Second Chance Maindy St Davids Day Crit.
Our young gun rider Luke Protheroe was on form today. Racing down Maindy Velodrome in the Second Chance Maindy St Davids Day Crit. His training all through the Winter is starting to pay off. Was racing in the 1st/2nd/3rd category race with some good riders.
Luke felt good in his warm up on the rollers before the start ready for a fast race start. With a couple of laps in a break of 5 riders got away from the bunch. Luke being one of them. Working together well, they took a lap of the track over the main bunch and carried on going. With a couple of laps to go, two riders road away taking first and second place. With a sprint finish at the end Luke took 4th place. A very strong result to start the season off. Look out for this guy on the road. Next week he competes in the The Betty Pharoah Memorial Legstretchers Road Race.
Well done Luke! Big things to come from you!

This week one of our mechanics, Lewis, has been off to Belgium for the Para Cycling World Cup. Lewis works part time for the Canadian Para Cycling team. Every year he is invited to join the team for an events all over the world. Working with world champions and top para athletes all bikes had to be in pristine condition for their individual race. The Canadian team brought 13 athletes to Belguim. All athletes did very well achieving what they set out to. All round amazing event.
This Sunday saw the first round of the HSBC UK National Downhill Series in Cwmcarn. The EC Cycles team went to watch in force to support team rider Lee Howell.
The very best of British riders were all there to see who is fastest down the mountain. Lee had a good ride finishing an impressive 5th place in his category.

A trip down memory lane today to check out a very old disused cycle track that dates back to 1800. Had to see this myself, a old cycle velodrome situated in Abertillery 30min drive from the shop. The track now supports a rugby pitch but it’s still visible. This place has massive potential To rebuild the facility it would need lots of money and plenty of dedication, but defiantly worth it in the end.
How great would this be to see reopened?

We have been working hard over the last few couple of months to bring you the very best bike shop experience. Nice to see all our hard work over the last few months is paying off and being recognised. The Association of Cycling Traders have just announced we are the 'Bike shop of the month'.
Each month the ACT recognises one cycle retailer as the Shop of the month.
The Shop of the month benefits from appearing on the ACT's consumer facing website - The Cycling Experts - which has thousands of visits every month.
Without the help of all our customer we wouldn't be in the position we are in now. A big thank you goes out for your continued support.
Looking for a British brand with quality and super light components. A super cool brand that gets the kids riding and enjoying cycling then check out FROG Bikes.
We have just taken on this amazing brand to offer you the perfect kids bikes in a range of different colours. Frog bikes are designed to get your child on the perfect size bike, not designed around wheel size, but around the frame size.
"In 2013, we set about re-designing kids' bikes, creating a light but strong aluminium frame, and hand-picking components that offer a high performance without compromising the weight. Our bikes are now also much easier to pedal due to a unique crank design from the renowned bicycle engineer Dimitris Katsanis (of Team GB Olympic fame). The new design reduces the Q-factor (the space between the pedals), allowing children to push more directly down when cycling, so converting more of their energy into motion. Only Frog applies this level of rigour to the design of kids' bikes.
We are constantly working on developments and improvements to our bikes, in line with ongoing scientific research at Brunel University, so that our bikes continue to lead the market in innovation and comfort for children."
Check out the range of bikes in store today!

Shop official opening day
On the 27th January we had our official shop opening. The day was very busy with cakes, coffee, darts, prizes, a zwift competition and a few beers to finish the day off. Like to thank all our customers that made this day so special. So many people through the door to see the new shop. Hopefully see you again soon in the shop.
Video of the day can be found here

Our showrooms are open and we are in business. We are tweeking our layout and it's fair to say it has been a busy time. The response has been awesome and we are so pleased with the support you guys and girls have given us. Why not pop in store and say hello; we may even have the kettle boiling :)
Mid December 2017
It's been a Mental few weeks with the renovation taking place. We are please to be making progress. We have to kit out the new store whilst moving stock from the other two stores. It's been hard work on times but I'm sure it will be worth it.
1st December 2017
The decision has been made. Dorian Thorne and Lewis Bevan have joined forces to bring two bike shops into one. It's all kicking off with securing our premises and with a successful deal it all started on 1st December. We have signed the deal and will move right next door to Marsh MX the largest off road bike dealers in the UK.
We are pleased with the location as it's so close to the largest trail centre in Wales. " Bike Park Wales" is just a stone throw away. We are just off the A470, we offer a Free Car park facility for our customers and with a two level split shop floor its fair to say we should have everything covered.
