in cycle retail, manufacture and distribution, e.g. Madison/Shimano, Fishers/SRAM, Rutland Cycling, Pedal on and Cycles UK.

I was a speaker at the Cyclex (annual national trade show) in 2013 and was a representative for the National Association of Cycle Traders at ICE bike (Madison/ Shimano trade show) for 3 years. I have a professional support network and access to technical information and training which will ensure I stay at the cutting edge of the industry.
