About Us

Whatever age, 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


Summer is nearly here! With the better weather (hopefully) and the longer days we can all enjoy more time in the saddle. When the weather gets better we all think of getting out and about on our bikes, and bike shops start to get busy and we are no exception.
Our workshop is already very busy - so if you have a bike that is in need of some TLC then please ring us to book your bike in. We don't have room to keep bikes until we can service them so pre-booking is essential. If you have a big ride planned book ahead, allow at least one-two weeks in between so you have time to ride the bike after it has been serviced to make sure it runs smoothly for your big ride.

We have some new bikes in-store, our Ridley road bikes are steadily coming into stock and we have sold several from the Saracen range too. Accessories for your bike that are new to us, are the Quad Lock secure mounting system for phones, we have kits in stock for the iPhone 6 and 7. Another new brand to us is the Lazer range of helmets.
Check out our page on facebook to see what's been going on in-store.
