Velo Ulverston 

Situated on Lightburn Industrial estate in Ulverston, Velo Ulverston is in the perfect place to pop in and see what we have in store this week, with a shop, workshop and parking outside there is no excuse not to head over!  Our friendly, knowledgeable and approachable staff are always ready to help.

Velo Ulverston was formally known as Gill cycles and has a long history in the town.  Originally based in "The Gill" in Ulverston, and recently being based on Lightburn industrial estate, Gill has also expanded through the years.  In 2014 Grizedale Mountain Bikes acquired Gill cycles, and brought two well known independent cycle shops together.  The name Velo Ulverston was introduced in the Summer of 2015, with the website soon to follow.  


At Velo Ulverston we stock a wide range of bikes from Scott, Cube, Trek, Saracen, Specialized, Frog, Mondraker, Yeti and many more.  There are bikes for all riding disciplines, and we work with many of the BIKE TO WORK SCHEME's (phone us for more information).  With clothing for all the family from Fox and Madison, accessories from Raceface, Hope, Rockshox and many more.  We stock road, Bmx and mountain bike accessories.


The workshop has mechanics on hand everyday, ready to help you with a quick fix, a long job, or full service.  The workshop is often very busy, so it is best to give us a call and book your bike in before you bring it.  We are happy to do anything from fix a puncture up to a full bike service, custom build or any thing else you feel your bike is in need of,  as well as give advice, discuss local trails and answer any questions you might have.

Pop in for a laugh, a gossip and plenty of biking knowledge from the local biking guru Lee.  

Lee and the team are ready to welcome you to Velo Ulverston.


Welcome to the newest part of Velo.  Our online retail store and hire bike booking service.  

"Going Live" in July 2015, this is a bold step into pastures new for the previously non "internet experienced" team!  But don't panic!  Luckily we have Joe and Stuart to help us and you on your way to a fantastic online retail experience you can even "click and collect"!  Have a look around the site, tell us what you think and hopefully we will be able to tempt you with our online store or maybe even get you to book a bike and we will see you either at Grizedale or in Ulverston.
