Terms & Conditions
Performance Cycles has over 30 years experience in cycling, and in this time we hope we've learnt a thing or two about bikes!! Before we started Performance Cycles, we were always frustrated by our local bikes shops only trying to sell us a bike they had on the shelf - and not truely listening to what we wanted!!
We try and do things a little differently - in all cases our customer is put first (it's been said a thousand times before, but it really is a case of the customer is king), and your needs will always be carefully considered. We'll never sell you "what we've got" we'd rather listen to what you need and advise you accordingly, and if that means building a bike specifically for you - or going out and finding new a supplier just to get that one part that you need, then that is undoubtably the best way to do it. At least that way you know you'll get the right size frame, the best level of kit for your money and the correct range of gears for the type of riding you're planning on doing!! Why have a bike with high 'race' gearing, when actually you'll be tackling the climbs of the Alp's in your latest Sportive challenge.
For us, it really is about the bike - or at least riding the bike!! And that's why we treat everyone the same, whether you're a seasoned rider or a complete newcomer to the sport - you'll always be made to feel welcome, and the kettle will be on!!
Performance Cycles in owned and run by Andy Kirk and Andrew Wilcox - both riding since their early teens, with a huge passion for the sport.
Andy has been riding since the age of 14 for his local club, the Corinium Cycling Club. In 1996 he rode the regional heats of the GHS and qualified for the National finals, along with riding the Junior National 10 and the Duo Normand in France (a race won that year by olympic gold medalist Chris Boardman). More recently he's got back into riding and racing (after time out for a family) and rides road races, the odd time trial and Sportive events (including the 2006 and 2009 Etape du Tour).
Andy has been cycling from a young age, taking to the sport like a duck to water. Although his true love is the road, he can often be seen getting plastered in mud in a number of the annual MTB Enduro events around the country!! Andy is a true all rounder, competing in road races, time trials (including three 12 hour events, and being crowned club BAR champ), MTB Enduro events and Sportives (including the 2006 and 2009 Etape du Tour).
