Poundbury Cyclesport has been open six years, having opened in March 2010- a new shop to start a new decade in the lovely county of Dorset, England.

It's location on Poundbury, on the outskirts of Dorchester is perfect for the cycle enthusiast. Off road mountain biking is never far away and the small roads and lanes of South-west Dorset call out to be explored by bicycle- the Dorset scenery and challenging terrain never disappoints.  There are numerous clubs in the area, for the casual tourer, aspiring racer or club rider.

Poundbury Cyclesport was founded by good friends, cycling companions and former co- workers:

Darren Matthews- Local man, master wheel builder and cycle mechanic who loves nothing better than cycling be it on a road or mountain bike.

Heidi Gould - Raised in Dorchester, a keen mountain biker ( She is currently racing for Merida Factory Racing in Elite cross country Mountain biking) and a road cyclist brings that feminine touch to the shop.

Joe Diomede- New Yorker, long distance cycle tourer, lover of people friendly small businesses.

It is hoped that Poundbury Cyclesport can add a different dimension to the ever growing cycling world which already exists in the Dorset area.

We stock parts, accessories and clothing with brands such as Shimano, Lazer, Catlike, Santini clothing, Oakley sunglasses, schwalbe, continental and SIS Nutrition.

We stock Orbea and Merida bikes, Orbea are well known for having held Olympic gold medals with Samuel Sanchez in road racing and Julian Absalon in Cross country and are now supplying bikes to team Cofidis in the Pro tour.  The worker owned co-operative of Orbea bikes- based in the heart of the Pyrenees in Northern Spain- brings a touch of the European passion for cycling into the heart of Dorset.

Merida a German based company have bikes in the pro tour in the form of Lampre Merida and in the mountain bike world Merida Multivan and closer to home Merida Factory Racing.
