BikeBiz gets to know the people working in the nation’s cycle trade, one person at a time (this might take a while). This month it’s the turn of RSI’s Simon Howes…
How long have you been with RSI?
Since January 2015.
How long have been in the industry?
Since January 2015! However I have been involved in road cycling for 30-plus years as a rider and more recently team sports director.
What’s the best thing about working in the cycle industry?
It’s a warm friendly environment. Everyone you meet has a story to tell.
What’s the best part of your job? And the worst?
Best: Travelling the UK meeting such a varied range of personalities from all aspects of the cycling world, from former champions to guys who have just started out in the cycling industry having been successful in their previous careers. The Worst? Not yet happened!
What are you working on at the moment?
As the sole UK distributor of Exustar.com the main focus is the exustar bike fit jig.
