About Us

Our Story

Kalamunda Cycles has been a fixture in the hills since being established in the late 1970s by cycling legend Steele Bishop. After changing hands a couple of times the store was taken over by local legends Tim and Jo Bennett in 2004 until the end of 2023.  Just before Xmas 2023, shop mechanic Clive Jones & Rhianna Farrell purchased the store, and continue to provide friendly, independent service for our awesome customers.

Both Clive and Rhianna have been active members of the mountain bike and cycling community, and live locally in the Perth Hills.  Clive runs the shop with his extensive knowledge of products, and with his background as a car mechanic, there isn’t much he can’t fix!  Rhianna has kept her day job doing sciencey things, and takes care of the social media, marketing and business side.

You’ll also find our stalwart Justin Garvin (Jav) on the tools and a friendly face ready to help select the best product for you.



Meet The Team

Clive Jones


Clive has lost count of the number of bikes he has owned, ridden and raced over the past ~25yrs!  But he does remember his favourites.  Clive has a long history of XC racing and also dabbles on the enduro side, and anyone who has followed him into singletrack knows he only has one speed = Flat Out.

Clive is a self-confessed bike nerd, and he makes it his business to know everything about bikes and products.

He is extremely passionate about riding, racing and problem-solving to make your bike work better.  Pop in to the shop and see Clive for your bespoke bike builds, new bike selection, or tricky to fix issues.

Rhianna Farrell


Rhianna likes to think she’s owned more bikes than Clive, and she’s probably right!  She has likewise been racing and riding bikes for the past ~25yrs, and continues to enjoy mixing things up in XC, XCM, gravel, road and a sprinkling of cyclocross.

Whilst Rhianna doesn’t work in the shop full-time, you can find her at races or out on the trail and road.  Check our Facebook Events section, as Rhianna regularly runs women’s mountain bike rides.   So have a chat with Rhianna for advice on your new bike selection, organised rides, or general tips with racing and riding.
