Established in the late eighties, when Mountain Biking was a fledgling sport, Andy Stephenson set up the business hiring out mountain bikes and fixing bikes from the back of his van out and about in the Lake District. Deciding this was possibly going somewhere, Andy opened 'Biketreks' at Millans Park in Ambleside.

Over the last twenty years, the shop has grown and become more and more established, now regarded as one of the leading Bike shops in the north of England, if not the whole country. In addition to the Millans Road shop, the bike hire and service centre was opened on Compton Road, just around the corner.

More recently the shop itself has moved into new premises on Rydal Road, again just around the corner, to a more prominent position in Ambleside's town centre. Producing one of Cumbria's most modern purpose built bike displays and more than doubling stock capacity, Biketreks are now able to supply a larger range for all ages and disciplines.

Biketreks have a strong hard working team of helpful friendly staff to help you out with any cycling sale or query.
