Based in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales village of Gargrave, we have created a dynamic and relaxing environment in which to purchase a new tandem or to see if tandem riding is for you. Surrounded by stunning countryside and good accommodation why not make your visit an overnight stay, see Opening Times for accommodation locally that has been recommended by our customers.
Fed up of cycling 50 yards behind your partner? Don't get left behind. Try one of our Discover Tandeming Days. Costing just £75 for the day, this is redeemable against the purchase of a new tandem.
We have tandems available to test ride from 10 different manufacturers. Our exclusive brand is Orbit - we purchased the Orbit tandem brand back in 2006, and we now have 19 models to choose from. They are available in a great range of frame sizes (including custom sizing) and include both 26" and 700c wheel options.
The aluminium frames are made in Taiwan by a top quality frame manufacturer. The custom steel frames are hand built in Yorkshire by Bob Jackson, who are well known as first class frame builders. All Orbit tandem frames carry a 10 year warranty.
Over the last couple of years we have have established ourselves as the leading retailer in the UK of electric assist tandems. In fact electric assist tandems are so popular they account nearly nearly a quarter of our sales. Come and try one you'll be impressed.
Every Orbit tandem is assembled with good quality components. The wheels are hand built using a DT spoke tension meter and this attention to detail and quality is reflected on the component selection on all the models. The Orbit tandems are all built to order, so should you wish to make any changes to the standard recommended models this can easily be accommodated when making the purchasing decision.
We are also very experienced in dealing with mail order sales for our tandems and components, so if a visit to the showroom isn't possible then contact us on 01756 748400 and we will talk you through the mail order buying process.
In 1990 we opened our first bike shop in Ilkley. Over a 20 year period we expanded the tandem side of the business to the point where the Ilkley shop was bursting at the seams.
In November 2010 we relocated the tandem business to Gargrave, the shop based at Asquith Industrial Estate is a tandem only outlet. The location is fantastic allowing our customers to test ride all our tandem fleet on back roads leading straight into some of the best Yorkshire Dales riding available.
