dedicated to providing the best experience for you

Behind The Bikeshed is a rare thing in the current retail environment, a true Family owned and run business. We all ride our bikes whenever we can and are hugely passionate about passing on our knowledge and enthusiasm to help our customers get the most from their bikes.

We are dedicated to providing the highest standards of customer service, which we do from one of Andover's finest buildings. For those that prefer to shop on-line we have a state of the art website with 'Click & Collect' available for those that want the best of both worlds. All of this is done in partnership with the biggest and best brands in the business to enable us to give a great customer experience. So whatever you want from cycling, Behind The Bikeshed should be your first and only choice.

What sets Behind the Bikeshed apart?

Behind The Bikeshed is more than just a shop, it's the centre of a cycling community. As well as selling bikes and equipment, we also have a thriving workshop with Cytech qualified staff, we promote races in conjunction with British Cycling and we organise rides for our community.

We also have something quite unique in the bike trade, with two women amongst our five staff. To support this we have a dedicated area within the store for Women specific bikes and equipment, showcasing products from Specialized and Liv.

We also have two staff qualified to carry out Specialized Body Geometry bike fitting in our dedicated studio, including one of only a few women in the UK able to undertake this work. Why do we mention both male and female bike fitters? It's simple, both genders have specific requirements when it comes to riding, so it is important that we have staff that also understand a Woman's perspective of cycling and can provide a comfortable environment for Women riders to get the benefit of a professional bike fit.
