About the employer

In June 2014 Dorset Cycle-Life opened in Poundbury, Dorchester. Over the next 6 years, we brought e-bikes and all the benefits of riding them to a huge number of people. Move forward to January 2021 and the world is a different place. Global pandemic, new methods of moving ourselves around in urban environments and an over-arching understanding that we must look after our health, and that of the planet. The E-Bike CAFE @ Deheers has at its heart a continuation of our existing bike sales operation (Dorset Cycle Life) with the addition of two new elements. The cafe and bike, e bike repair and maintenance. Dorset Cycle Life has moved totally from Poundbury and relocated to this beautiful unique location in one of the sunniest and most cyclist-friendly locations in the South. This development is a natural progression for the original Dorset Cycle Life business, allowing us to offer clients a real focus and community. The development of our original business, Dorset Cycle Life, to the new E-Bike CAFE @ Deheers was born out of chance meeting between three of the people involved. We are very aware that we have a fantastic community of customers, riders and friends all of whom get e-bikes, the benefits and the sheer fun they bring to anyone’s life.
