Spokes Cycle Care & Repair

Whatever your requirements, you will always receive a warm welcome at the Spokes Workshop and we are always pleased to discuss all and any issues whether by phone or preferably face to face.


Spokes Servicing Options

We offer a range of services and servicing options to suit your bike, your cycling needs and your budget.

Which option is right for you?

Whether your bike needs a quick check over, a bit of TLC, a complete facelift or something in between, we offer our experience and a frank and honest assessment so that you can decide on the level of service that suits you and gives you the most benefit and enjoyment from your bike.
