About Us

We are a small, friendly independent bike shop, in Orton Waterville in Peterborough that has been serving the cyclists of Peterborough since 1973.
Whatever type of cyclist you are, we have a bike for you. From the little ones' first bike up to electrically assisted bikes - we have something for everyone. Find your perfect bike at Bristows!

We're happy to talk over the phone, email or other social media, but prefer to talk to you face to face, so we can check your sizing (no two bikes measure the same!) and make sure the bike you are looking for does what you need it to do and fits you as it should.

All our bikes are fully assembled and given a full pre-delivery inspection prior to leaving the shop and we include a free post ride inspection after 6-8 weeks (booking required).
We keep a good range of bikes and accessories in stock, but have access to so much more for next day delivery.

Our workshop is always in demand so as a consequence we are usually booked up well in advance so we highly recommend you ring to check availability before turning up with your bike.
