Welcome to the Black Bikes Website


I am currently away offshore  until the 5th of October. I'm sorry for the inconvenience I know this will cause and thank you for understanding. Looking forward to seeing you when I return.

I'm sad to announce that the shop will be closing down on the 16th of October

It has become increasingly difficult for me to balance working offshore for two weeks, running the shop and being a family man. As I hope you all can understand it is unsustainable only taking one or if I'm lucky two days off a month and it is not fair for my family to not give them the attention they deserve, especially with another baby on the way. I am aware this will put all my customers in a difficult situation with no bike shop in the immediate area and I am deeply sorry to do that to you all. It has been a pleasure to own the shop and get to know you all.


I will continue to take bookings while I'm home next time and all on going projects will be completed but I will be shut for bookings after the 14th of October.

If you wish to book in for when I return please email - james@black-bikes.co.uk



Rides from the shop

I am going to start doing a mountain bike ride from the shop on a Thursday evening after closing at 1730. It will be a short loop of the surrounding wood and will be around 1 1/2 hours with a pub stop at the end. If anyone is interested email me on james@black-bikes.co.uk so I have an idea of numbers. Looking forward to seeing you for a shreddy!

Have you booked your repair in?


Our workshop is currently running service and repair by appointment. Please call the shop on 01263 822255 or email james@black-bikes.co.uk to check availability and book a slot. 




For all other small jobs just pop in during opening hours and we will try our best to help.
