We are a family cycle business started in 2009. We have lots of experience and technical know how. We promote biking for everyone in Nailsworth and the surrounding areas. For fun, fitness, sport and a green and great way of getting around.
You will find us in Frogmarsh Mill, South Woodchester, just off the A46 (ample parking) not far from Stroud and just over a mile from the lively cotswold town of Nailsworth, Gloucestershire. We are a short drive from Wotton Under Edge, Tetbury, Cheltenham, Gloucester and Bristol with plenty of tea shops and restaurants in Nailsworth for refreshment.
We love all types of bike riding! You don’t need tattoos to ride mountain or a physique like Froomy to ride road, so no intimidation, you will be in safe hands. We do stylish smoooth riding electric bikes to help with those who need a electric motor assist. Great for commuting or those wanting to exercise without too much huff and puff. Keep those joints moving, motion is lotion!
As well as selling new bikes we also repair and service for you to get the best enjoyment from your bike and cycling. If it is a hassle for you to get the bike to us for a small charge we can pick up and return your bike to you ready to ride.
We currently ride trail and road for fun but have considerable bike riding knowledge to pass on having been connected to the professional bike riding scene for years.
My brother-in-law Phil Edwards was British National Champion, came fifth in the Munich Olympic road race as well as riding the Tour of Italy and Paris Roubaix to mention just a few of his achievements. Riding as lieutenant for Francesco Moser in Italy in the late 70’s, the Sanson team road the Giro and other classics on steel bikes.
Steel frames give a smooth riding characteristic and although they weigh in a little heavier than carbon, crafted by artisan frame builders they have a beautiful aesthetic look. If you love that look we are please to announce that new for 2017 at The Bike Works we can offer custom bike builds with the Cinelli Nemo Tig or Supercorsa steel frames hand made in Italy.
We have a selected range of accessories, clothing and shoes, for comfort, performance and (why not) a bit of style. We have all the essentials you would need to ride, but not necessarily all you want so you may wish to telephone first to see what we have in stock. We have an extensive range available by order too.
We have super lightweight Frog and Orbea Kids bikes for little sprogs on cogs too!
The great thing about cycling is you can cycle from age 3 to 93 at slow pace or race pace. So no excuses come and see us. What ever your interest, Mountain, Road, Commuting or Leisure riding there is a bike for you. Come and see what we can do to help you get the best out of your cycling.
