Riley's sells and maintains bikes including electric bikes and parts and accessories. In our workshop we repair and service bikes and supply and fit parts and accessories. We can also offer a makeover service to pimp your ride. We have accounts with key distributors to give a wide choice of bikes and parts including Merida, Raleigh, DiamondBack, Wisper, Dahon, Charge, Mongoose, GT, Shimano, Sram, Schwalbe, We the People, Salt, Brick Lane Bikes and Oxford cycle products.

We also offer used bikes and in 2014 will be introducing bicycle hire, a service to supply bikes on the cycle to work scheme, finance on electric bikes and vintage bikes for props and special events. Riley's is a traditional bike shop and there has been a bicycle business here under the previous owner serving cyclists for 45 years. It has an interesting character being set in a pleasant yard and historic buildings. The workshop has extensive tools for servicing and repairing vintage and modern bikes. There is a cafe adjacent and bikes can be parked safely while visiting the Town.

Mike Riley is the current custodian of this local institution; as well as being a Velotech qualified cycle mechanic, Mike is also a time served engineer with a Dockyard apprenticeship, qualifications in electrical engineering and quality control, health, safety and environment systems. Mike started riding as a young lad and had to learn to maintain his own bikes as it was his passport to freedom, from necessity grew a joy of cycling and bikes which he wants to share with his customers.
