Peak Ascent Cycles

I've already spent 3 decades riding bikes! It's sparked a passion to open my own bike shop and create a place to meet and help like-minded enthusiasts.

Raising money for Blythe House Hospice

Peak Ascent Cycle’s Josh Thorpe has raised money by completing a sponsored ‘Coast to Coast’ cycle ride along Hadrian’s Wall, for Blythe House.

Originally due to start November 2020, the event was postponed until the country’s lockdown regulations are relaxed.

However the event took place in August 2021, raising £625 between Just Giving’s online platform and people handing in donations at the shop.

We’d like to send a big thank you to everyone who both donated and helped support Josh. You can find out more about the event and view some images from along the way in our update.

"Patrick's knowledge about cycling is second to none."
Neil Kirkham
“I LOVE this bike shop! No, seriously I do! Usually, as a woman of an over the hill (and back) age...well, no, just as a woman in a bike shop, I'm met with either the 'bike snob' or the 'couldn't care less' type staff. So you can't begin to imagine the warmth I felt when I entered this shop and we chatted, about the weather, about BKools and Track cycling - I've never tried it, "You should, it's fun" - and they just spoke to me like a normal human being. No hard sell, all very relaxing informative conversation... Go! You'll love it x"
Gillian Walker
"I didn't really know which mountain bike I wanted and didn't have a large budget. Patrick found a bike that he thought I would like and ordered it in for me to look at with no obligation to buy. It was perfect, he got it spot on and brilliant friendly customer service."
"Pat has always provided me just the best advice and service, so I know his new venture will be top class!"
Craig Sigley
"Great service - even for the less than serious cyclist. Can’t recommend Peak Ascent Cycles enough."
Kay Williams
"Just a quick note to say thanks very much to you and Josh for your great service on Saturday. It was very nice to meet you both and I really appreciate the time you took to set the bike up and explain everything. The bike is amazing. I took it to Woburn yesterday and couldn't believe how well it rode on the trails and bridleways. (I'm sure the professional set up made a big difference!) It is fast, climbs very well and the handling is excellent. Good luck to you both with your events this year and I wish you every success with your shop."

“His knowledge and enthusiasm knows no bounds. I would recommend him to anyone."
