The oldest cycle retailer in Yorkshire has opened the county’s largest cycle megastore in Wetherby.

All Terrain Cycles’ new 9,000ft two-storey showroom, in Audby Lane close to the A1, stocks more than 1,000 mountain, road and BMX bikes as well as clothing and accessories.

The space has been transformed into a £1m megastore featuring a workshop staffed by trained repairs technicians. It was ceremonially opened by Coun Tom Murray, the Lord Mayor of Leeds, this week.

Tony Booth, managing director at All Terrain Cycles, said: “The timing couldn’t be better given the mounting excitement around the Grand Depart.

“We’re already seeing increasing numbers of cyclists enjoying the Yorkshire countryside and we anticipate that, much like Wimbledon, interest in the sport will increase after July.”

The family business, originally established as Riley Brothers Cycles in 1907, has opened the new outlet in addition to its existing store at Salts Mill in Saltaire.
