A big thank you to the whole Bike Inn team for a great two weeks of intense training.
Thank you for a great course, both informative and flexible in it delivery
I cannot thank you guys enough, the bike inn has opened up so many opportunities and I now am working in a job that I love which is hard for a lot of people to say!
I came back from a ski season in France and the 2-week course has given me the skills to extend next ski season work into summer as a mountain bike technician.
Jon and Dave were both very knowledgeable and good teachers, I definitely felt that I made the right choice of course provider to go to
