Wesley staff who cycle, use and recommend Edinburgh Cycles
on Oxford Road as a really good local bike shop, and it has some fantastic bikes. But with our cycle project we signpost customers there as it is a cooperative and shares a lot of our environmental values - and, indeed, provides us with some second-hand bikes & parts; we can rescue, recycle & reuse/put together bikes so that they are road legal, working, safe etc., but recommend Edinburgh for good, cheap servicing and great customer care & advice for the longer-term.
