As above really, I am in the Leeds / Bradford area on Weds & Thurs and love looking around new bike stores. Anyone suggest any good stores in the area ???



  • All Terrain Cycles in Saltaire. It's huge and well worth a visit.
    Chevin Cycles in Otley Chevin. Their know their stuff. Trek main dealer, amongst other things.

    Woodrups on Kirkstall Road - like Bob Jackson have been making custom steel frames for decades. Also Cross Trax in Rodley and Far Headingley - a bit more mtb oriented.

    If you want random bits and bobs, second hands stuff etc, Recycle in Headingley is a nice place to visit and if have a touring bike (amongst other things) Spa Cycles in Harrogate shouldn't be missed.

    For posh, interesting road bikes (ie not Giant or Trek or Scott etc :lol: ) Triangle in Horsforth is well worth checking out. Then there is Ellis Briggs in Shipley (just down the road from All Terrain) and there is a branch of Edinburgh cycle co-operative in Chapel Allerton.

    Plus the new Evans near Leeds train station......
    Faster than a tent.......
  • A bit outside Leeds is Cyclesense in Tadcaster. Good range of road and MTB, including Giant, Cube, Genesis, Koga Miyata and Van Nicholas.

    Also have a good range of accessories and clothing. A really nice family run shop.

    Definitely a +1 for a visit to Woodrups. The guys in there are excellent, the stock is brilliant and they're always up for a chat (some great stories!).

    I spotted that Evans is a bit of a dirty whisper ;) up to now I've never really been a fan, I sometimes glance into the one in Castleford and no one's ever really been that friendly - however, the guys in the new one around the corner from Leeds station are sterling blokes. The manager has just helped me out BIG TIME with a charity auction I've done and there's a nice selection of road stuff. The location's crap for parking but if you find yourself in the city centre it's worth a look...

    If you head to Edinburgh Cycle Co-op in Chapel Allerton make sure you pop round the corner to 'The Sunshine Bakery' for the best cake in the country. The lads in EBC will point you in the right direction. Prepare to get fat.
