Following 20 years working in Design, Andy joined Westerham Cyclery in June 2015. As a qualified Cytech Level 2 Mechanic he spends his time up in our workshop servicing and repairing a broad range of cycles as well as building brand new Specialized road, mountain and kids bikes for our customers. A steady supply of double espresso and the amazing chocolate cake from the Drop Bar gets him through the most manic of days. On days away from the workshop Andy can often be found cycling the hills and lanes of Kent in preparation for a number of local sportives. However, he rides his favourite route whilst visiting the in-laws in South Wales - a 70 mile loop that takes in several punishing climbs with spectacular views across the Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons.
