Vote for Wheelbase in the BikeBiz Top 20 Independent Bike Dealer Awards

We work hard here at WHEELBASE, the UK’s largest cycle store. We have worked hard over the last 20 years to bring you one of the UK’s premier cycling stores.

Here at our Lake District store we have it all, whether you're into road cycling, mountain biking, touring, commuting, family riding or eBikes. We pride ourselves on being an inclusive and friendly store for everyone who loves cycling.

As a team of passionate cyclists, we stock only the very best brands, products that we believe in and use ourselves. We have a wide range of cycling experience and knowledge within our sales and mail order teams, plus 6 professional mechanics and 3 bike fitters.

Our passion for the sport is invested through the sponsorship of a 12-man British Elite road race team WHEELBASE ALTURA MGD and a 6-man junior development team WHEELBASE CabTech juniors. We hold our annual MTB Demo weekend in March, host the Sam Houghton MTB Challenge in June and run road sportives in March and July every year. We also organise a round of the North West CycloCross league which attracts 500 riders and are avid supporters of Kendal Cycling Club and Fix the Fells.

2016 saw us expand and take our expertise to the North East with our first satellite store in Darlington, County Durham.

We would like to be named the Number 1 Independent Bike Dealer by BikeBiz, the trade journal for the cycle industry. We have been nominated in the Top 20 every year for as long as we can remember but this year we want go for the win!

Please give us your vote, and tell the panel what to like about WHEELBASE and why we are deserving of the accolade!
