I'm excited to be here running SFS Cycles from my workshop in Levenshulme, Manchester.
I've always been a keen cyclist and am passionate about re-using and re-furbishing things that are still useable. I've seen a lot of waste, yet there's a lot we can do to keep bikes on the road for longer.
Having retired from my 32 years working in road safety for Lancashire County Council, I'm now embarking on following my passion of getting more people on their bikes which have been saved from skips and sheds.
SFS Cycles was set up to keep bikes on the road for longer for less expense. More than ever before, limited resources need conserving and energy use needs reducing and re-using existing bikes is a healthy way of helping meet both of these needs.
Getting around towns and cities by bike is becoming both easier and safer as more and more cycle facilities are built. The growing combination of on-road and off-road routes makes this an ideal time to dust off your old bike or buy a good value, practical refurbished bike to join the many people rediscovering the health and financial benefits of cycling.
I stock a number of bikes which are ideal for everyday use about town whether it is for commuting, shopping, social events and can be used for leisure trips as well. Most bikes can be set up to make using them as a main source of travel more convenient – just contact me via email or phone or, even better, come to my workshop to discuss your requirements.
