Mountain biking is one of my passions, another is eating pies but I can’t find a club for that, I am a regular rider with the “Tuesday Knights” and try to make the pub rides when I can.
Having been a member since 2017 I would like to get a little more involved with the club.
I feel that I have a lot to offer, in particular I would like to help with the Dr Bike sessions or any projects that may be put forward.
I started my working life in engineering before moving into account management having worked for several blue chip companies including Robert Bosch Gmbh where I was a national sales manager.
I have a good level of marketing and promotional experience which may be of use to the club.
I love to have a good laugh and enjoy the banter in the club but I can be serious when needed, I am all about inclusion and do not tolerate discrimination of any kind, I like things to be straight with fairness in mind, having me on the committee will ensure that an open dialogue with all members will foremost. I am not afraid to break a few eggs to ensure that the correct things are done.
Some of the pledges in my manifesto will be to limit the number Stooge bikes in the club as there are far too many already and to ensure that cake is brought to Dr Bike sessions (Lemon drizzle is preferable). I would also use my newly gained power to move the committee meeting nights so they will not clash with club rides.
Whilst I am an MTB rider, I am keen for all cyclists to be represented in the club and will try to ensure more cohesion, I will aim to join some touring rides on our tandem possibly bringing my wife as well.
If I had to describe myself with a single word it would be “FABULOUS”!
