A lifelong cyclist but late comer to cycle retail, Robin hopes you can share his love for two wheeled transport. Clocks up weekly miles on the commute and along the Thames valley. Claims an ‘allergy’ to hills!
S Works Roubaix (love it!!) and ‘The Bus’ – a no-name steel commuter, and a very, very old but very lovely Klein.
Cycling high points: Swaledale, Arkengarthdale, N York Moors off road – ‘back in the day’;
North Down CC Coastal Challenge – a glorious road ride around the Ards Peninsula in Northern Ireland.
Another escapee from the world of the office job, Ian is a British Cycling Level 2 Coach, with more than his fair share of Gran Fondos ticked off (he loves a bit of Italian…) Claims he can climb like a mountain goat.
Whatever is put in front of me but eyeing up a nice Crux for the cross race 2015 season.

My cycling high point is commuting to Covent Garden every day in the wettest winter on record.
Borrowed from Specialized Australia, Ben has brought to London his years of experience as both a mechanic in Oz and as an amateur racer in France; very little about Specialized that he hasn’t seen, fixed, ridden or at least read about! Still pretty quick, too.
My current bike is a Globe Roll SE. My dream bikes are an S-Works Allez Ltd and an S-Works Epic WC!
My cycling high points are racing full-time as an amateur elite in France for siz seasons. I once did an 11 hour training ride and covered 320km - ouch!
Lured away from Specialized Concept Store in Alicante, Luis has made a reputation for himself as a problem solver and bike builder ‘par excellence’. In the most orderly workshop seen in Central London, he wields his magic over everything from a simple ‘back on the road’ service to a complete custom build. Also rides like the wind.

I love the English weather!
‘train hard in winter, be strong in summer!’
I have a Crux frameset - need the wheels next!
My cycling high points are training in Gran Canaria and I love to train in strong headwinds..
I'm the mountain biker of the Covent Garden team!
My current ride is an Epic. My dream bike is a Stumpjumper FSR Evo Carbon.
My cycling high points are climbing the Stelvio, ‘classic’ side up and being a cycle tour guide in the Alps – being paid money to ride a bike is awesome.
I'm a regular cyclist but my dream ride is a Remos GX3 (plane!)
Currently riding a Brompton folding bike.
I rode the Cape Argus 2013 in South Africa.
My favourite saying is "Carpe Diem" !
