At Bowman Cycles we create unique, UK-designed, accessible bike frames with exceptional attention to detail. The team behind the bikes are inspired by our local environments: truly varied terrain influences both the riding and the time spent in the design studio. We want to do more than just sell you a dream; we want to help
you Ride With Spirit.

OUR SPIRIT

Every one of our bicycle frame concepts, and all of the refined details therein, were conceived astride the saddle of a bicycle. Each time we design a new frame, the initial idea matures to a finished product we are very proud of. Our basic test is this: If you are smiling when you come out of the corner, the bike has hit the mark.

Racers and discerning riders alike have one thing in common: the need for great handling. This is why here at Bowman we have a flourishing range of bicycle frames designed to provide the ride and performance characteristics that a committed cyclist demands.

Our team ride enough to know exactly what you require from your bicycle. We’ve served our time – battled for the rightful position in an aggressive bunch, forced the pace to forge a winning move, spent time in the lanes and on the trails – and therefore have a true understanding of the perfect balance of requirements.

We’re ready to explain how our products differ according to specification and intended use.

Listening is important; we know every customer is
different and deserves real advice to work out which

  • Good start to the day at @dailygoodsldn showing potential new Bowman family members around the Layhams and Layhams Disc.
We love meeting the people we chat with via email or on the phone and putting a face to a name so get in touch if you’d like to see the bikes or try them for size.
Throw good coffee and local cycling friends into the equation and you can’t ask for much more.

More news on her exciting new challenge next week, but in the meantime here’s a little insight into where it all started for her.
👇🙌
Surrey Hills. Ones of my favourite places to ride and a really special one. It was my first long ride. It was on a weekend, just a few weeks after getting a new bike, I got a route from Strava that was looking long enough, I grabbed an energy bar and two bottles of water and off I go! 
Following the route on Google maps on my phone, how I used to do it when I started riding 🤓 I left around midday, thinking that I would be back just after lunch. I got caught in the dark, without lights and no water or food left 😳 Luckily it didn't rain, it was a hot and sunny day, unusual here and I was riding with a sleeveless jersey (Now I know it's not allowed under the Velominati rules...😂 and that I need to take every single type of layer just in case the British weather decides to throw you all the seasons in one day)
Obviously I didn't know anything about riding, but I fell in love with it. 
I stopped to eat that energy bar in an empty bench that I spotted on route, the bench in front of the church at East Clandon. Every time I pass by and I see that bench, I remember that first ride by myself and it makes me smile.
After that day, cycling became an important part of my life, and I have been meeting amazing people on the way. I guess this is what happens when a sport becomes a way of life.

That is my special relationship with Surrey and cycling. Where it all began.
