Boardman Bikes is proud to announce the development of its World Class Centre at The Valley in Evesham, Worcestershire, UK.
Based in the heart of England the new centre will give cyclists access to cutting edge facilities including cycling specific wind tunnel, performance testing lab, event space and a Boardman concept retail store. Boardman Bikes will also be relocating its Head Quarters to the site.
“Creating a Performance Centre that’s truly accessible to everyone has been a dream of mine since the early 90’s. When I was racing I was able to see the affect of every choice I made. Now that opportunity will be available to all, be they Sportive rider or Tour de France contender” said Chris Boardman MBE, Chairman of Boardman Bikes.
The Valley has been selected as the site for the new centre due to its central location, transport links, proximity to local facilities and safe cycling network.
“I am absolutely delighted that an iconic international brand like Boardman Bikes has chosen Evesham to develop their new headquarters and innovative centre. In addition to being a major economic boost I am confident from our discussions with Boardman that working together and with other groups we will be able to also provide a great legacy to the huge success of GB cycling at the Rio Olympics by helping to boost local cycling participation and activity” said Richard Morris, Executive Board member for Economic Growth and Housing, Wychavon District Council.
Paul Goodes , Managing Director of Eagle One, added – “We are delighted to have secured Boardman as the first tenant for the next phase of The Valley. Subject to receipt of planning consent”.
A Planning Application has been submitted and the project team continues to work closely with Wychavon Council and the site owner Eagle One.
