Planning Your Cycling Route

Cyclestreets.net is a brilliant little website for bicyclists. Just enter where you are and where you want to go and it will take you a proper cyclists route, tell you the distance, how quiet or otherwiseit will be and how many calories you will burn completing it.

This is extraordinary. You can actually choose a route to avoid unnecessary hills. Excellent for the part-time cyclist!

Great service, Great quality, great price. Definitely visit Cj cycles

Just visited Southport over the weekend and my bike developed a fault. Phoned CJ Cycles after checking google for help, and I was told to pop in. Excellent service from the start - a quick cable replacement was done whilst I waited. Really helpful staff, really reasonable price. However the bike then needed further adjustment as the gears would not work properly. Left it there, returned 2 hours later. It seems that a previous repair on the main crank (done elsewhere) had not been refitted correctly. When I asked what extra there was to pay the answer was - no charge! Superb service. Highly recommended.

Left MB for service not knowing degree of how worn gears were. Got an honest phone call later re wear and what had to be replaced and price to fit. On collecting bike it was explained bike required more than originally explained but was done at no extra cost with some quality used parts. MB runs a dream. What a Rolls Royce service. If you want a job done properly go no where else.

Always excellent, friendly service and good prices.

Fantastic cafe serving good coffee. Very chilled out place with jovial staff.

Good Coffee, good food and a great atmosphere! Bike friendly and a Master like Stuart on hand if you need your bike tweaked! Why is there not a chain of these yet..?! ;)

I arrived here on a cold/snowy Sunday morning looking for a bike to hire. The guy wasn't expecting any customer, given the freezing weather. He was very nice and helpful. The bike I was given (in the pictures below) was sturdy and a pleasure to ride. I spent a very enjoyable afternoon exploring the surrounding area. I highly recommend this place! :)

We hired 2 adult bikes. £6 for 4 hours on a sunny Saturday. The bikes where like the European ones, not the most stylish but functioned well with an easy locking system. Southport has some excellent trails for cycling. We did the shrimp one(avaliable as leaflet or online) well signposted. Mainly on bespoke cycle paths. If you want to cycle but not hassle of karting bikes this is a great facility. We took childrens bikes 8 and 11 year old in car.
