Ian McNicholas is well known as the manager of the long standing former 'Somerset Bike Centre' owned by Dave Wartnaby. But when Dave retired and the main shop closed in September 2015, Ian decided to continue providing the same superb service of bike care, repair and maintenance just around the corner from the old shop. Somerset Bike Centre is now in 35 George Street, Weston-super-Mare within the 'AUTOCARE' service yard.

So pop in and say hello. You already know the superb reputation that Ian has throughout the local cycling community and his careful, considerate workmanship ensures you are using a genuine, trustworthy service that you can count on.
