We operate from our retail unit on the WestMill Imperial Business Park in Gravesend, Kent.

Our company started out as a passion and morphed into the business it is today, nestled happily in Oxted, Surrey. We strive to improve everyday and aim to learn from new challenges that may cross ourpaths. In 2004 our passion became a reality when we launched our online cycle shop. We were making great strides so we decided to take a leap of faith by opening a shop in Oxted in 2009. We started out small but we've worked hard over the last nine years to obtain quality brands and products.
Larkfield cycles is a family run business. Over the last 26 years we have grown into Larkfield's premier cycle stockist - your one stop cycle shop. We will cater for all your cycling needs. All ourstaff have extensive product knowledge in all different types of cycling from hard-core mountain biking, weekend leisure cyclist, sportive rider, road racer, kids bikes and all that's in-between. We can offer you tips and knowledge from years of experience.
Cycling is about freedom, being able to go anywhere we want. Beng able to take off anytime we want at the drop of a hat. It's the freedom to fly down winding roads, divert onto roads less travelledand navigate harder terrain on our own power. Cycling frees you from stress, from care, time constraints, awkward transport timetables, other people, and set routes. Here you make your own routes, you choose your time, you choose the people, you're in control. You're now responsible.
All new for 2015, our electric bike is much more than just a pretty picture.

There are some good bike shops around. In amongst the ones who treat you like a second class amateur because you don't ride a £3,000 Italian work of art are those who both remember what it was liketo start out in cycling, and understand that they are in a customer service business where they are judged on the quality and value of their product, but also how it is delivered.
We've built the largest, purpose-built e-bike showroom in the UK, showcasing the electric bikes which we have found to be reliable, excellent value and most of all fantastic fun! Have fun browsing thewebsite but in the end, the surest way to know which electric bicycle is best for you is to visit the showroom. Ask us your questions, view the e-bikes close-up and even take an accompanied, no-obligation demonstration ride away from traffic. Head to the contact page for directions.
