It’s all well and good having the best of the UK tracks and trails on our doorstep but sometimes we all start longing for a change of scene. If you’re you good at maintaining and fixing road bikes and ready for a serious change of scene then a dream job could be awaiting you in the cycling paradise of the Spanish Canary Islands.
Club La Santa, the go to destination for cyclists, triathletes and fitness athletes the world over, are looking to recruit a cycle mechanic to support their clientele while at the resort. If you’ve had enough of the talk of UK lockdowns potentially returning, sitting in pub gardens never knowing if it’s going to be t-shirts or two coats and a brolly and you’re ready to take things up a gear, this could be the right position, at exactly the right time, for you.
If you’ve got experience in cycle mechanics or retail, and want to work surrounded by committed athletes, in a warm, sunny, cycling friendly environment (who wouldn’t??!) then read the spec below and check out the application process here . Although salary isn’t specified, it does say that subsidised accommodation is provided, and to be honest, I’m so keen to get out of the UK right now and ride somewhere a)warm, b)different and c)away from the local South London boy racers, that I think I’m going to apply myself on the strength of the Saturday job I had at London’s On Your Bike when I was a teenager and the way I can handle a 10mm socket set these days.
Anyway, if you’re more qualified or experienced than me, check out the spec below:
