Went to see Victoria 2 months before the London marathon for some nutrition tips too hopefully push me to the next level. She pointed out a few key things that were missing from my diet completely + added a few things that would improve my performance. Also give me advice on pre and during race nutrition/hydration. These things went along way to my massive PB in London (2.38) and I would highly recommend as this advice stay with you forever! More...
Well presented evening highly recommend look forward to next Workshop Victoria’s style of presentation was Fantastic information kept everyone interested throughout talk Many Thanks Mark Thomas (Head Coach Rhondda Triathlon Club)
What a sensible insight to sports nutrition offered by this professional lady. Diolch
So thorough and thoughtful. Excellent follow ups too when she happens across a new recipe etc that she thinks will suit you. Thoroughly recommended.
Cannot thank Victoria enough for her advice about nutrition for me to be able to run an ultra marathon. Learnt loads about the importance of carbohydrate intake and essential proteins. Nothing was too much trouble regular messages and support asking how I was getting on. No fad diets. All real food. Advice which I will carry on following. At times we think we are tired from overtraining but maybe we need to look at our diet. Victoria worked out my macronutrients and I was way off. Beautiful lady inside and out. #investinyourself More...
Just purchased my mountain bike from these guys -very knowledgeable and helpful with fantastic expertise and this bike shop is second to none with a bonus of serving great coffee
I had a bike fit recently and have found all the staff extremely knowledgeable taking time to explain all the process. I took the bike out for a brief ride if it required any alteration it would be addressed. The coffee shop staff have fantastic home made food and serve everything with a smile. At County Cycles you are always made to feel like a member of their extended family. Highly recommended. More...
Very helpful when fitting my bike. I'll be going back again to buy more equipment. Great staff too.
What a find this shop is. I needed a new bike and spotted this place whilst shopping nearby , there was no hard sell , they made sure that the size was correct for me , I took my time making up my mind by having a wonderful lunch and coffee in the cafe , I came out very proud of my new bike after a brilliant shopping experience wow
I was struggling to find a comfortable seat for my bike, popped into county cycles and was bowled over by the patience and helpfulness of the staff who took time to find a suitable seat for me and even loaned me a bike seat to take home and trial. Fab cafe too.
I’ve recently got into cycling and didn’t have much confidence in my ability. We went to county cycles, and although I didn’t buy my bike from them, their service has been outstanding. My saddle isn’t quite right, and the care and interest in getting it right for me, has been second to none.
It’s not about getting the sale for them, it’s the service. I always get a welcome, the coffee is great and the food is amazing. Proper home cooked food. So, if you are looking for a bike, advice.. or just a coffee and cake, go and find this gem of a place, you won’t be disappointed! More...

I've used County Cycles since 2009 when, post right leg amputation I was trying to ride a bike. The help and support I received was incredible and Peter, the owner, went the extra mile to ensure my bike was properly set up. Since then my wife and I have bought 4 top end bikes between us from the shop and also have our bikes regularly serviced. I know all the staff well and they ALWAYS listen to the way I describe any issues I have with my gears, bottom brackets etc. They don't always get it right first time but that's because issues sometimes only manifest themselves during long rides and/or when the bike is under stress. Fantastic bike shop in all regards plus the best coffee around. More...
