Our Trusted Staff
Here at Two Wheel Centre, we're more than just voices on the end of the phone line - we're a family-grown business! We have a passion for helping anyone and everyone who shares our love for two wheels.
So to help you trust the person you're speaking to, whether on the phone or in our stores, we would like to proudly introduce our Two Wheel Centre team.
You're in knowledgable, trusted hands.
Peter Scott - The Boss
Pete is the founder of Two Wheel Centre. Having had a passion for bikes since he was a whippersnapper, Pete has relentlessly ploughed his time and effort into the business for over two decades. You can read more about how Pete has helped the business grow on the Our History page. Pete has successfully raced a CBR1000RR, and more recently a GSXR1000, he's convinced Rossi will eat his dust on the track one day!
Rebecca Scott - Admin
Rebecca is Pete's eldest daughter, and was roped into the business a wholesome 10 years ago. In fact, Rebecca remembers the day when the business ran from just one computer, she was the official 'pen pusher' in a business where all the records were hand written. Rebecca is the lady we have to thank for bringing technology to Two Wheel Centre - we now have more computers than PC World! Rebecca works part-time across all departments, originally based here she now helps out from afar.
Rebecca began in Jess's shoes as our company secretary so she's often pacing through paperwork issues! Rebecca has a passion for teaching and the remainder of her working week is dedicated to teaching book keeping and accounting to adults.
This isn't Bec's only side - her straight laced front is a work mask, when she clocks off her wilder side clocks in. She has taken part in Silverstone Rally School's 'Lady Quest' and Ron Haslam Race Days (albeit crashing out). She previously owned a Virgin R6 and her favourite route is down The Old A1.
Jessica Scott - Company Secretary
Jessica is Pete's middle daughter, keeping the Two Wheel team organised and up to date as the Company Secretary. Jess hasn't always been office-bound; over the years, Jessica has operated across all of Two Wheel Centre's departments - workshop receptionist, e-commerce development , and parts and clothing departmental operations. This makes Jess versatile, knowledgeable and a valuable Two Wheel staff member! Moreover, Jess is furthering her business prowess by undertaking an undergraduate, Bachelor's Business Studies degree. There's more to Jess beyond the desk though! Jess has a motorcycle-keen side, quite naturally! Her first hand two wheel experience has led her to own her own YZF-R6, and more recently a GSXR750.
Abigail Scott - E-Commerce
Abigail is Pete's youngest daughter; she has worked in the company since 2003. Abi has been instrumental in building the thriving e-commerce department, managing the web sales department and directing the company's strategy. Although she doesn't own a bike at the minute Abi does have a full motorcycle licence, meaning every day at TWC is a temptation: it is only a matter of time before she bites the bullet again! Outside of work, Abi enjoys riding her two horses (2bhp!) and is completing a Law degree part-time.
Diane Scott - Sales Admin
Diane is another jack of all trades in the business. She often darts between departments, always there to keep everyone organised and supported. Her primary role is assisting the showroom staff where we keep all of our bikes - old and new. Diane's motorcycle history is coloured with a wide variety of models - everything from a CB250 to a Yamaha YZF-R6. Beyond British solo riding Diane and Pete have enjoyed many holidays adventuring overseas on two wheels.
Natasha Brailsford - Internet Sales and Customer Service
Tash has blossomed through her six years in the business, beginning in internet sales she's grown both personally and professionally! Tash's curious nature directed her around and about - she's bounced from stores to invoicing to admin. All of this bouncing is evolving to flying as she begins a new challenge in the Internet Sales Customer Service role. Alongside work Tash is a dedicated business undergraduate student, excited to apply her knowledge here at TWC.
At 16 Tash completed her CBT as soon as was legally possible, enjoying a rare freedom at such a young age, owning her independence atop a Piaggio Zip 50. Motoring skills must come second nature to Tash, at 19 she traded two wheels for four and gained her licence on her first attempt! Off the wheels she successfully finished as a 2012 Miss Mansfield Competition finalist - sponsored and supported by Two Wheel Centre.
Karl Revill - Stores Manager
Karl began motorcycling back in 1979, this passion directed him to a job in the motorcycle industry, where he's invested the past 30 years. Karl's bursting with motorcycle knowledge - known as the 'Givi Master' by some - his smarts have come from both professional and personal experience. As the manager of our motorcycle stores he's always around to help with clothing, accessories and parts.
Karl must be the envy of many big motorcycle trip enthusiasts, with a few mega motorcycle bucket list races under his helmet - two Le Mans, four TT, two trips to Monza and Hockenheim in Germany. He's also experienced a few track days at Donington, Cadwell and Mallory. His current ride is a 2008 ER-6, although Karl cycles to work everyday - balancing fitness with the fire of a bike!
Steve Cottam ('Cott') - Parts, Clothing and Accessories
Cott's been a valued Two Wheel Centre employee for a collection of six years, he's currently working his second stint in the business. He is a valued and knowledgeable member of staff, among the team and his many regular customers. His long, professional history in motocross makes this his specialty, backed up with off road parts and accessories. His knowledge is extensive and developed through rides and rides of experience. If you'd like off road advice/gear Cott offers friendly, enthusiastic advice.
