About Us

Born from our enthusiasm for adventure sports and navigation, we wanted better specialist equipment for racing.

Mapdec Old LogoHave you ever been at a MTBO or Adventure Race and seen the crazy collection of home made map boards? Unlikely, but that is how we started making a little device to hold a map to your handlebars. We still sell the Mapdec map board. 


Mapdec New LogoIn 2016 things got serious. We had scribbles of ideas in note books and lots of 'what if' chats over coffee and beer. Then one day an opportunity came along to partner with Lakes Cycles. In late 2017 Lakes Cycles ceased trading and we took on the building, as our service and coaching business proved to be popular than retail was. We expanded our work with Kendal College providing bike maintenance education. We also expanded our fitness offering to include strength classes and coaching. 

We are based in Kendal, at the gateway to the Lake District, but you can often find us at local events and races too.
