Shop of the Month | August | Noah's Ark

http://www.noahsark.co.uk/downloads/1396369963bike-Showroom_1-opti.jpgIn 1983, Chris and his wife Charlotte opened independent Gloucestershire bike shop Noah's Ark and started selling bicycles, then in 1989 also opened Noah's snowboard shop. The staff are all dedicated riders, whether it be on the mud, road or snow.

Noah's is located in one of the best cycling spots in the country, the Cotswolds. In 2006 they moved to a group of historic listed buildings in need of much repair, which has now been lovingly restored to how it looks today.

Just last month Noah's Ark expanded even further and now has a dedicated separate road bike store. The new shop is situated in the same Brimscombe complex and provides a more extensive range of equipment for road bike enthusiasts.

The older store will focus more on mountain bike equipment and specialists will be situated in each shop.

Noah's stock a broad range of brands including Specialized, Cannondale and Whyte, while their large, fully stocked workshop services all types of bikes from all disciplines Kids, Road, Mountain, Tri, Cyclocross and more.
