Finch & Son Cycles

43 Bell St, Reigate RH2 7AQ, UK – 01737 242163

We have bought all of our bikes here as the children have grown up. Just had a service and some lovely new front forks put on. Fabulous bike service for both my son and I, where they have gone far beyond 'the extra mile' . I would not go anywhere else.

Recently brought two hybrid bikes from this store. Initially unsure of what we wanted, Chris pointed us in the right direction and we ended up chosing two great bikes. We are very happy with our bikes and all the additional equipment we purchased. The team at Finch Cycles pulled out all the stops to get us what we asked for. They were very helpful and had great communication throughout the ordering process. Would highly recommend to all, we will continue to use Finch Cycles for all our cycling needs.

C & N Cycles

32 Station Rd, Redhill RH1 1PD, UK – 01737 760857

Stopped in during the middle of a London to brighton cycle as my chain kept slipping off. They sorted me out for a few quid as well as giving it a quick service for free. On my way in half an hour! Really friendly people, couldn't recommend enough! (thanks so much guys, made it to Brighton with no issues!)

I rented a road bike for a day from C & N. it was bittersweet. On the upside there is a lot of terrific riding to be done in Surrey and I got to do some. Also, on the upside the staff did go the extra mile (literally) to fix the problems with the bike they gave me. But there were problems with the bike. Preventable ones. When the newly inflated front tire blew before the bike even left the store, that should have been a sign. But staff quickly (without checking the tire) replaced the tube and sent me on my way. The front tire blew again about 15km later. There were two easily noticeable tears in the sidewall. The staff got in their car and drove out to me with a new wheel as fast as they could. But I reckon I was standing around for about 40 minutes. He swapped out the wheel and drove off. I hopped on and noticed immediately that the rear wheel had lost most of its pressure. Fortunately the staff person noticed me, pulled over and we swapped the rear tube. And he gave me another. That was good for another 70 or so km. But I had 30 more to go and the sun was setting when the rear tire started going flat again. Since swapping the tube hadn’t worked, I pumped the tire back up. Thank goodness the pump they supplied was a good one. So I did that three or for times in the last 25km of my ride. When I got back the staff were friendly and efficient but pretty zen about what had happened. No apologies. They expressed surprise “we didn’t have any flats all last year”. But my feeling is they should not have sent me out on two worn out tires and that I should not have trusted them to verify the integrity of the tires.

Maison Du Velo (Reigate)

31 Lesbourne Rd, Reigate RH2 7JS, UK – 01737 241188

I love this place, I use the Launderette round the corner and have breakfast every Sunday, always the smoked salmon and cream cheese. Love it. But please can you stop changing it!!! Every week it's different. Best version is two halves of toasted bagel, served open toasted and topper with Cream Cheese, SS and Black Pepper with a wedge of lemon and dressed leaves. Stop changing it!!!!

These guys could not be more helpful in there knowledge and advice. I recently was going to buy some new wheels and both Tim and Tom could not have been more helpful, I will defiantly be going back again!

Halfords - Redhill Store

2, Brighton Rd, Redhill RH1 6QL, UK – 01737 780680

One star: Went to Halfords to have my Air Con "Checked" as 2 weeks ago I went to ATS to have it regassed but now aircon was not cooling any more. The lady checked and said my pressure was low and I explained that I had it rcharged just 2 weeks ago. He lady then proceeded to recharge the aircon. I was thinking oh it is part of the checking? She said that the car was holding pressure so if there was a leak then it must be small. The can she used ran out so she went to get a new can. She then continued to recharge but saw the needle to fluctuate between green and alert. She said not normal and car compressor sounded as if it was struggling so she stopped recharging. She said I should get it looked at but aircon is cooler compared to when I took the car in. Then we went inside and that was when I found out I was being charged for the recharging, £40! Cannot believe it. The aircon was not that cold and less than a week later it was back to when I took it to Halfords!! So becareful for those that just want it "Checked" and stop them if they proceed to recharge!! Was not happy and felt I was being cheated! I ended up purchasing my own recharge kit online and followed the directions. I saw no fluctuations, which I saw on YouTube that it was due to air compressor Aircon system equilibrating. Recharged it, took a lot longer than what the lady at Halfords did and now I have a super cold A.C.! Updating rating to 3 stars: I filled out an online feedback as stated on the receipt and just got a call from Halfords saying that they will be happy to refund the charge.

A good service location, quite reliable but do sometimes leave bike building untill last minute.
