Fred Baker Cycles

Bristol, United Kingdom

As the longest running independent bike shop in Bristol, known as the UK's contemporary hub for cyclists and bike shops, Fred Baker Cycles first established by Fred Baker. As one of two independent bike shops at the time, Fred Baker Cycles has been a pioneer in the industry ever since. Now run as a family business by Steve Farrell, a former IT specialist, and his son, a mechanic, both have coined their passion for bikes to deliver the best possible customer service for cyclists. Fred Baker Cycles have channelled a focus on providing efficient turn around times for repairs and service, as well as creating a memorable experience for their customers.
