Hi, I'm Kate!
Founder of Ratchet & Ride.
I have been a motor vehicle technician since I left school, so I have been working on cars for over 20 years as both a technician and a Master Tech. Although my career has been working on cars, my passion has always been motorcycles. I have worked on race bikes to cruisers, both 2 strokes and 4 strokes. I currently teach in a college, so my students who have bikes are constantly asking for help.
Through Ratchet & Ride, I want to empower women to be able to maintain their own bikes. I provide 1:1, women-only training in a calm and safe environment. I cater for all abilities—whether you just want to be confident doing pre-ride checks or be able to carry out more complex jobs that you would normally go to a garage for.
By having the capability to work on your own bike, your confidence will grow and make being out on your bike less daunting and more enjoyable.
