City Centre Cycles picking up speed

ROCKHAMPTON'S Roseleigh Martins is enjoying the ride to success.

The City Centre Cycles owner has operated from the south side CBD for the past 21 years, but is now expanding to Rocky's north.

Roseleigh said she was looking forward to reliving the excitement of opening the doors to her second store, Bikes on High.

"I'm really excited to have a shop on each side of town because it's a lot more convenient for our customers and we can expand our range," she said.

"City Centre Cycles is known more as a family store and we want to keep it that way, so the new store will be our prestigious store with a lot more up-market bikes on offer."

The 38-year-old said she had noticed the cycling community in Rockhampton had increased in recent years.

"There's also a lot more bike paths now which means a lot more people are riding and these days there's pretty much a bike to suit every individual for every purpose," she said.

Bikes on High is located at 83 High St and will open on Saturday, November 1.
