Covid 19 (Coronovirus) update

Last updated: 9am Mon 1/05/2020

Now open

  • Monday – Saturday 9.00am to 5.30pm, Sunday 11.00am to 4.00pm

We are pleased to announce that from Wednesday 20th May our Lake District store in Staveley will be re-opening to the public after two months of closure. Although bike shops were deemed an essential service by the government, we took the decision to close our three stores in an effort to help combat the spread of the Covid-19 Coronavirus pandemic.

WHEELBASE Mail Order – our mail order service will be running from Monday 30/3/20, and will operate until there is a significant change in the Governments restrictions. Please note we will be only able to ship in stock items and you can view our large range HERE.

We also will be answering emails at info@wheelbase.co.uk but we are running on reduced staff so please bear with us ??

For updates on the situation please view our Facebook page, News Blog or sign up to our Mailing List.

Thank you all for your continued support. Stay safe everyone, stay positive and look forward to better times.

Chris, Toby, James and the rest of the WHEELBASE team


Located in the picturesque village of Staveley, the UK’s largest cycle store is only 15 minutes’ drive from the M6 motorway and 10 minutes from Windermere. Based in Staveley Mill Yard, we’re a true destination store for your next visit to the Lake District. On our doorstep we have Wilf’s Caféwith a great selection of cakes and lunches, More? Bakery – for freshly baked goods and great coffee, and Hawkshead Brewery – for non-drivers craving a locally brewed pint. The Eagle and Child bed and breakfast Inn, run by an avid mountain biker, has rooms if you’re staying for the weekend and offers great pub grub and a selection of local ales.

With over 600 bikes on display in store, spread across our massive 16,000 sq. ft. premises, we have dedicated areas for Road, MTB, E-Bike, Women, Kids and everything in between. Our staff are all passionate cyclists, specialising in a variety of disciplines, united by a love of all things two wheels. We currently stock bikes from; Cannondale, Cervelo, Colnago, Cube, Focus, Frog Bikes, Genesis, Haibike, Intense, Kona, Mondraker, Trek, Wilier and Yeti.

Our precision fit team offer a professional bike fitting service in store, tailored to suit your riding.
