Temple Cycles was founded by Matt. Born and raised in Somerset, he has been a keen cyclist from the age of 9. He's is into all sorts of cycling but started out riding mountain bikes and bmx. He studied Mechanical Engineering at Bristol University, while at the same time running a small vintage restoration business for classic road bikes. He then started designing his own custom frames and creating one-off bikes. This later evolved into Temple Cycles.
Along the way he teamed up with Jimmy who helps with making the bikes and events.
We try to keep as much of the production process in the UK as possible without the cost getting too high, and work with local businesses and suppliers.
