About Us


We are a small, friendly independent bike shop, in Orton Waterville in Peterborough that has been serving the cyclists of Peterborough since 1973.
Whatever type of cyclist you are, we have a bike for you. From the little ones' first bike up to electrically assisted bikes - we have something for everyone. Find your perfect bike at Bristows!



We don't offer "ecommerce" for bikes - nobody should buy a bike without talking to someone first. We're happy to talk over the phone, email or other social media, but prefer to talk to you face to face, so we can check your sizing (no two bikes measure the same!) and make sure the bike you are looking for does what you need it to do and fits you as it should.


All our bikes are fully assembled and given a full pre-delivery inspection prior to leaving the shop and we include a free post ride inspection after 6-8 weeks (booking required).
We keep a good range of bikes and accessories in stock, but have access to so much more for next day delivery.

Our workshop is always in demand so as a consequence we are usually booked up well in advance so we highly recommend you ring to check availability before turning up with your bike.











Ride it away

Many of you will remember our former mechanic and colleague, William (Bill) who worked with us for many years until his retirement in April 2016.
Sadly Bill passed away on Friday 10 August after a battle with cancer.

His two boys Stephen and Jeremy and his partner Julia have asked that we let customers know as he knew so many of you over the years.
The family have said that they would like to raise money for Sue Ryder and a collection will be started in the shop should anyone wish to donate in Bill’s memory.

His funeral will be held at the Crematorium in Marholm at 12.30pm on Thursday 31 August, the Wake will be at the Woodman in Thorpe Wood, PE3 6SQ.




Well, summer put in an appearance for a few weeks, but seems to have changed its mind! Despite the down turn in the weather we are still as busy as ever, so please ring before bringing your bike in for repair as we don't have a lot of storage room for bikes.
