Passionately independent since 1977
In 1977 three bike enthusiasts disagreed with the corporate antics of the bike shops they came across. Their dream was to create a customer centred bike shop; where workers had an equal say, and profits would be shared. It was out of this dream that the Edinburgh Bicycle Cooperative was born! Originally starting out with just one shop in the Bruntsfield area of Edinburgh (which we still have), we now employ over 100 people across our five stores and head office. Always wanting to support the current and next generations of cyclists, we stock a range of bikes including hybrid bikes, mountain bikes, road bikes and kids bikes. We are known as the “e-bike experts” as we were early adopters of electric bikes and we now also stock electric cargo bikes - ideal for families or businesses wanting an eco-friendly and convenient way to travel.
If you’re looking for a bike shop that you can really trust, run by cyclists who are passion about cycling, then pop into your nearest store. We have two stores in Edinburgh (Bruntsfield and Canonmills) as well as stores in Aberdeen, Newcastle & Leeds; all are open seven days a week. Along with a wide range of bicycles and accessories, our Bosch and Shimano trained and certified mechanics can carry out servicing, repairs to all bikes (including electric bikes) and custom builds. We also have an extensive fleet of demo bikes available in all our shops - a great option if you want to try before you buy.
