Bicycle Co-op Member Hall of Fame: Les Simpson


Les has been our Aberdeen store manager since the shop became part of the Bike Co-op in 2002. Having worked at the shop for its former owner (Cycling World) over the previous 19 years, Les is the living embodiment of the expression – a safe pair of hands.

When Les started working in the shop in 1983, he was the Scottish Junior 25 mile record (56.49) holder.

That same year, Les took his first cycling trip to Mallorca – long before it was considered a cool cycling mecca. Les loved it so much, he has returned to the Balearics every year since.

Closer to home, Les’s knowledge of the best whisky distillery routes in his Speyside/Deeside backyard is encyclopaedic.

We trust that the wealth of experience individuals such as Les bring to the Bike Co-op is one of the reasons you can expect sound advice whenever you shop with us.
