Bike shops are as much a destination as they are a shop. Somewhere to grab a coffee or a cuppa, get a bike fit, do a spinning session or meet others for a ride… All that and you still get to squeeze the tyres, flick the top tube and gaze longingly at the bike that’s just out of your price range.
Across the country, cycle shops that have been a regular fixture of their local high streets for decades are closing down in their droves. We need support our local shops and buck this trend.

In 2017 we launched the biennial campaign to find Britain’s best road bike shop and Britain’s best MTB shop. Over 21,000 readers voted and we were able to champion some of Britain’s best independent bike shops.
In 2019 we will be asking for your votes again, so watch this space.
