We love bikes… all bikes. We are here for you, whether you are a dedicated roadie who does 100 miles every ride,
a commuter who is nipping through traffic or an occasional cyclist who enjoys a ride with the family at the weekends.

Our founder and Managing Director Nick Brown loves bikes and cycling so much he quit his job as a Finance lawyer in the City. Nick started havebike in 2010 having become frustrated at the lack of bicycle shops in the City. Even when he found one, he was told that there was a waiting list of 2 weeks to get his bike serviced!

This led Nick to spot an opportunity to deliver a much more customer service focused offering than that offered by traditional bicycles shops with large show rooms to sell bikes and small bike workshops in the back.

It was this focus on convenient customer first bicycle servicing ethos, together with a professional background and passion for cycling that led to Nick being able to build the leading bicycle service company.

havebike’s continuing focus on customer service and convenience also led us to launching our innovative Collect & Return bicycle service.

In 2022, havebike was acquired by Halfords, the UK’s leading provider of motoring and cycling products and services.

Now part of the Halfords and Tredz family, havebike will continue to provide its customers with the same level of exceptional service which is now being rolled out across the UK.

Look out for havebike Collect & Return bicycle services coming to a City or Town near you!

We believe in recruiting staff who have a real passion for cycling and want to help others realise that passion, whatever bicycle they ride. Our team are also trained to the highest level on all bikes, with certifications including:

  • Cytech Technical 2 Bicycle Maintenance
  • Cytech E-Bike Certification
  • City & Guilds Levels 1 & 2 Bicycle Maintenance
  • Bosch E-Bike Certification
  • Brompton Accredited Service Centre
  • Shimano Service Centre Accreditation


More people would cycle if the hassle of servicing their bike disappeared. That’s where we come in.

We keep bikes in top condition so cyclists always have a safe and reliable set of wheels.
