Is there a schedule for Bike Doctor at SGH 2022 yet? Thanks 👍
Thanks for sorting out my brake for me today. Much appreciated :)
Had my bike fixed by the guys at the new Basset shop. I was given advice on what needed replacing and let them do their magic. Absolutely spot on and runs like new. Excellent service from knowledgeable honest guys. Cheers
Thanks guys. Fantastic service in swapping over my pedals.
Thanks guys, great tune up - really happy with the crisp gear changes and the much firmer brakes :)
Has my bike serviced today, fabulous service and advice, thank you 😊
Spoke to Tom today about my sons bike having some hydraulic brakes fitted. What excellent customer service..... Explained everything so clearly and was incredibly professional. Well done guys, Keep up the good work 
Thanks Rideride for my service. Coming into work, it felt like a new bike
A local cyclist can help you with routes from your home to wherever you want to go - please just ask.
Hi guys. Do you have any used mountain bikes for sale? Looking for frame size medium or larger. Disc brakes and single or double suspension. It's for a confident teen boy biker. Or recommendations for where to look. ~£500 max. Thank you. Hope you're all doing ok.
Any idea when you may open up with reduced hours?

A date has been set for this year's CATT 🎀

Organised this year by the traders of Bitterne Triangle, slightly later in the day but after some previous feedback I think this will work better for some 😊

For any enquiries please contact Darn It & Stitch or rideride

Good job we have a well stocked and equipped workshop across the water to borrow from!

Last weeks lucky customer just picked up his bike!

Congratulations to Adrian de Paoli our 2020th bike. Adrian received his £156 refurbishment on his Dawes hybrid for free. He also dropped in his Condor for servicing, sorry Adrian that one won't be free!

We've worked on over 2000 bikes since reopening. We closed for 6 weeks during the peak of the pandemic and came back to a cycle crazed city. In response we doubled our team and worked our socks off.

To celebrate we zero'd the bill for the 2000th and 2020th job.

We've done it, 2000 bikes!

Congratulations to Paul Lewis who got his £63 repair on his Carrera ebike for free.

We've worked on 2000 bikes since reopening in April and to celebrate we're going to zero the bill for two lucky customers.

Job 2000 and job 2020 will be free of charge. Will they be 'The Works' service or just a quick inner tube change, who knows?

You could be job 2020, book your bike in at rideride.co.uk/workshop

General information

rideride have a fully equipped workshop in Southampton to undertake all kinds of bicycle repairs and servicing. Bring your bike to us where we can carry out any required work and store it safely ready for collection. All jobs will be quoted on with a range of options before any work is done. We offer a range of maintenance courses where you can learn anything from basic skills to keep yourself rolling through the year (Tune Up), through to a more intense course for those looking to undertaking their own bicycle maintenance (Strip & Rebuild) which is available upon request. The Tune Up course covers the basic essentials. In the 2hr course you will cover skills such as repairing a puncture, indexing the gears and tuning up the brakes. The course is open to people of all skills and abilities looking to gain a greater understanding of bicycle mechanics, as well as the confidence to be able ride knowing you can keep yourself moving. £30 The Straighten Up course does just that! Focusing on the wheels, you will learn the art of wheel truing alongside hub servicing. Wheels take quite a beating, so in undertaking this course you will be able to keep yourself rolling smooth for years to come! £30 We offer these courses both here in the workshop and on location at workplaces, schools and universities. Get in contact for more information regarding our courses on offer. Our Bike Dr events have become increasingly popular, and we now offer weekly Bike Dr's in Southampton's Guildhall Square every Thursday along with fortnightly Bike Dr's at Southampton University. We are also able to bring our Bike Dr's to a variety of locations like schools, hospitals and even cruise ships! Give us a call or drop an email to us and we'd be more than happy to bring the Bike Dr to your organisation.
