Welcome to Velo Bikes, the online presence for two of the Lake Districts established and respected independent bike shops - Gill Cycles and Grizedale Mountain Bikes.
Whilst Velo Bikes online is a new venture for us, be assured that collectively, we have over 35 years of experience selling, servicing & repairing all types of bikes and we look forward to meeting you either in store or online!
Velo Ulverston, formerly Gill Cycles in Ulverston has a wide selection of bikes, clothing, footwear and accessories for mountain bikers and discerning road cyclists. It's worth mentioning that Velo Ulverston also has a choice of products for ladies and children. Grizedale Mountain Bikes, based in The Lake District, near Hawkshead, is primarily a bike hire centre for those wishing to enjoy Grizedale Forest by bike.
Both shops stock a wide range of products for all cycling abilities including accessories from Raceface, Hope, Shimano and Madison. We have bikes of all types from Saracen, Scott, Mondraker, Yeti, Cube, Specialized, and Merida. We have carefully selected clothing and footwear ranges for men and women from brands including Fox, Madison, Five Ten, Lazer and our extensive children’s section has parents coming back year after year to renew their young rider’s kit.
The Grizedale shop hosts our Hire Bike Centre has the most extensive fleet of hire bicycles in the Lake District. We have a choice of full suspension and hardtail mountain bikes for those heading onto the exhilarating North Face Trail or the network of many bridleways that criss-cross the forest. We have hardtail mountain bikes for the forest road trails as well as children’s bikes, tag-a-longs and trailers to enable the whole family to enjoy the trails. For those wanting to try something new or different we also have a selection of electric bikes, fat bikes and the very latest 'plus' bikes to hire.
Both stores have well equipped, full service workshops with capable mechanics to keep your bike in top condition, whether you hit the bumps and jumps, need advice on setting up your machine for that next TT, sportive or enduro - we're here to help. We are available for pre-booked servicing work, custom builds and ‘can you just’s’!
You can call us daily from 9am to 5pm on:
We look forward to meeting you in one of shops or on the trails of Grizedale Forest and the southern Lake District.
