Welcome to Off the Rock Cycles
Bike Shop and Rider Training

A personalised service by a friendly, knowledgeable team since 2009

Off the Rock Cycles is a rider-owned and rider-run business. We are a team of experienced mechanics and assistants, and ride a variety of bikes ourselves, from leisure and commuting to trials and downhill.

Our priority is to give our customers the best assistance possible by understanding their needs. Because we love what we do, we pride ourselves in a knowledgeable and friendly customer service.

Over 300 bikes in stock

Oh, it’s like the Tardis…!

We hear that a lot! Off the Rock Cycles looks small from the front, but we have 2 large showrooms at the back, as well as a front shop for accessories.

Why buy a bike from us?

When you buy a bike from Off the Rock Cycles you can expect a high standard of service. You will get:

– a bike that is perfectly built and tuned
– free bike fit including suspension adjustment according to your weight and intended use
– advice on aftersale parts and free fitting of most common after sale parts
– free 3-months servicing plan
– free registration of your bike on BikeRegister with BikeRegister Membership Plus

You can browse our bike catalogue here.

We stock a variety of brands, including high quality brands Merida, Marin, Forme, Dawes, Squish, and Cuda. We have chosen brands who represent good value for money rather than a large spend on marketing.

You are welcome to visit and browse. We can show you round the different types and models of bikes.

We don’t just sell bikes. We can advise you, size the bike up, and set it up for your build. All bikes leave the shop perfectly tuned, and each bike comes with 3 months of free servicing.

eBikes and e-conversions

Off the Rock Cycles supply Merida and Ezego ebikes, ranging from top-level full-suspension to folding shopper – we have bikes for varying abilities, riding styles and budgets.

You can browse our performance ebikes here and leisure ebikes here.

Should you not find the ebike of your dream in our ready-built range, our in-house specialist ebike company Futurebike builds and converts custom EAPC electric bikes.

Cycle Scheme Voucher and pay-it-off club

We welcome Cycle Schemes Vouchers from all major schemes.  Our favourite is the Green Commute Initiative (a social enterprise), no limit on amount, efficient and friendly.

Cycle to work schemes

Pay-it-off club

Reserve a bike at any other time of the year, with a 20% deposit and pay it off in as many instalments as you choose, over 3 months. No interest. Then the bike is yours!


Specialist repairs and servicing workshop

Our professional workshop, Rock Repairs and Servicing Ltd, is situated in the bike shop in Seaview Road. Our staff mechanics are industry-qualified and have a minimum of 12 years experience each. We also carry out minor adjustment and fix punctures while you wait, time allowing. 

Rock Repairs and Servicing carry out mechanical servicing and repairs on all push cycles and on most EAPC* ebikes. We can do some electrical repairs too, and carry out diagnostics, but only on selected bikes.

When you bring a bike in, we can advise you on the level of servicing and on the parts required before carrying out the work.
