WHO WE ARE

GREAT BIKES - GOOD CYCLING - FOR EVERYONE.

At Bowman, we all love cycling. Simply put, we want to share that passion with as many people as we can. Not just as a bike company but also as a group of cyclists who want more people on bikes - of every type and in all the places.

 

As well as producing the best bikes we can, for as wide a range of uses as we're able at the time, the team at Bowman also wants to play its part in increasing accessibility to our great transport option, pastime and sport.

 

Bowman always has, and always will celebrates diversity. For everyone here, it's a fundamental belief that a staff compromising of people with the widest possible variety of experiences and backgrounds is fundamental to the continued growth of not just us as a company but, also to the great activity we're actively trying to promote.

Great bikes and people make the world a better place.

 

CREATING SAFE SPACE TO HELP CYCLING EXPAND

When we moved into our new space this year, a key element in our plan was to develop somewhere people could spend time. This is not simply so we can have a lovely place to come visit Bowman and check out the latest bikes and frames, or set up a demo ride, but also so we can open up cycling.

A strong driver for us here at Bowman is the wish to open up cycling to people who may previously have found it difficult to engage with, or who may have had some issues or tensions in their previous interactions.

Bowman HQ is open and available for each and every cycling community to use if they have similar goals, that is - growing the whole cake.

We're here to support and provide a metaphorical and physical safe space to help you grow your cycling group or project.

So, if this may be of help to you - get in touch.

(The opening of the safe space is always subject to current Covid 19 safety restrictions and may be paused or postponed to ensure staff, public and users are comfortable with its ongoing use)

THE CIP GUIDING PRINCIPLES


MAKING GREAT CYCLING ATTAINABLE

Great bikes for riders after something a little out of the ordinary; 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.


PEOPLE

"After a lifetime of riding bikes, and a couple of decades working through product management, marketing, testing, journalism, design and writing within the bike industry, I have found myself at the helm of a bike brand that sprung from nowhere but my imagination and experience.
From BMX racing in my youth, through my teen and twenties mountain biking in the UK and beyond, to road racing and adventures after moving south. My aim is for Bowman Cycles to encapsulate every moment I have ever spent on two wheels. To capture the smile and sense of fun that every good ride gives you."

PLACE

Bowman Cycles Bowman's Green Map

WHAT'S IN A NAME?

We started on the northern edge of 127 hectares of open, wild heathland. On this heath, in 1785, the Society of Royal Kentish Bowmen made their home at a building that became known as Bowmans Lodge. Presided over by the Prince of Wales, who went on to reign as George IV, this first archery society with royal approval since the Norman conquests became very popular. Subsequently, the surrounding locale became known as Bowmans, with buildings, roads, farms and quarries bearing the name over the next 250 years. Bowman Cycles is just the latest in a long line of endeavours to pay homage to the area’s history.
