[03/14/21]   The sale of the shop in Canon Street is progressing rapidly, I've had a bit of a shock this week as the buyers are all ready to complete the purchase 😯
We've been asked if we can exchange on Friday 19th so it's been a bit of a rush to complete all repairs ASAP and also clear out the shop, due to this our last trading day will be Wednesday 17th March.
Once the sale has been completed, I will be taking a bit of a break, it's been a long long year with the covid situation. We've been open while everyone else has been forced to close and it's been quite a challenging time.
From the 16th of April I shall be taking on service and repairs once again, please contact me through this page if you require any work carried out on your bike.
Thanks again 🙏

[02/16/21]   Well it's all change at Dare Valley Cycles. Incredibly after 21 years of trading, we will no longer have a retail presence on Canon Street Aberdare, the shop has been for sale for some time and has now sold.
We will be selling various parts and accessories in our ebay shop (cyclestuff 2000) and Cycle servicing will still be undertaken but on a smaller scale, with the offer of a collect and repair service, bookings can be made by contacting us on our page.
We would like to thank all customers old and new for your valued support over the last 21 years, it is unbelievable that those children whose parents purchased their first bike from us are now bringing their own children in for their first bike.
This last year has been incredibly challenging, shortages of bicycles and parts have taken their toll, so it's time to move on and concentrate on what we've made our name on. Bicycle repair at a reasonable cost with a good honest quality reliable service.
We will be having a stock clearance over the next month with all clothing and apparel at up to 50% off, all Road Cycles will be discounted by at least 30%.
Call into the shop or visit our page to see what's on offer

Sweating is a necessary evil when it comes to training. It’s our bodies primary way of keeping us cool. Overheating causes a drop in performance and in extreme cases, can affect our health.
As we sweat we lose fluids and electrolytes (salts), to help maintain the fluid balance in our body it's crucial that we replace these. If we just drink water, eventually we dilute the concentration of salts in our body. This can also be detrimental to both performance and health.
Gauging how much to drink isn’t always easy. Our sweat rates can vary widely, depending on the conditions, how hard we are working and how many layers of clothing we have on. Weighing yourself before and after training can give you a guide to how much fluid you should be drinking.
SiS GO Hydro and SiS GO Electrolyte both offer rehydration options, the key difference being the carbohydrate content. SiS GO Hydro is more suitable for shorter sessions, when additional carbohydrate is not needed. SiS GO Electrolyte provides a balance of carbohydrate and electrolytes to provide an energy source and assist in fluid absorption.
The idea of drinking to thirst has become popular again in recent years. However, in a race it is easy to get distracted by what is going on around you, and in colder conditions your perception of your need to drink can be affected.
Trying to be structured with your energy and fluid intake can help to make sure that you perform at your best, whether in training or racing.
