Conway Cycles – 40 Years in the making…
Conway Cycles in Loughmacrory, County Tyrone, has been providing a top class sales and servicing requirement to the cycling industry now for 40 years.
Pat Conway initially made the decision to go into the Cycling trade after buying a bicycle for his son, Sean, on his 12th birthday back in September 1976.
“I remember it well. Daddy got me a 5 speed Raleigh Solo bike, white and green, and from the first moment I got on I was hooked. I just loved cycling and have been immersed in it ever since. Daddy seen this and decided it was time to get involved in the business end of it and remarkably here we are celebrating our 40th year in business”
Sean Conway now runs the business in the heart of thriving local community, Loughmacrory, and sees a wide range of customers who travel from all over to avail of the excellent deals and well renowned service that is on offer at CONWAY CYCLES.
The sport of cycling of course has seen a major revival in recent times, including the launch of the new BIKE WEEK, which has been the case with a number of healthy sports and activities, and cycling and triathlons have made considerable headlines in the mid Tyrone area in recent years.
“In terms of cycling I remember joining Strule Wheelers in Omagh when I was about 13 or 14 years old. I would have taken part in time trials and a plenty of races over the years but I’m really enjoying now seeing what has been an immense recent boom again in the sport. The past 6 or 7 years in particular has seen a major rise in popularity in cycling and I’m just hoping that it sustains well into the future. I don’t think cycling has ever been as strong as it has been in the past number of years and that can only be of great benefit to everyone taking part.”

Conway Cycles and it’s owner, Sean, have certainly seen the ups and downs in terms of cycling as a sport and, while the weather in ireland may not always be ideal, there is no question that more and more people are becoming immersed in the sheer joy and exuberance associated with simply “riding a bike”. Indeed the vast number of celebrities out there who have taken up the sport in the past decade is testament to that and this popularity has trickled down to communities everywhere.
“I really don’t like the gym. I like experiences, so I take any chance I get to go on a bicycle.”
In an age when “Health and Social Benefits” are major aspects being pursued by so many, the tremendous elements of which can be derived from Cycling has never been so significant. The old saying that “It’s just like riding a bike” should ring true and there is no doubt that more and more people should be taking up the challenge whether purely recreational or to actually go that step further and compete. Sean Conway is very passionate about this aspect of cycling…
“There is no better sport out there in terms of getting fit and the healthy and social benefits which you get out of it are second to none. I am in no doubt there is no better, healthier activity than cycling. It doesn’t have the same tough impact on the joints as running would have and really it is a brilliant activity for anyone, of any age and to be honest you get all shapes, sizes and fitness levels of people taking part in cycling now. That is the real beauty of it and I believe that people everywhere are now realising this and that is why more and more people are getting involved and of course all are enjoying the excellent social part of the sport and the many events which are now being staged all over.”
Overall, the sport continues to excel and grow and there are now so many clubs out there that really there is no excuse not to get in and try it out.
