Rides on Air is a bike shop run by people who live and breathe bicycles. Everybody who works in the store rides bikes in their spare time and can frequently be found riding with some of the local cycle clubs or enjoying some of the fantastic cycling to be found in Oxfordshire and beyond.

The shop has been in the town for over 70 years originally called Castles and changed names in 1996. Early 2019 saw us move to an historic Grade 2 Listed department store in the centre of town, sandwiched between St Mary's and St Martin's Streets. Perfectly complementing our long legacy of local trading and we're still one of the biggest stores in Wallingford.

Our ethos has always been to offer the best products and service and it's something our reputation is built on. As a local bike shop we pride ourselves on serving the local community in everything bike related and more. From something simple like a new inner tube, to something a bit more specialised like a new shock for your mountain bike, we're on hand to make sure you get everything you need.

So, if you're looking for your next bike. Some new components or accessories or just a bit of advice, then make sure you visit Rides on Air.
