Meet Ross, one of our Expert Cytech Trainers

Posted on in Business News , Cycles News

In the first of an occasional series of features, we are delighted to introduce you to Ross, an expert trainer in Glasgow, and one of the most recent trainers to join the Cytech family.

Ross

Ross has always loved cycling but started doing work on his own bike just before lockdown. His skills just grew from there. He’s now been a bike mechanic for four years and has had lots of experience training bike shop employees, army cadets and university students.

Ross enjoys sharing his knowledge and experience so others can enjoy fixing bikes themselves. He is a hands-on kind of trainer. He prefers to demonstrate and then let the trainees try for themselves.

Ross owns four bikes including a Boardman gravel bike, a fixie and a hardtail that’s a mix-up of lots of different parts. His favourite at the moment is his Boardman Full Suspension mountain bike that he puts to the test on one of his favourite trails - the world class 7Stanes mountain biking trails at Mabie Forest in Dumfries.

Ross now delivers Cytech training courses at Bike for Good in Glasgow. 91% of bike mechanics who have taken part in a Cytech course have said they are better at their job as a result. The next course that Ross will be teaching is the Technical One Practical course, which is ideal for early career bike mechanics, on Thursday 11 and Friday 12 July.
