  •   A group of us decided to hire e-bikes for the day, and had a great time. If you never used an electric bike before, it's a great way for a mixed ability group to go out for a day's biking and keep together. The electric...More

  •   Rented a hybrid in Chipping Norton for four days. Tom’s service before, during and after the rental was great. The bike was like new. Local knowledge was fantastic. I couldn’t have imagined a better experience. I will return.

      We were pleased to find that TY Cycles offered nice road bikes for rent, unlike many other shops in the area. Don't worry, they have hybrid bikes and even electric bikes if that is your thing. Our Trek Emonda bikes with Shimano 105 drivetrains performed...More

TY CYCLES . . . RUN BY CYCLISTS  . . . FOR CYCLISTS  –  SOME TESTIMONIALS

“Having never ridden a road bike and signing up for an Ironman I was in need of considerable help! I found out about TY cycles via the internet and got in contact with Tom. Tom helped me find a bike and was always available to fix any problems I had. His service of collecting my bike from my house made life a lot easier. Not only this, but he always provided an impeccable and polite service, taking care of every little detail. Having no prior knowledge about bikes he was always patient and informative when describing what he was doing, making it easy for me to understand. He also made sure my bike made it to France in perfect condition. Without Tom’s help over the past few months I wouldn’t have even made it to the start line! I will be moving away in a few months, but when there is an issue, or my bike is in need of a service I will always return to TY cycles as Tom runs an outstanding business.”
Joe Siman

 

“The service I have received from TY Cycles is second to none.  Tom has not only repaired my bike but returned it to me in sparkling condition – it is good as new!  I am a Londoner but will be travelling out to the Cotswolds for all future bike repairs as I cannot find the same level of service or value anywhere in London.  Thank you Tom!”
Rosie Pennington

 

“I wanted a specialist purchase and custom build for my next road bike in time for Ride London 100. Tom of TY Cycles was really knowledgable and very patient in helping me find the best spec online and then did a really efficient build and carried out an expert safety check on all the new components. The bike set up and ride quality is sublime! I won’t take my servicing and repairs anywhere else but TY Cycles – Tom and his brother Rob are thoroughly professional in every way.”
Martin, London

 

”TY Cycles surpass themselves again. Top drawer service building my new Trek Procaliber 9.9 cross country mountain bike”.
