About Bowland Cycles
Who am I
My name is Ian Thornhill and I am Bowland Cycles. I am proud to have been established since 2013 and I am excited by the growth and direction of my business, whilst keeping the same enthusiasm for cycling and all things bike that has kept me peddling for the past 30 plus years. Thoughout this period, I have maintained my bikes to a high standard as I am very fastidious about my work. I reguarly cycle around the Trough of Bowland and love the challenge that this area gives me. I can choose a less taxing route or push myself and do several of the big climbs and I have always enjoyed this. I never tire of this beautiful area. Alternitively, if I fancy a much faster pace I can head out over the Fylde.
I competed as a Time Trialist for Preston Wheelers CC for several years. In my final season in 2001, I competed in the BBAR which encompassed 25, 50 and 100mile Time Trials and also a 12 hour of which I am particuarly proud. I have completed many Audaxes and more recently, Sportives. At my peak, I trained at over 300 miles a week for many years. I loved my time riding at this level but other commitments forced me to reduce my training. However, cycling is still a huge part of my life and one that I really value. I try to do at least 3 training rides a week plus a longer one if time and the weather permits. I also take part in at least two, 100miles plus Sportives each year, usually le Terrier and the Cheshire Cat and perhaps a couple of Reliability runs too. I am a member of Garstand Cycling Club and I enjoy the club rides on a Saturday from the Royal Oak. I am now helping to organise the PETTS time trial series for the club and I am looking forward to this.
From my workshop in Garstang, I am earning the reputation for friendly, professional service and quality workmanship. Cyclists can feel their bikes are safe in the care of Bowland Cycles and that the services offered are done so with respect and a genuine love of all things bikes and cycling. Each customer and bike will be treated with the importance deserved and I will continue to provide this to existing customers and to all new customers too. Bowland Cycles really is 'By a Cyclist for Cyclists'.
