The Hire Centre is open and staffed Thursday – Sunday from 10am to 5pm, with advance bookings available Tuesday & Wednesday. Last hire is 3pm. It is recommended that bookings are made ahead of your visit.
Arragons Cycle Centre is run by Phil & Sarah with the help of a dedicated team of Sales Staff and Cycle Technicians. The business has been in the family for 50 years, with Sarah's parents owning the shop previously. Because of this history, we have long standing great relations with our suppliers, who are the industries finest.
Big changes started in 2015 as we updated the layout of our shop which included new displays & a wider range of product.
2017 saw a brand new Shimano Service Centre, with investment in tools & our mechanic team. In addition to this, Chris trained to offer Precision Bike Fit, thanks to John Dennis of Physiohaus.
In 2018, we were excited to collaborate with Lowther Castle & Gardens to launch Arragon's Cycle Hire. We are proud to be associated with this amazing attraction, offering a selection of E-Bikes, all terrain bikes, some super light children's bikes & a number of Scoots to hire. For this season, we've extended our offering to add Road, Gravel & a child trailer.
As a family run independent store, our aim is to ensure our customers receive the best service possible, for any inquiry, every time!
Whether you use your bike for sports, commuting or recreation, a reliable bike service is key in ensuring that you continue to enjoy your bike. Regular bike service by professionals increases the longevity of your bike as well as your riding pleasure. It also helps prevent unexpected, avoidable service costs.
Bike Fit Service:
A correctly fitting bike is crucial to injury prevention, comfort and performance.
Chris has been Fully Trained by John Dennis from Physiohaus, who is one of the most experienced Bike Fitters worldwide, working as lead instructor and fitter since 2009. He has developed and delivered education and advanced bike fitting philosophy for other bike fitters around the world.
Suspension Service / Set Up:
Our mechanics have been Cytech Trained to Level 3 to fix and service the latest Suspension Forks and Shocks from Fox, Rockshox, Marzocchi and SR Suntour. You’ll have peace of mind when you trust us with your suspension and it will be carried out in house in our fully equipped Shimano Service Centre.
Custom Bike Build:
Have you ever thought of building up your dream bike? Our team of Level 3 Cytech Qualified mechanics are here to help you hand pick a range of components to build exactly that. We can help you achieve the ideal set-up from efficient positioning & compatible components all to meet your budget.
Our cycle hire journey started with the launch of a network of dedicated cycling and walking trails on Lowther Estate during the Summer of 2018. We received a number of requests to hire from our store in Penrith so decided to introduce a selection of bikes that are available to collect from our hub at the cycle shop.
There are a number of iconic road rides direct from our door including Hartside Pass & Great Dunn fell along with Kirkstone Pass via Glenridding if you're feeling particularly adventurous. If mountain biking is more your thing, you can access the Lowther trails to get straight on to High Street and explore the wonderful routes which are naturally challenging on the open fell. The bikes in our hire centre at Lowther are aimed at families and leisure, whereas the bikes you can collect from Penrith include some more aggressive full suspension models.
