Pedal Cycles

An independent bike shop, workshop and – as of very recently – a bike cafe! We’re a two floor store with stocking great brands such as Scott, Whyte, Kona, Brompton, GoCycle and MiRider. Our workshop is open plan and our mechanics have decades of experience between them. The bike cafe is a relatively new addition and has been operating since mid-August, serving up speciality coffee, loose leaf tea, cakes, breakfast and lunch to bike riders and locals. We’re really excited to be running an evening with Poole Wheelers and look forward to meeting you!

* We have a number of indoor bike trainers available for purchase, including some brands that can be tested during the evening.
* There is free parking to the rear of the shop including an outdoor seating area
