Charity Ride Support at Cycle Tech Oldham

Charity Ride Support at Cycle Tech Oldham

Yesterday afternoon Elliot from Cycle Tech Oldham delivered a brand new Orbea Avant road bike to Tom Matley at Oldham Athletic Football Club.

Oldham Athletic contacted us a few weeks ago asking if we could help Tom on his Charity ride.  Tom will be riding from Barnsley via Hull to Amsterdam raising money for Prostate Cancer UK.  As this is such a good cause we decided to supply him with a  bike to use.  In addition we also gave Tom a full bike fit to make sure he will be as comfortable as possible for his ride.

Tom is very close to his target of £1,000 but still requires further donations to get him over the line. Please support a fellow cyclist, dig deep and donate what you can.

To donate, please visit www.justgiving.com/oafcf2a and follow the on-screen instructions.

You can follow Tom’s story and keep updated, see https://www.oldhamathletic.co.uk/news/2017/may/19052017-tom-matley-bike-ride/

Cycle Tech Oldham, the next step

Cycle Tech Oldham, The Next Step!

Now 2016 is almost over I have had time to reflect on the past couple of years, taking the big step of moving into a “Bricks and Mortar” shop. Then moving again into a bigger shop just over a year later.  The customer feedback as been fantastic and I think everyone likes the new shop.  I am not the type of person who likes to sit still, so what next, where do i take Cycle Tech Oldham in 2017?

I hope 2017 will be as exciting as 2016 as we will be adding Bike Fitting and Maintenance training to what we currently do, of course this will mean taking on extra staff, hopefully Elliot will be starting full time when he leaves College next year and we will be looking for a full time apprentice.  On a personal level I want to give something back to the local area as its the local customers who have helped me build up Cycle Tech Oldham, therefore we will be offering works experience placements to local Schools and Colleges.

Another way we are giving something back to our customers and the local community is that we are launching a Crowdfunder Project in early 2017.  The Crowdfunder Project will be to fund building a Training room for the Maintenance classes and building a dedicated Bike Fit room.

I am still working on the rewards (any ideas are welcome) but hopefully they will be rewards that potential supporters will want and want to get on board with the new project

On a final note I want to say a Big Thank you to every customer who as been into Cycle Tech Oldham over the last few years, wish you all a Happy Christmas and a Happy New Year

If you have any questions or would like any further information on the Crowdfunder project the please contact me below
