Rainbow Cycles was started in 1st aveSawtell in ‘82’ by a Mr Bishop, who had grown up working in his father’s bicycle store in Melbourne. The store was built on providing a skilled and knowledgeable service to supply and repair local’s bicycle needs.

30yrs on Dan, Glen and Nathan work on the same principals. We live/love the cycling life and want to help others get the most from their chosen form of cycling. Whether that is cruising to the shops/school/work. Ripping out a PB at a local tri or smashing up the local mtb or road race, we have been there and can be of assistance!

Below is a brief outline of who we are.

Dan. Store owner.

15yrs at Rainbow cycles!  Competitive road cyclist Dan is clinging vainly to his youth by trying to hold off the flood of talented young riders knocking on the door of big things in cycling!  Started riding Mountain bikes in 88 when offered the chance by his parents  to earn one for Christmas if he pulled his finger out at school! They unwittingly created a monster !  Accomplished bicycle mechanic.  Is the father of four girls who think wrongly that he is the best…

Glen. Workshop manager.

CoffsHarbour’s best ever road cyclist! Glen was a major force in road cycling domestically and in France, He is still revered by some of the industry people who have been around a while and remember fearing him in races not so long ago… Triathlete and mountain bike rider, who can be seen these days supporting his son at down hill races.  Triathlon Australia’s mechanic of choice for several seasons, Glen travelled the globe servicing the bikes of our world class athletes, includung attending the Bejing Olympics.  30 yrs of serving Coffs Harbour Locals in bicycle stores.

Nathan. Retail guru.

Turbo Diesel on a bike!  You try holding his wheel! It’s not easy!  Competitive road racer, although competitive is not really a strong enough word…  Triathlete of some repute!  Still holds the bike leg course record for CoffsHarbour.  By far the easiest going and most welcoming bike shop bloke you could meet, very experienced in managing retail stores and above all great Dad to 2 kids.
