Been meaning to write this for some while now! Can’t recommend Patrick Healy... enough. I rang up at 14.30 on a Tuesday to discuss a new bike for my four year old, Lily-Mae. Pat explained he was about to shut up shop due to shorter hours with Covid-19, I’ll hang on for you though, by quarter to three I was there and the brochures were already out with two sample bicycles to look at!!! By 15.00 we’d made a choice and Pat was on the phone ordering the bike 😀 Within 24 hours we were picking the bike up, complete with stabilisers. What a service. Lily-Mae was over the moon. Thanks again pal, much appreciated 😀read more

Helped me out by fitting some parts... for me when litterally no other shop would. even did a social distancing bike fit for me too! you can clearly see patrick is very passionate about what he does! he was more passionate about my bike than I am 😂. Definitely wont take my bike anywhere else from now on 10 out of 10 👌read more

Patrick Healy, Peak Ascent Cycles

I’ve already spent three 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.

Peak Ascent Cycles is about sharing my love for all things cycling. It’s an opportunity to give back what cycling has given to me over the years.

I’ve created this article which gives a brief overview of my cycling journey.
