– the REAL cycle people!

Our bicycle shop is located in the heart of Perth, near the Museum on George Street.

We are a family run cycle shop located in the heart of Perth city centre. On street parking is available at the front of the shop for easy access when dropping off any repairs or collecting a new bicycle.

44 George Street has been home to a cycle shop since 1906, when original owner John Sinclair set up his cycle sales and repair business.

The shop changed ownership in 1954 when a retiring John Sinclair sold the business to former RAF pilot John Richards. The business is still in the family with his son Drew Richards as the current proprietor.

Drew joined his father in the family business in 1983 and is now the sole proprietor. Drew spends his spare time racing classic motocross bikes and was Scottish 2008 over 50’s twinshock champion.
