Bicycle Shops or Bicycle Accessories Outlets or Cycle Repairers

On Your Bike

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

The difference between good service and great service is the response to remedying a problem with a purchase. Top marks fixing the issue I had with a new bike I bought from them quickly, efficiently and without fuss.

Excellent bike rental. Efficient service and the bike was well set up - it ran very smoothly. I would certainly recommend them.

The London Bicycle Repair Shop

Benson House, 2-3 Hatfields, Lambeth, London SE1 8DQ, UK – 020 7928 6898

I've used this repair shop a few times, both with a modern and an old classic bike. The staff are so knowledgeable, they typically identify the issue within seconds and fix either immediately or same day when they can. Very polite and friendly. They'll also ask first, before carrying out pricey repairs, which I think should be a standard anyway, though so many other places do not do this. I definitely recommend this shop.

Great bike shop! Knowledgeable and friendly staff. Fitted me two new wheels and did a stellar job. They also turned it around the same day. Highly recommended.

Cycle Surgery

3 Procter St, London WC1V 6DW, UK – 020 7269 7070

I don't normally leave reviews - in fact this may be my first ever - but I was so impressed by the quality and service provided by Phil that I felt obliged to write this! I came in with a few problems with my bike, and Phil went completely out of his way to assist me. Not only was he extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of cycling and training, but he was also a really nice bloke. I cannot recommend this place - and Phil - enough!

John helped me and he provided the best customer service I have had in ages. He patiently helped me with my bike lock, re-fitting it and making sure it was ok for me adjusting it several times so I had it just how I wanted it. He was also in a really good happy mood and just so nice to all the customers I saw him interact with. thanks again!

Cycle Hire

London Bicycle Tour Company

74 Kennington Rd, Kennington, London SE11 6NL, UK – 020 7928 6838

I did the Love London tour and really enjoyed it! Ollie was our tour guide and he was knowledgeable and entertaining. I am a cyclist in the states but have never cycled in such a busy city - you will go through some heavy traffic areas and busy pedestrian areas so I wouldn’t recommend this tour for young kids. Overall it was fantastic and I got to see many great sights in a London!

Ollie was an awesome tour guide. The tour was one of our favorite things in London. You see a lot in three hours and get some lite exercise. Ollie also has a good sense of humor
