It's Small Business Saturday on 2nd December and we wanted to celebrate by saying thank you to everyone who chooses to shop with us rather than larger commercial stores. Your custom means we are able to carry on supporting the work of Julian House and to provide you with our top quality service.
We are really passionate about keeping you on your bike throughout the year. We are happy to give best practice advise on what kit to use, based on our collective years cycling the U.K and the world.
We are also a fully professional Bike Workshop alongside selling new and refurbished bikes. Whether you have a 1950's clunker, Modern Hybrid/MTB/Road Bike and beyond, we can help.
We look forward to meeting you, and remember - "The Internet can't fix your bike, but we can..."

In our Exeter store the Bobbin range of bikes are a particular hit with many people happy to be buying something a little different; Bobbin is British based brand producing well made and relatively inexpensive bikes.
Simon, the store manager said:
"A strong motivation for customers buying from us, is the fact that we are a social enterprise. It is something that local people are very much in favour of, and they like to see that their money is going to a great cause. We often say to customers that we are a normal professional bike shop with a different social outcome."
