Activate Cycle Academy opens new Cytech workshop in Berkshire

Cytech training provider Activate Cycle Academy (ACA) has announced the opening of a new cycle maintenance training workshop in Bracknell, Berkshire.

Based at Activate Learning’s Bracknell & Wokingham College campus, the new workshop is the latest addition to the expanding number of Cytech training workshops across the country.

Matt Grant, Sales and Marketing Manager at ACA, said: “Bracknell is now our fourth workshop in England, the second we have opened during the COVID-19 period. I am delighted to say that the need for us to increase our training capacity to meet the demand for Cytech training continues as we are seeing more and more people looking to retrain and upskill as a cycle technician to join the buoyant cycle trade sector.”

He added: “Our team has worked exceptionally hard to get this fantastic workshop open in these challenging times. We had to navigate the latest lockdown at the start of the year, when all our workshops were closed, in line with all other educational and training establishments and to deal with ever increasing lead times for orders of tools, bikes and equipment. It’s been a remarkable achievement and one we’re all immensely proud of.”

The new Bracknell workshop is open for practical training, with the Cytech journey starting with Theory one online – to celebrate the new location and for the rest of May, Cytech are offering £30 off the Theory one online course which can be completed online and in your own time. The distance learning course precedes the Technical one – practical course and the two together combine to give the full Technical one qualification. For more information head over to the Theory one website: and to access the discount just use the promo code BRACKNELL at the payment review page. Offer expires 31/05/2021.

Additionally, the group are also hoping to open a new Cytech workshop in the North East this summer.
