ACT Shop of the Month | January | The Bike Shed (Wales)

The Bike Shed is Cardiff's friendly bike shop offering sales of new bikes, parts & accessories as well as repairs & servicing by qualified Cytech mechanics.

Bike Shed Wales supplies some of the world's finest bikes from some of the biggest brands, including Trek, Ridgeback, Bianchi, Genesis, Ridley and Pashley.

Bikes can be purchased on cycle to work schemes or via Ride it away cycle finance.

With an already well-established store in Pontcanna, The Bike Shed has recently opened a new branch at Tongwynlais near Cardiff, which incorporates a £100,000 showroom dedicated to women's cycling.

It is one of the biggest showrooms of its kind in Wales in terms of the range of road bikes and equipment on display. According to John Higgins, Director of The Bike Shed, "the aim of the showroom is to ensure women get the right bike for their needs, and the confidence to get full enjoyment from it.

"This will be backed up by regular evening bike maintenance classes, and support for a series of rides for women, organised with Sport Cardiff."
