About Us

Happy to help

help us make our shop, your shop

We have a lot of parts, clothing and of course bikes in the shop already. But, if you are making a special trip and something on our website takes your fancy you can ‘reserve’ it so that you know it’s here to see or try on.  Use our online sales site and click ‘reserve’ . We will let you know when it’s in the shop for you to see. It costs you nothing and there is no obligation to buy. We also do home delivery of most things if you prefer.

By ‘Reserving’ in advance you’re helping us  stock the shop with the right products.  The catalogue of available items is massive – 100,000 items – have a look here.

You can also book your servicing online or contact us  to book hire bikes  or electric demos.

Everyone's Welcome

We have built the shop around welcoming and knowledgeable people.  With a wide range of experience the staff are here to help.  With a busy coffee counter you might also meet one or more of our customers to share information and local knowledge.  It’s not just about the staff here, it’s a busy hub of cycling folk coming in for a blether.

G&G Service Package for new bikes

Because your bike has been built by a registered dealer you have a full warranty.  This is often a problem if you buy through an online retailer and something goes wrong.  Don’t worry, if there is a problem we will deal with any warranty issues so you don’t have to.

Your bike is serviced prior to you getting it, so it’s ready to go. Ride away from the shop with confidence

All the labour is covered by us, you can bring your bike in as often as you like for servicing in the first year.  You will only pay for parts if they are subject to wear and tear and you’ll still get our Shimano Price Promise.

All accessories bought from us will be fitted for FREE in the first year.

We are happy to help you make  adjustments to the bike to help you find the best positioning for saddle, bar and seatposts

 

Advice and suggestions for advancing your cycling and getting the most out of your rides. If you’re fairly new to cycling you will advance fast.  This often means that we need to reassess and alter your riding position by the end of the season, or for going into winter training.

Don't worry about where to leave your bike when you cycle to town. Leave it with us to look after. We can often sort out little niggles before you collect it.

As a valued customer we will promise to buy back your kids bikes bought from us when it's time for a bigger size.

Get them a well fitting, lightweight bike and it will help them become a skilled and confident rider. All very well but these kind of bikes are a bit more expensive and kids grow so fast?

Coffee

Anyone who has been to the shop can’t help but notice that there is another distinctive aroma, other than bike tyres! We have a totally over the top classic Italian machine and even better we know how to use it!!

Routes/clubs

Part of what makes this a great place to ride is the massive choice of options of places to ride. If we haven’t been there ourselves chances are we know somebody who does. Many of the local club riders are our friends/customers so we can point you in the right direction.

Coffee!

 We love strong Italian coffee and so do many of our friends and customers. What better reason to pop in for a blether.
