Poundbury Cyclesport has been open eight 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 his MTB and finished 15th overall in the 2017 vets National Point series. He is racing this year for Orbea Factory Team UK.
Heidi Gould - Raised in Dorchester, a keen mountain biker ( she has been racing for Merida Factory racing the last two seasons and finished 7th overall in the Elite 2017 National point series, This season she is racing for the Orbea Factory Team UK aboard her Orbea Oiz ) and 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.
