Gold Coast Bike Shop

Gold Coast Bike Shop

Six years ago, when Terry Bosworth suggested to his wife of 20 years, Sheridan, that they open a bike shop, she looked at him incredulously.  Huh??  Sure honey, whatever you want.  Little did Sheridan know that, six years later, she would be happy as Larry working full time as part-owner and manager of Storm Cycles at Tugun.  Terry had worked in the corporate world for 20 years, and was keen for a lifestyle change.

As a mechanical engineer, and a keen cyclist, Terry felt instantly at home in their new business.  Sheridan climbed a steep learning curve during those first few months, and found her niche in helping ladies make the step into a new bike, whether it be a cruiser, hybrid, or their first road racing bike.  They make a great team. At Storm Cycles we love to see people getting out and enjoying their bikes.  Whether you are an experienced rider looking for the latest gear, or love to ride your hybrid or cruiser bike to the beach for a swim, or maybe you commute to and from work, we are keen to help you with your investment in your joyfulness and your health.  If you have a cycling need, we will help you fill it. When you visit Storm Cycles you will not only be greeted with friendly and approachable hospitality, you will be sure to get personalised expert advice and assistance second to none.  Everyone’s cycling journey in different.  We will listen, and make recommendations based on your personal cycling situation.

If you have friends and family visiting our beautiful Gold Coast, you might be interested to know that we also hire out bikes.  We have a selection of cruisers to enjoy our beautiful bike paths and beaches, and we also have carbon road bikes so that visitors can keep up their exercise and, and explore further afield into our green behind the gold.

Storm Cycles also has a fully equipped workshop to service and repair your bike.  Terry’s specialty is electric bikes, whether you would like to have a kit custom built to your own bike, or purchase a bike and kit package, we can help you choose an electric bike that will suit your budget and lifestyle. We provide all types of repairs from tube replacement to a full, gold standard service.

As an extension to encouraging more ladies to get out on their road bikes, Sheridan has started a ladies only cycling club, MadonnaVelo. Sheridan also conducts Confidence Classes for ladies who would like to get out and about on their bike more, but don’t know where to ride or how to start. Storm Cycles is open Monday to Friday 8:30am to 5:00pm and Saturday 8:30am to 1:00pm.  You’re welcome to drop in any time for a visit.

She Rides Spring Program

She Rides. For fitness. To make friends. For freedom!

There’s nothing quite like riding a bike to experience the feeling of freedom. For most it quickly brings back childhood memories of riding with friends, having fun outdoors, being fit and active. But for many women, somewhere along the road to adulthood, the bike gets put away and they stop riding.

 She Rides is an introductory riding program focused on fitness, skills development and creating a social riding community of women – to get you ready to make riding part of your everyday life.

The program, available at Palm Beach this spring, is designed to run over eight weeks, with one session each week. The program includes face-to-face sessions with your accredited coach, in a small group environment, together with a three-month recreational membership to Cycling Australia.

Following the successful program throughout winter and spring, registration is now open for the autumn program, starting in mid March 2015, at sherides.com.au.

Cost: $149 (early bird rego).  $169 (regular rego)

Reason Why

In 2013 Cycling Australia undertook a research study into women and cycling. They discovered fitness and health, together with the fun social aspect, were the top reasons women choose to ride. What it also highlighted however was that more women would ride, or ride more regularly, if they felt safer, had access to other women who ride at the same level or access to organised group rides.  This research study became the foundation for a new and exciting vision – to create a national community of women who ride – She Rides
