Simon & Jackie opened the shop in 1995 after discovering mountain biking in 1989. Simon had ridden & raced road bikes in his native Manchester since he was a teenager. His first mountain bike was a Marin Palisades. Jackie jumped on a Marin Muirwood in 1988 & loved it.
As they lived, ate & breathed mountain biking, competing in many of the races of the day, including the Boltby bash & the Malvern classic. They decided to open a specialist mountain bike shop in Westcott, a perfect location being on the door step of Leith Hill, for mountain biking. It's a rider led shop & we're passionate about what we sell & can offer many years of experience to draw upon when offering advice. It's a great place to meet like minded people and many friendships have been forged over the years.
