Store Manager – Andy

Andy’s cycling expertise lie mostly within time trials, combined with regular sportives. However, he rode Tour of Flanders this year with no training!

His highlight while working at Evans Cycles so far:

“Finally getting to work after the Beast from the East stopped me from getting to Norwich Store on my first day, to start working with the incredible team there. We then went straight to BikeFest (Evans Cycles internal staff day) – what a first couple of days!”

Interests Outside of Cycling: Skiing

 

Assistant Store Manager – John

John’s cycling background primarily is road based, ironically starting off on a semi sturdy mountain bike, commuting a 30 mile round trip. He then eventually moved onto road cycling as a hobby and made it his main mode of transportation.

His highlight while working at Evans Cycles so far:

“All of the RIDE IT Events I’ve attended!”

Interests Outside of Cycling: “There’s a life outside of cycling?!”

 

Workshop Manager – Stef

 

 

Stef’s a keen road racer throughout the summer months, and once the weather starts to dip, you can find him heavily involved in cyclocross.

His highlight while working at Evans Cycles so far:

“The best moment I have had with Evans so far was going the Central Support Office and trying out a range of mountain bikes over Surrey Hills.”

Interests Outside of Cycling: Stef has three cats: Harry, Barry and Dave who take up the rest of his time.

 

>> Cycling equipment: the kit you need <<

 

Other staff members that make up the team include…

Mark K (Mechanic) who’s highlight while working with Evans Cycles is taking on the Surrey Hills. In his spare time he enjoys camping trips and rock crawling.

Mark D (Bike-builder) jumped at the opportunity of tearing up the trails over Surrey Hills. Outside of cycling, his interests lie in cricket, snowboarding, gardening and spending time with his family.

Toma (Order book manager) took to a mountain bike for the first time over Surrey Hills. Beside cycling, Toma enjoys hiking, reading and cinema.

Tom (Sales assistant) still remembers selling his first bike (a proud moment!) and is a keen chemistry student.

 

 

Jacob (Sales assistant) also was thrilled taking on the trails over Surrey Hills! His interests outside of cycling include writing, gym and cinema.

Montel (Sales assistant) is a keen off road cyclist, who also enjoys gaming, basketball and dodgeball.

Elliott (Sales assistant) loves everything mountain biking related. He also loves anything French related, previously living in Paris for four years.

Great to see that Evans is coming to Ipswich!
May I ask if there are any women on your sales team? as the list mentioned seems to indicate not. A shame as it is always good to promote and highlight women in a still largely male dominated sport! Plus it is nice to be able to ask fellow women for advice on bikes, kit and accessories

I bought a bike from your Chelmsford (as Ipswich wasn’t open then!)
I’d like to book my bike in for its 6 week service please.
I can’t find my order number but the transaction number is 75544.
My bike is a Cannondale bad boy 1.
