ACT Shop of the Month | September | Saddle Safari Cycles

Buckinghamshire based Saddle Safari originally opened in1993 as a small cycle hire business with the focus on offering tourists and locals a simple and fun way of seeing this beautiful part of the world.

Saddle SafariThe business is now celebrating 25 years in business, having gradually evolved into a traditional bike shop. Since moving to a new location in 2012 Saddle Safari now boasts a purpose built cycle shop on Dean Street in Marlow - around the corner from the old premises but with three times the space.

The new shop benefits from a large professional workshop which is run by four Cytech qualified mechanics, a fantastic range of clothing and changing rooms and a bike fit area, alongside a wider range of bikes and accessories. The shop are also proud to be Ice Trike dealers, a fantastic product built in Falmouth Cornwall which are becoming increasingly popular both with the able bodied and the disabled.

Earlier this year Saddle Safari marked their 25 year anniversary with a series of charitable events, starting by collecting used bikes to send to Africa to be used by people who need transport and are unable to get around.
The shop also hosted a pop-up cinema with beer and ice cream, and a family fun day, with all proceeds going to the charity SportsAble, which provides sporting facilities for disabled people.
