Outspoken's Head Mechanic one of Top 100 Women in Cycling

Catherine was nominated as one of Cycling UK's top 100 women in cycling by a Velotech Gold trainee that she inspired. 

"I want to nominate Catherine from Outspoken Cycles in Cambridge. If cycling, like most sports, is still male-dominated, the workshop and bike mechanics must be even more so, but for me Catherine stands out as an exceptional talent and yes, an inspiration. As a 40-something male, I was (pleasantly) surprised to find a woman leading the Velotech Gold mechanic course when I arrived at Outspoken. Catherine is obviously a highly skilled mechanic, but more than that, she is an exceptional teacher. I have never been mechanically-minded or able, but thanks to her patience, her clear explanations and general brilliance, I am now able to maintain a fleet of mountain bikes - she even gave me the confidence to fix my broken washing machine myself, something I would never have even attempted without her. So thanks Cat, you're a star!"

Well done Catherine and thank you for your skill & dedication in helping Outspoken to achieve our aim of helping people become confident cyclists, knowing they have the knowldege to fix their own bike when things go wrong.
