How We Got Started
The Shop was opened in 2013 following the success of the British Cycling Team in the 2012 Tour De France and the London Olympics.
A family run business, the owner Chris must have received a cycling gene from his ancestors. The cycling line runs back to around 1900 when a great great great Grandfather was one of the founding members of the local Leek Cyclists Club!
Chris who has been a member of the Leek Cyclists Club and Stone Wheelers Cycling Club has participated in most branches of the sport including Road Racing, Track Racing, Time Trialling, Mountain Biking, Cyclo Cross and Sportives. Chris was a multiple North Staffordshire, Manchester and Midlands Champion in Time Trialling and Hill Climb events whilst his eldest son, Simon, was a North Staffordshire Track League Champion and has finished in the top twenty in the Midlands Cyclo Cross League on several occasions. Both his sons have competed in many cyclo cross, TT and mountain bike events and his daughter follows the big races. These days Chris enjoys recreational cycling including rides on the local trails and some short distance Time Trialling.
The shop caters for both men and women with a wide range of different cycles including electric bikes and accessories. We also carry out servicing and repairs (see details in separate section).
Please feel free to pop into the shop to browse or for advice on all aspects of cycling.
We look forward to seeing you soon...
We have our own range of clothing, produced by local company ProVision, in the shop colours available priced as follows:
£38.00 Short Sleeve Jersey
£48.00 Long Sleeve Jersey
£96.00 Wind & Water Proof Winter Jersey
We have bike fitting equipment in the shop to make sure you are buying a cycle which SUITS you (Not one that just looks like a bargain on the net!!) . Note many brands indicate size by measuring in different ways so we would always advise trying out first.
We can also offer the opportunity to try our demonstration E bike (Lectro Peak 24). Just bring along a passport or Driving Licence ID and a deposit and arrange a convenient time for a quick spin on our test area.
