Meet father and son Mark and Alex Partridge. Mark started the business at 18 years old in 1980. He began buying and selling second hand bicycles from the family double garage in Gissons Lane, Kennford. Marks father, Derrick joined the business in 1990 and it operated as a Partnership until 1999. During the early years the business quickly grew, a premises was required and the current site was acquired in 1993. The purpose built store was completed as two separate projects between 1994 and 1997. Mark has been in the Cycle Trade for more than 40 years and has stood down from the day to day running of business with his son Alex at the helm.
The cycle industry has seen many changes over the years and Partridge Cycles has been a proud family run business paving the way for independent cycle retailing.
