favourite bike: COLNAGO C64

best ride: Les Lacets de Montvernier

I’m a life-long cyclist and have been involved in cycling and the cycling industry for the past thirty years. I’ve got plenty of races under my belt, doing most of them in Ireland 🇮🇪 where I’m from originally. One of my favourite races is the An Post Rás, an eight-day stage race around Ireland, which I’ve done a good few times. I’m also a fully trained Retul bike fitter.

Italian from Sicily 🙂, mostly seen juggling a baby under one arm or turning up at the shop with pram AND bike for the Wednesday bike ride. She loves her Bianchi and has a passion for Colnago and DeRosa, she is also very keen to build up the female cycling part of the business so if you are a lady, get in touch.

favourite bike: Cannondale Synapse ETAP

best ride: Zeeland Bridge, Holland

Ex-elite rider in Europe during his youth 🚴, Gary needs no excuse to get out on his trusty [not rusty] steed around the roads of Tunbridge Wells. Gary’s first love is road cycling and having been in the business for over 20 years – there’s not much he doesn’t know about anything bike-related!

favourite bike: Trek Domane RSL

best ride: COL De SABOT

Matt has huge experience in Retul bike fitting, and as a cyclist himself can advise on perfecting your posture on the bike to help improve performance while staying injury free. His eye for detail also makes him a scrupulous mechanic. When he is not riding somewhere warm in Europe or learning Italian, Matt enjoys walking his three sighthounds and long distance adventuring.

favourite bike: FOES XC2 MTB

best ride: EPPING FOREST

Marlon has been cycling MTB and road bikes all his life. And being a free spirit and so passionate about cycling, guess where has he been in working since he was 16? You guessed. In a bike workshop, where you can still find him, completely calm and collected while he sips his 10th coffee of the day ☺

best ride: Wye Valley, South Wales

Whether it's road racing on a women's elite team, or racing the Half Ironman World Champs in Nice, Ellie is up for any outdoor challenge! After pursuing her childhood ambition of becoming a vet and completing a BSc and MSc in Animal Sciences, Ellie then realised she wanted a career whereby she could inspire others to take part in sport. Although relatively new to Tunbridge Wells, Ellie has fitted in swiftly and takes great interest in encouraging more women into cycling. She also loves offering advice on products to both experienced and newbie cyclists.

best ride: Bikepacking in the New Forest

Tom has been in the industry for five years and riding bikes since he could walk. He gains
huge satisfaction from just being on a bike, enjoying the sights and sounds of the great outdoors. Having relied on bikes as transport for as long as he can remember, you’ll find him out and about, whether it be a leisurely cruise through a forest, commuting to work, or whizzing around the local roads. He's sure to be smiling as he coasts by.
