Bicycle MIAS Seminars
Who are they for?
This is a series of technical training certification seminars on the mechanisms of a modern bicycle.
They are done in collaboration with MIAS (Mountain Bike Instructor Award Scheme) and upon completion MIAS gives certification to the prospective student.
It is addressed both to professionals in the field and to people who love the sport and would like to acquire valid and correct technical knowledge on the bicycle.
Definitely a good resource for those interested in becoming a professional bike mechanic either in a shop or professional cycling team.
Who organizes them?
The seminars are organized by the Urban Bike Society store with Akis Mavropoulos as the presenter.
Theodoros Mavropoulos was born in Thessaloniki in 1984. He studied mechanical engineering and had cycling as a hobby since he was 16.
Later he entered competitive cycling and his first experience as a competitive cyclist was in 2000. With hard training and persistence in the following years he managed to obtain the following titles.
- 2004 in DH Elassonas 3rd
- 2008 men’s category 3rd
- 2014 Hardtail Evia 2nd
- 2014 Pelion Hardtail 3rd
- 2015 Hardtail Xanthi & Steni 2nd

At the same time, from 2000-2009 he worked as a technician in bicycle shops in Thessaloniki and in 2010 he took the initiative to open his own bicycle shop, URBAN BIKE Society, which he maintains until today.
In all these years of his involvement with the subject, his priority was his development on it as well as his specialization in various fields. The main priority was to get certifications from all major manufacturers such as EXT Racing, Fox Racing, RockShox, Shimano, Sram and recently he managed to become a MIAS-Maintenance Level Five (CT5) certified instructor.
What makes him stand out is his constant evolution and love for everything bike related.
His joy in providing solutions to your problems and sharing smiles with his happy customers.
