We are delighted to be working with the professional team of bicycle mechanics and trainers at Velo Academy. Velo Academy is lead by professional bicycle mechanic Rob Dean. Rob recently visited TRACTION’s Capalaba workshop spending the day with participants from Victoria Point State High School. Rob shared his story in the industry and helped participants on their bike projects.

Velo Academy provide a range of industry recognised, professional bicycle mechanic courses for those interested in forging a career as mechanics and sales people in the bicycle industry. Velo Academy is a division of the national retailer and TRACTION supporter 99 Bikes, and training through the Velo Academy is a potential gateway for young people to employment.

Velo Academy believes in collaborative, supportive and hands-on learning approaches and makes a perfect partner for TRACTION. One area that we’re exploring with Rob is the potential for selected TRACTION participants to undertake formal training courses at Velo, potentially on a scholarship basis.

TRACTION Bike Mentor Mark recently completed a week long training course at Velo and was extremely impressed with the standard of facilities and the training provided. 

We’re looking forward to working with Rob and the team in the year ahead.
