How long have you been cycling for?
I’ve been cycling for 30 years, with a short break (job, kids family etc… but now back in the saddle!).
What’s your top bike maintenance tip?
Check the cycle every day, even if it’s just a wipe with a cloth, also listen to the cycle whilst riding, if it sounds odd, then it usually is.
What are your favourite Weldtite products?
TF2 lube, spray and liquid, used it for years and never been let down.
Where are your favourite locations to ride?
Anywhere with a cycle under me, I commute to and from work also as a British Skyride leader I get to go all over the Northwest of England seeing new people and places.
What bike do you ride at the moment?
I have 3 cycles, Mongoose Maurice single speed (commuting, tarmac riding), Specialized Hardrock Pro for Sky Rides and general playing about and a Marin Wolfridge 6.8 for when I feel really daft and giddy.
How often do you carry out bike maintenance?
I carry out my own cycle maintenance after every ride (also my wife's 4 cycles need attention too) more often than not it’s just general wash, wipe, oil and tweak.
What do you love about cycling?
It’s a great social leveller, it’s not what you ride, it’s the fact that you ride and enjoy it.

In the past I've had a couple of chain cleaning devices of varying quality and varying degrees of cleaning results. The first one was similar to this Weldtite Product i.e it fitted to the chain and cleaned it whilst the chain ran through a solvent filled 'bath' however after 2-3 revolutions the chain was being washed in contaminated white spirit/meths/turps so it didn't really clean the chain.Read full review →
If like me you are of a certain age you will remember puncture outfits were HUGE, the tube was the size of a family tube of Toothpaste, a sheet of sand paper that always took the skin off your knuckles, and as for the patch ... 10x8 inch square of black rubber which you cut to size with kitchen scissors.Read full review →
As you may remember I found the hole in the TF2 Lubricant a little too big, so I wanted to clean the surplus oil off, and ''as if by Magic'' Dirtwash Bike Cleaner appeared..Read full review →
This oil could not have arrived at a more opportune time, my single speed commuter bike needed a new chain, and due to operator error (changing gear whilst climbing a hill) so does my full suspension.Read full review →
