I am a Retired pharmacologist and I volunteer in Stockport at CERA Cycloan

After a lifetime of repairing and building bikes I decided to learn how to do it properly and obtained a City & Guilds level 2 mechanic qualification in the summer of 2016.

At the end of 2016 I decided to retire from my scientific work and wanted to apply my new qualification in a meaningful way.  I was introduced to Brian Pendlebury at CERA Cycloan and was inspired to volunteer at the company helping re-engage young people who have practical learning needs and help provide them with a range of skills for life.

It’s a constant learning experience about bikes and about people factors that has been challenging and ultimately rewarding.
