I love bikes. I love riding them, I love cleaning them and I love fixing them. That’s why I went on a Bike Maintenance course to learn proper skills to keep my own bikes in tip top condition. With my new found skills I wanted to get more practice and Bike Revolution provided the perfect venue to hone these skills. The mechanics have shown me different ways to apply my knowledge on bikes of all shapes and sizes. Volunteering there has been more rewarding than I expected. Taking bikes and refurbishing them into fixed and rideable machines is incredibly satisfying. Some of the donated bikes are in good condition and just need a service, whilst others present more of a challenge to return to a road worthy condition. It’s these bikes that I really get a chance to get my teeth into and oily hands to boot. Knowing that one of the bikes I have fixed has been sold and will be enjoyed again makes me really happy.
Everyone at Outfit Moray and Bike Revolution has made me feel welcome and part of the team. All are truly dedicated to this great charity, professional to a fault and have a great sense of humour. I always look forward to my next day volunteering and the challenges it will bring.