Cott is a prolific rider, having ridden bikes for over 30 years. He first took to the tracks at the keen age of 15. He's spun his wheels in 80cc, 125cc two stroke, 500cc two stroke and 250cc four stroke classes, with much success. He won fourth in Twin Shock Racing at national level, and boasts an incredible 2nd in the 2008 World Championship. Cott's at home on the MX track but he's no stranger to road riding, he's proudly owned a Vespa, 50cc scooters and a GSX-R750.
Pete Shevlin - Workshop and sales assistant
Pete Shevlin darts from the workshop to stores and back to the workshop again, his variety of skills have grown over his 25 years in the motorcycle industry. His love of bikes always translates into enthusiasm with which he throws himself into any job asked of him. You might catch him discussing jackets in stores or you might not see him at all as he delivers bikes to customers across the country.
If he's not driving our van he might be atop his own CBR 600, or wistfully remembering the motoring prowess of his previous BMW K1100.
Aimee Haynes - Sales Admin
Aimee is a long standing member of staff and has worked throughout the company since early 2009, an utterly wonderful part of the team. Her wonderful, knowledgeable face is probably the first you'll come across entering the showroom.
Aimee bends over backwards to keep the sales department running smoothly, ensuring you feel confident when you're investing in a new or second hand ride. Working alongside Pete she's always picking up tips from the big boss. Aimee's also a beginner two wheel rider with a CBT to her name and ambitions for owning her own scooter. Once she's invested in a scooter she imagines the excitement will push her onto a full licence.
Terry Udall - Workshop Technician
Terry is a fully trained motorcycle technician with over 30 years experience. He's worked with us since 2003, repairing, servicing, installing alarms, and conducting MOTs and PDIs.
Terry is bursting with motorcycle know-how and his biking affections are extensive, having owned and ridden a collection of models over his riding years. Surprisingly, underneath his tough, mechanical exterior lies his secret love, the dinky Honda C90. He's also the envy of many staff with the scent of his delicious lunches flying through the kitchen air every lunchtime.
James 'Jimmy' Scott - Valeter and Junior Workshop Technician, Suzuki apprentice
Jimmy is Pete's nephew, one of the most genuine and polite young men you may ever come across! He has worked at Two Wheel Centre since 2011, beginning as a workshop assistant. He grafted hard as an assistant and progressed to become our chief valeter, valeting sales bikes to an extremely high standard (that's why our showroom bikes always look impeccable), and broadening his skills to include PDI, basic servicing and a brief understanding of technician work.
During his near half-decade on the books Jimmy has spent time in the parts and clothing department. In addition he's undergone the externally conducted Dunlop tyre fitting and repair course. He's also built his skills outside of the workshop. Jimmy proudly completed a level 3 diploma in Systems Support and Networking at West Notts College alongside his current motorcycle maintenance and repairs NVQ Level 2 studies under the 3-year Suzuki apprenticeship.
Jimmy has dipped in and out of bikes since his 16th birthday having owned three including a Honda Varadero 125. His motorcycle dreams began with a CBT, progressing to the whole-hog motorcycle licence which he was awarded in 2015.
Mitchell Betts - Workshop Technician, Suzuki apprentice
Mitch is one of the youngest TWC team members, joining us alongside his manager Lee earlier in 2015. Mitch's passion for bikes, a passion spurred at a young age, rode him straight into this career path. He first pursued this passion with racing and achieved British Champion status five times in (legal) drag racing - well done Mitch! Professionally this is his first technician role, an effortless achievement as he's so naturally enthused by bikes. He spends much of his own time working on them - his first scooter is a custom-built Gilera Runner 175 scooter - handcrafted by Mitchell himself.
His current studies are under the Suzuki 3-year apprenticeship scheme, studying for his NVQ Level 2 motorcycle maintenance and repairs qualification, consistently surprising himself with how quickly he's improving his skills.
Eleanor Wilde - Website Content Writer
Eleanor is mad about writing, and studied part-time for five years to obtain an English Literature degree with the Open University. She has written about all sorts of things, from being a landlord to eating ethically, and dreams of being a published author. Eleanor is now writing for the website and blog of Two Wheel Centre remotely, and is having fun learning and writing about all things bike-related. She's become so hooked on them her savings account is now reserved for a VanVan 125.
In her free time, she sings in a bluegrass band and volunteers with the Lincs and Notts Air Ambulance charity, a cause very close to her (and Two Wheel Centre's) heart - she even has a helicopter tattoo!
Laura McLoughlin - Website Content Writer
Laura graduated with a business management degree back in 2011 and followed this with a customer service role at another small company. She chased this with travels throughout Asia, countries teeming with scooters and bikes. This developed her excitement and affection for bikes which led her to own a Daelim SL125. She's passionate about writing and began developing her skills, beyond an English Language A level, on her personal blog that documents some of her travels and experiences on the road and teaching.
Laura's dream scooter is a Vespa Sprint and if she has the gumption, something bigger in the future.
