HOW IT ALL BEGAN:
Michael Maiden (Founder) in Morzine
I'm Michael Maiden the founder of Wheelie Bike Shop. After competing in my first downhill race when I was 13 I was obsessed. My life revolved around racing, being the fastest I possibly could and having the best equipment. When pushing the limits to get the fastest times inevitably crashes occurred and things broke!

It was at this point I started to learn how to fix my own bike, next thing I knew I was selling my services to friends and family, and then the general public, Wheelie Bike Shop was born!!. I was constantly trying to develop the business and the most obvious next step was to start selling products online. I ran the business while at school for a few years which was very difficult juggling homework and running the business!! I now run Wheelie Bike Shop full time and put my heart and soul into it.

I hope the business will one day be a household name in the cycling world but for now you can buy with confidence knowing that there's a young guy who appreciates every order as it makes my dream come that little bit closer.
