John was able to advise us on changing to a road bike from commuting bikes. His friendly help was invaluable and our daughter was able to try out a suitable bike on a quiet route around Yarmouth. Thank you very much.

Such a pleasure doing business with John. I have now bought one ex-hire road bike and one new bike from John. He is always very friendly and goes out of his way to help. Without question this is the best bike shop on the island.

We turned up without a reservation and there was no problem getting bikes. The bikes were excellent with really good suspension for the ride to The Needles. We arrived back just before 5pm but locked the bikes up as instructed. Recommended!
