Welcome to Oxfordshire's premier Bike Shop
Rides on Air is Oxfordshire's premier bike shop. We offer everything a cyclist might need, from a simple inner tube right through to top of the range road and mountain bikes.
Based in the scenic market town of Wallingford, the shop is easy to find with a large car park behind the store and just a 30 second walk from the marketplace.
With over 200 bikes in stock at any time we have something for everyone. Children's balance bikes, ladies shopping bikes, scooters and extensive ranges of road and mountain bikes for all ages and pockets.
We stock bikes from Whyte, Marin, Merida, Wilier, Dawes, Mekk, Bronx and Claud Butler.
We also carry a huge range of parts and accessories for all types of bicycle from all the leading cycling brands.
Our busy workshop offers cost-effective repairs, upgrades, custom builds and in house wheel building services. Whether you need some help fixing a puncture or are looking to build your dream bike, our Cytech qualified technicians will help keep your bike in perfect working order.
On the shop floor, our team of friendly staff are here to help with expert buying advice. We know that buying a bike can be difficult with so many options available, but our years of experience will make sure you get exactly what you need and the best possible service.
