Chris Bowden has owned and managed Heaven Bikes for nearly a decade. He recently moved his business from Bonar Bridge to the small and vibrant coastal town of Dornoch. His hard work and innovation paid off recently, when Cycle Scotland voted his business ‘Best Cycle Shop in Scotland’ for 2020. Chris has cycled all over Scotland both on road and mountain bikes – he circumnavigated Scotland in 2013 with two friends and raised more than £10,000 for the Macmillan cancer charity. He is a qualified Cytech Level 3 Bike Mechanic, which is the highest technical level for cycle mechanics and he has a workshop in Dornoch where he repairs and services all types of bikes. Chris has an excellent range of bicycles for hire, including E Bikes, Hybrid Bikes and Mountain Bikes. In addition to his bike hire business, Chris has added Paddle Boarding to his services and he conducts recreational paddle boarding sessions on local lochs and may extend this to coastal locations in the coming months. Chris somehow also finds time to be a member of the local Fire Service and plays in the local pipe band!
