About Us

Who Are We?

Surrey Hills Cycleworks is an independently owned bike shop in Leatherhead, staffed by passionate cyclists and situated in the beautiful Surrey Hills. Born out of the long respected Cycleworks, Dave Farmer took over the shop for his own in late 2016 with a view to continuing not only the 'bricks and mortar', but also to build a friendly, cohesive local cycling community along with other local retailers.

The Surrey Hills Connection

Dave has worked in the local bike trade his whole adult life and has always lived in the locality. Born in Haslemere hospital, he grew up on the side of Hydon's Ball in Hambledon. This shaped his knowledge of the area and his bike riding from an early age.

Put simply: cycling in the Surrey Hills is his life, his passion.
