The business is in a prime high street location, being one of the main thouroughfares in this busy and popular Hertfordshire Town and well positioned among other popular retailers with established clientele.

As well as bikes the business has a growing following with the local skateboarding and stunt scooter communities and is a real destination location for young and old enthusiasts to visit for boards, parts, accessories and repairs with its fully equipped workshop with approved Bosch ebike Dealer and Bosch Certified ebike Service Centre credentials.

Not surprisingly, the shop enjoys a good level of patronage – including circa 300+ active customers on company database; the store enjoys a high perecentage of repeat custom.
This opportunity is an ideal business for anyone looking to engage with the Cycling or Skateboarding sector or for someone already in the sector looking for a strongly performing, additional outlet to bolt on to their existing business activities.
