Service to Cycling

Since 1953




We are the longest established  cycle business in the area selling bikes since 1953 and our success has been down to customer satisfaction and attention to detail.

The business was started by Harry Wood at Number 86 St peters Avenue and over the years as the business expanded numbers 84 and 88 were also purchased.

Bike shops have always sold a variety of products and in the early days sold electrical items and paraffin.

In the 60`s until the 1980`s we also sold a large range of motor accessories and model kits.

Harry`as son Steve came in to the business in 1977 and after Harry retired the business changed back again to becoming a Cycle and Repair specialist business.

With the changing face of retail, in 2019  Steve decided to downsize the business to the property at number 88 only By doing this we are still able to order a vast range of bikes , but at highly competitive prices.

The workshop and spares services remain unchanged and we carry out repairs to all makes of bicycle.

2024 saw Steve reach retirement age and close the family business.

New beginnings

I had worked with Steve for the last 17 years in the shop and doing most of the repair work.

When Steve retired I started this as a  new business business but still called Woods Cycles honouring the legacy of the Wood family and working from the same premises.

I shall be doing servicing, repairs and selling cycle parts and accessories and look forward to meeting customers old and new.
