Meet the Team
Rob H steers Outspoken Cycles and ensures the smooth running of the various services and development of new projects. Rob was our workshop manager before stepping up. Having worked in shops across the UK there is little about bikes he doesn’t know. As a former racer and current exercise fanatic, you can often see him on his track bike or on the River Cam
Rob came to Outspoken in 2018 from a long career running Ben Haywards cycles. His warm welcome greets all who visit the shop and his knowledge of cargo bikes are second to none. While he might not admit it, he’s also a talented mechanic! His favourite bike is his ‘bouncy’ Moulton for its ‘immaculate conception’ – his own words!
David heads up our workshop and brings his years of experience in the bike industry to the team. He has a Swiss army knife of skills and is able to solve the trickiest mechanical problems. Having worked on robotics to small bespoke bikes his industry knowledge has helped out many people
Joining us in the summer of 2021, Kate has taken lead in organising the events at Outspoken Cycles, including our famous Smoothie Bike events.
Elly joined the Outspoken Cycles team in March 2023, having spent seven years working as events manager at a science park in South Cambridge. It was through this role that Elly became familiar with Outspoken, booking us for Dr Bike sessions and training courses. Having worked with Outspoken as a client for a number of years, she realised that she loved our company vision and values and decided to take a side-step and join us. Outside of work Elly enjoys embroidery, spending time with her family and walks with her golden retriever.
