Career opportunities at Leisurelakesbikes.com 

Who we are: 

Set-up back in 1981 by brothers Tim and Chris Noy, who both had a background in teaching, We evolved our passion for windsurfing into a small business at Leisure Lakes, a family friendly waterpark between Preston & Southport. When the wind was down, people brought their bikes to go cycling instead of surfing. Responding to this demand the Brothers started selling bikes themselves! 

From humble beginnings, we built our first store at Leisure Lakes from the ground-up by hand!! We have regularly expanded and now have 10 locations across the UK and a huge online bike store! But the story doesn’t end there. We have plans to expand to more locations around the UK. If you share our passion for bikes we would be pleased to have you join our team
