    Hello all

    We are an independently run small chain of bicycle repair shop/caf├ęs. We need two experienced bicycle mechanics to work in our existing locations in Camberwell and Kennington and new store in Battersea. Cycle PS was established at the start of last year and we try to offer something different from a traditional bike shop. All of our workshops are front of house and our mechanics are required to greet customers and talk through the work done on their bikes. Each location also includes a cafe/bar and bicycle and accessory sales which our mechanics also advise on.
    The ideal candidate must be at least NVQ or Cytech level 2 qualified and have at least three years experience working in a busy bike shop. Excellent product knowledge is essential. We service a broad range of bicycles from folders and MTB's to full carbon road bikes.

    We are looking for an individual who works well as part of a team and has a genuine passion for bikes. You must be able to work well under pressure and demonstrate excellent time management skills and work accurately and to a high standard. You will be expected to manage your workload, parts and tools required and keep the workshop tidy and organised.
    If you think that you would like to join our team please email your cv to fixmybike@cycle-ps.co.uk
    References will be required.

    I second Tanzania and Rwanda, went there or first time last year and it was amazing! The roads in Rwanda are on the whole better than Tanzania but great views in both. I recommend dar es Salam, Arusha, Serengeti, lake Victoria and Kigali. Internal flights are also pretty cheap...
