Whether you're looking for a full suspension or hard tail mountain bike, commute busting road bikes or e-bikes, or even your first ever bicycle, we are keen to get the right choice for you and your budget. We will always be here to support you throughout your biking life and want you to feel welcome to visit at any time to talk through your options.
As well as a great collection of bikes, we also have a vast range of clothing, parts and accessories. Our workshop is fully equipped with the professional tools to carry out servicing and repairs to the highest standard.
Banchory Cycles was founded in 2009 by Pete Kneeshaw who was an extremely keen road cyclist with a wealth of biking knowledge. He passed his wisdom on to his young mechanic, Sam who had worked in the shop since 2015. Pete retired in the spring of 2020 and Sam was adamant to keep a bike shop that served the Banchory community.
Together with his fathers support, and amidst a world pandemic, Sam acquired the business on the 1st of June 2020 and is keen to expand the already loyal customer base. He wants the shop to support cyclists of all ages and experiences and is developing strong relationships with the top e-bike suppliers to bring the latest technology to Banchory and beyond!
Sam is a Velotech qualified mechanic and has been a serious biker since the age of 12. By the age of 14, Sam was participating in the Scottish Downhill Races throughout the country. Sam still enjoys enduro riding when time allows and can often be found around the tracks of Scolty Woodland.
