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.
