About Us

Whatever age or size, whether you cycle for leisure, commute or are a more competitive cyclist we can find the right bike for you.

Bristows is a well established family run cycle shop in Peterborough. The business first started in 1973 by David’s parents in a small corner shop on Lincoln Road. Then in 1983 we moved to Orton Waterville to open the current shop. As an independent business now run by David, colleague Sarah and David's wife, Sheena we know the value of good customer service and have a good knowledge of the products we sell as we are all cyclists ourselves.
Bristows is a one stop shop for everything cycling.

Located in a housing estate on the outskirts of Peterborough, so we have plenty of free parking outside and are close to the A1 and Ferry Meadows country park.

Ride it away


New year, new bike? We have some great offers on previous seasons bikes so take a look to see what we have to tempt you with. Remember, that in most cases, specs stay the same year on year with only colour changes so just think how much money you can save to then spend on kit to go with the bike!
We also have clearance offers on various accessories and clothing so why not pay us a visit to see what bargains are to be had.

Make yourself be seen on the road day or night, the following is taken from Trek Bikes' and Bontrager's recent survery with US Trek Dealers and the Clemson University...
"The single most effective solution to being seen on the road is with lights. If you only do one thing, choose daytime running lights. The next step is your riding kit. Fluorescent shoes, socks, trouser clips/bands, tyres. The final step is to add the right products for day and night. Fluorescent in the daylight. Reflective at night."
