Fabio is a senior mechanic at the West Midlands workshop in Birmingham.

His cycling journey started when he was 5 years old and hasn’t stopped since! He started work in a bicycle shop back in Portugal from 2006 and moved to Birmingham in 2015 where he volunteered in a boat bike shop. He then started work at Nottingham Trent University hiring and repairing bikes for students and staff, and at Bike Right! as maintenance instructor.

As a cyclist he has taken part in cross-country marathons and MTB Orienteering. Nowadays, he uses his bikes for commuting and touring. For him, getting more people riding safe bikes is most important.
