The Boss!


Mike started The Forge Cycleworks almost 10 years ago, back then called Common Assault just off the main high street. Roll forward a couple of years and a location change and here we are.

Mike S started with Mike when he first opened and has been a hanging aroung eating custard cremes ever since! Mike's past lifes include BMX racing, Downhilling and the odd marathon in the mix!





Martin is our tamed race whippet. Need to go faster or how to shave a few grams of the bike, he's the man to talk to. Combine that with years of working in the trade, he's our go to eyes for bike sizing.


Jack of all trades!


James is the new(ish) kid on the block. From helping you choose right bike, picking up the spanners when the mechanics are away, and playing tech support, he's keen to help.


Saturday Lad!


Mark rolled upto the shop mid ride sometime ago to say "Hi" and was just such a lovely chap Mike decided to offer him a job! Mark's our resident Roadie, although rumor has it he has a mountain bike in a box, somewhere...
