Where are we

We love to meet our customers, and with this in mind we have a purpose built and designed tandem showroom. We re-located here some 6 years ago to the beautiful village of Gargrave, near Skipton in the Yorkshire Dales from our previous base in Ilkley. Our premises were chosen specifically for their location to some very lovely cycling right on the door step, and for new to tandem riding customers being based on a business park means there is the opportunity to do as many laps as you wish before venturing out onto the roads.

What to expect

We have all of our tandems on view in our large showroom, each model is available to test ride, and upon your arrival if we haven’t already pre-selected the models you wish to ride, we’ll chat you through the options and make a plan for your visit as to which tandems you are going to take out. Some of our customers like to just take one tandem out and be out for the whole day, others, especially seasoned tandemists might want to try several machines, often culminating with a longer ride on their favourite. We have changing facilities, so don’t feel you need to arrive in cycling kit, especially if like many of our customers you have driven straight to see us from many miles away. And of course we have pleasant bathroom facilities, which even include a shower. At the end of your visit, should you wish to make a purchase or go through a detailed specification to take away with you, we’ll sit down chat about what you have discovered during the day and then go through in detail the component choices available and we’ll price up your chosen machine there and then.

Do I need to make an appointment?

No, but we’d prefer you did make an appointment, we are only a small business and can only look after a small number of couples in the manner we would like to, on any one day, and of course Saturday is our busiest day. Most of our customers travel considerable distances, so don’t worry about being too precise on your arrival time, nearly everyone else booked in on the same day as you will be either early or late too. We have great cafe’s and a pub in the village and a super cafe stop – with lovely views just 4 miles away, so don’t fret about arriving hungry we can get you out on your 1st test ride promptly for you to enjoy refreshments close by. Appointments during week days aren’t always necessary, but they are appreciated, and if you have a fancy for test riding a particular model then do book to make sure it’s not already booked out, it’d be a shame to drive 2 or 3 hours to find another couple has gone out for the day on your dream machine.
