About York Cycleworks
A traditional bike shop for today's cyclist, established in 1980, we are a large, friendly, independent bike shop located just outside of York’s city walls. At York Cycleworks we stock some of the biggest and best known cycling brands in the world. We pride ourselves on our exceptional level of expertise and knowledge across all aspects of cycling. We know that buying a bike can be a daunting experience, no matter if it's your first or your hundredth bike with so many different options and technical jargon. That's why we'll stick the kettle on so we can talk you through the options, explain what everything means and make sure that you leave with the right bike for your needs.
At Cycleworks we stock a large range of road, mountain and commuter bikes as well as a wide range of accessories and parts for whatever sort of riding you enjoy.
We have one of the best equipped and most experienced full-time workshops around which is manned by three fully qualified CYTECH mechanics who will service and repair your bike. They also offer expert advice on custom built bikes and hand built wheels that can be tailored to your exact specifications.
York Cycleworks are proud to be able to offer Performance Coaching and Testing here in the shop. Our coach, Rob Stanley can build a bespoke training plan tailored to your goals and ambitions and deliver it to you week on week. Services vary from entry-level testing up to elite-athlete coaching.
A bike fit greatly improves your efficiency on the bike, will decrease your risk of injury and will help you get the most out of your cycling. Using state-of-the-art Trek Precision Fit technology, one of our four bike fit technicians will help you get the correct position on the bike to achieve this. We can fit you to a bike bought from us or elsewhere.
Here at Cycleworks we LOVE a good event! We hold regular talks and workshops in the shop as well as weekend social rides, leaving the shop on Saturday mornings at 9.30 as well as road, cyclo-cross and criterium races.
