ACT Shop of the Month

Posted on in Cycles News

ACT Shop of the Month | March | Velocity Bikes

Velocity Bikes began in September 2001, as a family run business. Its modest beginning was from a small property in London Road, North End, Portsmouth. It was Tina that suggested making a go of it on their own, as Mike had been in the trade for more than 20 years, having gained invaluable technical and business experience as a workshop manager and shop manager.

Tina and Mike have watched Velocity Bikes grow and grow and are very pleased as to how the business is progressing. They moved to a bigger property which was two doors along from the original shop in London Road, again five years later moved to a purpose built cycle shop in Cosham where the business is run now. Velocity Bikes main brands are as follows: Dawes, Ridgeback, Genesis, Merida, Trek, Orbea, Saracen, Sabbath, Colnago and Mercian.

This shop has over four times the floor area of the old shop in North End, so as to accommodate a spacious retail area, as well as a newly equipped workshop with up to four workstations. There is specific clothing, Bike Fitting and seminar space. A comfy lounge area, with coffee on tap, will complement a welcoming atmosphere for all cycling enthusiasts.

Velocity Bikes offer their customers the ability to spread bike payments with a 0% finance plan via Ride it away retail finance. Offering a total of 5 plans for customers to choose from, depending upon the total amount borrowed, means every customer can find the deal that's right for them.

They are also a Female Friendly Bike shop , servicing the needs of their female customers with friendly help and advice as well as female specific products.
