Cyclestreets.net is a brilliant little website for bicyclists. Just enter where you are and where you want to go and it will take you a proper cyclists route, tell you the distance, how quiet or otherwiseit will be and how many calories you will burn completing it.
This is extraordinary. You can actually choose a route to avoid unnecessary hills. Excellent for the part-time cyclist!

Evans Cycles

77-81 The Cut, Waterloo, London SE1 8LL, UK – 020 7928 4785

Good natured and attentive service, particularly for an Evans (they aren't always). Sorted my puncture quickly and cheaply, and price matched chain reaction and wiggle for some other gear I picked up in the store while waiting. The high street would be poorer without these places.

Dear Evans - so many 1 star reviews says a lot, so I have decided to purchase my new bike somewhere else. Reviews matters - best to take note.

Cycle Surgery

12-13 Bishops Square, London E1 6EG, UK – 020 7392 8920

This is one of the best cycle stores for me because the staff are always friendly and helpful and they listen carefully what customers say...

Go here! Not other cycle shops nearby *cough* The staff here have helped me no end; teaching me how to change a tire, buying in new pedals, always helping if I have a bit rattling off my bike and NEVER have they been patronising, ignorant or oversold anything to me or been pushy. A lot of work they have done for free; they have won my custom for years to come!

Cycle Surgery

72 Chiswell St, London EC1Y 4AB, UK – 020 7562 8500

Great staff in here. They've always been very helpful, giving me small parts for free (replacement bells, M bolts etc).

i found the staff very helpful and knowledgeable. the store has a good range of products from bikes to accessories and i was able to find what i wanted quickly and easily. it can get quite busy over lunch time so i try to go outside of these times if i need any actual help or advice.

Excellent experience. - Great bike tours and lovely staff! I will come back for sure!

On Your Bike

The Vaults, Montague Cl, London SE1 9DA, UK – 020 7378 6669

Came in with a 3 day old but poorly prepared 1500 quid bike. Ben and Amy did a fantastic job in sorting it out and made it what it should have been when it left the manufacturer. Can't rate them highly enough. Professional, honest and trustworthy. Never used them before - will always use them from now on. Openlate until 7.30pm most evenings. Excellent. Use them.

My wife and I hired bicycles for a charity ride June 9-10. Given the terrorist attack at London Bridge, and the resultant area closure, we were unable to get our bikes from the Onyourbike shop as planned. However, even with their London Bridge shop closed, the staff worked to get us 2 bicycles and stage them at Evan's Cycle. They worked with returning inventory and provided a excellent customer experience under very difficult circumstances. The bicycles provided successfully, and unfailingly carried us to Amsterdam. My wife and I are extremely grateful and very happy the shop has now reopened.
