Cyclelink expands into new premises in Thames Ditton

Bike repair service Cyclelink has opened a new shop in Thames Ditton, widening its range of services whilst still catering for all levels of cyclist.

Bike mechanic Andrew Manning started Cyclelink in the summer of 2014 offering a high quality bike repair and servicing facility to cyclists in both the Kingston and Elmbridge boroughs. With a good level of demand and a growing reputation, Cyclelink has outgrown its original workshop and now moved to new premises in Thames Ditton. The shop is located at 52 High Street and continues to offer a comprehensive service to all types of cyclist from repairing a puncture on a child’s bike through to servicing a folding cycle or rebuilding a pedigree road bike, Cyclelink offers an excellent level of service, impartial advice and a friendly atmosphere.  As part of the Park Tool School scheme, they also offer cyclist the opportunity to learn more about maintaining their bikes between shop servicing with a range of lessons aimed at men, women and mixed groups.
The shop stocks a range of parts and accessories including essentials such as tyres and inner tubes, tools and cleaning products as well as lights, baby seats, helmets and locks. Opened early in April, the shop has been well supported by both existing customers and cyclists from Esher, Thames Ditton, Surbiton and Kingston. It also has the benefit of being located close to several local coffee shops, some  excellent pubs and cheap/free local parking!

Get involved?

Cycling is a fantastic way to exercise, travel, and enjoy the great outdoors. Wind in the hair (under your helmet of course), sunglasses on, and a picnic in your bag. However, not everyone sees it this way.

Therefore, CycleKingston is appealing to you to share the good, the bad (and the ugly?!) We want to hear your cycling experiences, news and showcase success stories along the way too.

If you have material you think we should feature on the website, drop us an email on with the information and some images and we'll do our best to feature them.
