About The Bike Doctor

I have worked in the cycle industry for over 20 years in a few different ways. I started my mechanical journey in Leeds biggest independent cycle shop, Freewheel in the 90’s. That’s where I first learnt the art of fettling and started the Cytech training in cycle mechanics. In my time there I learnt a lot and quickly progressed through to a level 3 Cytech technician under the watchful eye of the head mechanic. After 3 happy years there and when the time was right I left Freewheel to join Halfords as a cycle specialist and head up their venture into the more higher end of both road and mountain biking. Over time there as the business grew I trained up an apprentice mechanic to take over the mechanics from me so I could move to a new Store opening up in Kirkstall in north Leeds. After over 4 years with them I wanted a new direction in my bike career.

 I Moved over to the French Alps and lived the dream servicing clients bikes by evening and guiding in the mountains by day. After a very busy few seasons i longed for something more solid. I opened bike doctor in 2011. Bike Doctor is now 6 years old and has grown from a mobile service to a full size retail store. I still love making my passion my career.
