Ben joins the Bikmo Dev team to support Jorj in the ever changing world of tech. To keep us at the forefront, he spends endless hours in a dark room with keyboard in hand, only emerging to top up his caffeine levels. With such dedication, it’s hardly any wonder our site looks so good.
A recent returner to two wheels, Ben has sparked up his passion once more in his recovery from a knee injury. A regular around the picturesque Wirral lanes, Ben is loving the feel of the wind through his hair…on both his head and legs!
