As cycling increases, there will need to be more bike mechanics - already there is a shortage and shops find it hard to recruit. Mobile bike mechanics, servicing bikes at homes or offices, are also becoming more popular.

So how do you qualify to become a bike mechanic?

There are excellent bike training courses in the UK Cytech and US Barnett Bicycle Institute - consider combining an overseas holiday with a valuable qualification.

Australian options we've been able to find that seem to be current are:

- Cyctech courses are offered in Australia by Bicycle Industries Australia

- Five Star Training run Certificate III in Bicycle Workshop Operations AUR30216

- Under the name Bicycle Mechanic Training Institute they also run a range of other courses

- The Australian Government has information about the content of Certificate III in Bicycle Workshop Operations AUR30216 and a list of providers
