Wareham Branch

Welcome to Wareham Branch


Our Cyclexperience store in Wareham opened in 2008 in our (almost) unique station location (yes we are actually in the station buildings next to the ticket office) and we have been focused since then on providing the Purbeck area with high quality bike servicing, sales and cycle hire. We have a qualified Cytech mechanic and experienced wheel builder (with plenty of practice building fat and semi fat wheels as well as regular stuff (not just for us either – some of you may well be riding a Cyclexperience fat wheel without realising if you’ve purchased it in the local area) ). We are also a authorized Fox service centre and can tackle everything from a lowers service to a full strip and rebuild of your suspension.

Our aim is to offer the best bike workshop in Dorset able to tackle anything you may need fixing. We sell MTB, road, cyclocross, hybrid and kids bikes, all the usual parts and accessories and a whole lot of stuff inbetween! We pride ourselves on offering good, honest and open advice whether on a bike purchase, a component upgrade, clothing choice or suspension setup. All our staff are passionate about bikes and cycling we just want everyone to be able to get out into our amazing local scenery and make the most of what the Isle of Purbeck has to offer the cyclist. The webpage is just a guide to what we do in-store as we passionately believe the best way to get a customer on the right bike with the right kit is via face to face contact so please pop by and see us or call us on 01929 556601 if you want something you can’t see!

This is the page for our Wareham retail store, if you are looking for information on cycle hire from either our Wareham or Norden hire centres please check our Purbeck cycle hire site or call us (its the same number – 01929 556601)

Meet The Team

Graham Beard
Store Manager / Mechanic / Fox Technicial / Bike Geek

Graham (AKA Bungle) has been in the Cyclexperience family for far longer than he cares to remember, working his way up from a lowly hire assistant in Brockenhurst sometime in the early 2000’s to opening and running the Wareham store since 2008. There was a gap for a couple of years when he defected up north to run a bike shop in Lancaster but he saw sense and came back down south to work for us again! A cyctech qualified mechanic, wheelbuilder and authorized Fox suspension technician there is not much that he hasn’t seen or worked on over the years. A massive bike geek if your looking for shimano part numbers from the nineties then look no further!!

Current bikes: Genesis Lattitude Titanium (26″ trail hardtail), Genesis Fortitude (single speed fully rigid 29er), Genesis Vapour (cyclocross), Charge Cooker (29er xc with gears and suss fork) plus a random collection of other frames and parts!

Simon Jempson
Head of Sales / Official Cyclexperience Singlespeedologist

Simon (AKA Si) started in the big bad corporate world after uni but then saw the light and after a spell at our good friends down in Swanage made the jump to Cyclexperience in Wareham and hasn’t looked back since! A keen singlespeed mountain biker, along with colleague Paul they took third place at the 2013 Bristol Bikefest in the singlespeed pairs category. Simon also has an almost encyclopedic knowledge of the trails through Wareham Forest so if your looking for route advice speak to him. Simon is our bike sales specialist so feel free to talk to him regarding any new bike or kit purchases.

Current bikes: Jones Titanium (singlespeed 29er MTB), Genesis Equilibrium Ti road bike, Zealous Division MTB Salsa La Cruz Titanium cyclocross, Salsa El Mariachi.

Paul Axon
Friday Superstar / Mechanic

Paul (AKA Paxo) has worked with us on a Friday (plus a few other random days) since we opened back in 2008. Whilst his ‘real’ job might involve messing about with big engineering on tanks and APC’s he’s much happier on a Friday in the workshop getting your bikes sorted for you. A stalwart of the local cycling scene for many years and founder member of the Purbeck Peloton Cycling Club, Paul’s knowledge of the local area for both MTB and road riding is legendary. His palmarès are too long to list fully but include: 3rd place 2013 Ritchey Bristol Bikefest Singlespeed pairs (with Simon), Finisher of Bontrager 24/12 2013 (team with Graham & Simon and others), Le Etape finisher 3 times, Fred Whitton finisher, Wessex Cyclocross league top ten finisher, plus numerous other sportive events and long rides (100km +).

Current bikes: Giant TCR Advanced SL (road bike with full dura-ace 9000 and selection of very nice Mavic and Shimano wheels – 6.9kg), Kinesis Racelight Granfondo Ti (titanium road winter/commute bike), Giant XTC composite (carbon race 29er MTB), Salsa El Mariachi (singlespeed xc 29er), Giant TCX (cyclocross), plus a selection of other frames and parts!
