I’ve been lucky enough this week to get out for a ride out on my own bike, and while servicing and fixing your bikes is important to us, it’s nice to get out into the air sometimes to recharge our batteries. It’s great to see our customers taking the opportunity to enjoy this early spring weather and do the same.
Since we started the Steel Town adventure two and a half years ago, our goal was to find a way to share our passion for cycling and pass on our years of experience.
Cycling is one of those activities that has a wide range of participants – those with a love of the sport, the machine, and the various disciplines; those who just enjoy the level of fitness that cycling has to offer, and then there’s the next generation of cyclists, kids, encouraged by their their families and peers alike. We believe that cycling feels the same for all those involved, and at its heart, it’s a simple and very rewarding activity.
At Steel Town Cycles we hope to become a trusted service to our customers and the wider cycling community. We’d like to encourage you all to take time to appreciate what we have around us in the areas we live.
We really hope you’ll get on your bikes this spring and enjoy some journeys of your own. It’s often not necessary to venture far, especially in County Durham, before you’re away from the main roads and noise. Perfect for getting out with the kids in school holidays and other times. We have a network of disused railway lines and traffic free lanes. For those wanting more of a challenge and altitude we have that too, nestled in between the north Pennines , Weardale and Northumberland; there’s also our local moorland at Blanchland and Stanhope. To me, Stanhope and Bolihope Common have some of the most beautiful scenery in our country. What’s more they’re right on our doorstep and there are plenty of routes in our wonderful county to challenge all abilities.
That’s the fantastic thing about cycling. You don’t have to be a professional or even a race participating amateur to enjoy its straightforward joy.
Steel Town Cycles Repair and Service all types of bicycles but the one thing that joins us all is the love of that simple, perfect, machine.
