After years of working and competing in the cycling world, Cheshire Cycles business owner, Mike Carlin, felt there was a need for a professional repair service in the area. Our ethos is, and always has been, one of a personal, one to one level of customer service, along with welcoming, helpful and knowledgeable staff who can engage with clients of all levels of ability. 

Early 2013 saw the opening of our brand new 600 sq/ft workshop.  As one of the largest cycle workshops in the Northwest of England, we continue to expand at a rapid rate by increasing its repairs up from last years 100+ bikes per week of summer repairs. Complimenting our workshop our mobile repair service can also offer repairs to anywhere in the Northwest.

Mike Carlin – Owner

Mike-Carlin-DT-SwissMike-Carlin-CytechMike has come from a long background of competitive cycling. Starting in 2002 by entering the Tyketrial Regional events, Mike moved up from intermediate to expert class within 1 year. By 2004 Mike was travelling all over the UK and into France to compete, entering the world level competition in Fontainebleau named “Koxx Days” and was improving month on month.  2006 saw the competitive end of  bike trials for Mike as he worked towards opening the shop.

Mike achieved his industry standard Cytech Level 2 qualifications during his second year working at the store alongside generally getting out and about on the trail. Mike currently rides a Intense Tracer 275C but be quick, as he is usually leaping off any number of jumps and trails!

Cheshire Cycles also employs two further mechanics both carrying Cytech 2 accreditation.
