About : Joe, a former bike phobic had a love/hate relationship with bikes – loved to ride them, hated fixing them, which is why he was keen to get Wolverhampton Bike Shed started with co-founder Simon. This stunted knowledge of bikes was hardly surprising given his first bike was a single speed contraption with solid rubber tyres from the bargain pages. Good times! Now an experienced off road mountain biker (with 1 air mile!), Joe’s main role at the Shed is helping others to develop their hands on skills. The Bike Shed is there to encourage people with all levels of experience to enjoy cycling and feel more confident with simple maintenance…even Joe!!
