Britain's Biggest Bike Shop
Our flagship store is located on Rutland Water's beautiful North Shore and is our original hire centre, established in 1981 by our founder Dave Archer. Inside is a cyclist's paradise, newly refurbished in Spring 2012, and a wealth of cycling expertise. The doors open on to a lakeshore perfect for family cycling or a longer ride - a full lap of the reservoir, or a pedal through the scenic country lanes of Rutland.
