About Cycle42

Who is Cycle 42?

Well my name is Charlie and I set up Cycle 42 to help you. 

First of all I love bikes of all shapes and sizes and I'd love to make sure your bicycle is everything it can be. For what is basically 2 wheels, some tubes and a few moving parts they can be freedom, fun and excitement but also confusing, frustrating and dangerous things. 

Let me take the hassle out of the equation so you can simply enjoy it.

What is Cycle 42?

We are a small, local bicycle shop and cafe. I would like to make sure all your cycling needs are met and maybe a coffee and a cake as well.

We have everything from your kids first balance bike all the way to top spec racing kit and everything in-between.

We are showcasing and retailing as many domestic products as we can. The UK has a rich and historic pedigree of innovative design and this is no different in cycling products.

Why Cycle 42?

It's a busy world and time is a valuable thing, let's save you some by collecting and returning your bike. If youre place of collection and return is within 5 miles of Orpington War Memorial, I will collect and return it as part of your service at times convenient to you, or if a bit further, there may be a small charge.  

I have been servicing, repairing, restoring bicycles and building custom builds for the past 20 years.

I am Cytech qualified and registered with the Association of Cycle Traders.

I have the ability and equipment to work on anything from your little person's first bike through to professional level racing bikes and everything between.
