Hi I'm George Allen, the owner of Feel Good Bicycles.

Welcome to my website. I am writing this to introduce myself and the new shop, Feel Good Bicycles. We opened doors in mid April 2017 taking over from the previous bike shop, Premier Cycles. The story of Feel Good Bicycles only started a couple of months previously in February when Andy the owner for Premier Cycles told me one day that he was looking for a change and asked me would I be interested in taking over the bike shop? After a little think about it I said Hell Yea! I have actually wanted to have a bike shop of my own for a few years now and since leaving my previous job in tourism not long before I had been looking for exactly this sort of opportunity!

I am a keen cyclist and I love all sorts of bikes. As long as I am on 2 wheels, I am happy. Most of the time you will find me on a mountain bike as I live the thrill and adrenalin but you will see me on the road bike too or commuting on a hybrid. On the service side of things, I have been fixing my own bike since I was a teenager and done a bit on the side over the years in my own garage or helping out Andy in Cyclize and Premier Cycles. When I knew the shop was going ahead, I consolidated those years of skills by doing the City & Guilds Cycle Mechanic course so you can feel confident your bike is looked after by a qualified professional bicycle mechanic .

Now, Feel Good Bicycles is up and running and we are 4 months in. I have tonnes of ideas and plans as I want to make this the best bike shop in the area! To start with though I haven't changed too much yet apart from taking in the bike brand Orbea from Spain, putting a full workshop service menu into use and am currently very busy with setting up a full stock control system as well. I have another bike brand lined up for the shop soon to be announced and currently doing lots of research to find the best wheel brand to stock watch this space!
