Where To Buy Bicycles in Pretoria
If you’re from Pretoria and looking to get back out on the road (or to try cycling for the first time) as lockdown restrictions start to ease up later this year, a good place to start is to consider some of the options for places to buy bicycles and accessories in your local area. Not only will you be saving on shipping and delivery costs, but you’ll also be supporting local businesses, who need all the help they can get in a post COVID-19 landscape. So where should you begin if you’re keen to get started on your search? We’ve got you covered with three good options for you to consider right off the bat.
The Growing Cycling Community in Pretoria
Before you start picking out bicycles, the first thing you should know is that your decision to get going means you’re joining what is considered to be a growing cycling community in the Pretoria area. While Cape Town and Johannesburg may tend to get more conventional “love” for their communities, that’s not to say that there isn’t a united community in the Pretoria area as well. If you’re wondering about where to look to connect with other riders, try the Velo cycling club, TuksCycling or do a Google search for the club closest to your home. You’ll be making friends and enjoying Sundays on the road before you even know it.
If you’re on the hunt for a new bicycle in Pretoria, a good place to start is Lynnwood Cyclery. Known for being a specialised concept store, their team combines high quality products with something that may come in handy to you as well — expert advice. The owners pride themselves on what they dub the store’s x-factor, namely its ability to provide both personal and friendly service. This store is part of a collective of cycling stores scattered across Gauteng, initially opened as an additional support for the growing cycling community in the greater Pretoria area.
Cycle Lab (Pretoria Megastore)
Cycle Lab has long been on a mission to offer the best one-stop bike shopping experience to consumers across South Africa. The company has a megastor in Pretoria that compliments its growing footprint across Johannesburg, Durban, Boksburg and Cape Town. If you’re in a rush to get your hands on the items you need, they sell all their products online 24 hours a day through their website too. Our suggestion is to visit them in person when it is possible to do so, as you’ll be blown away by the diverse nature of their stock. That way, you’ll make a more informed decision alongside the advice of their team too.
Positive Sports Solutions
Positive Sports Solutions may be centrally located in Sunninghill, but they’re worth being added to the list of options to consider because of their uncanny ability to deliver their products to customers across the entire Gauteng. The company offers accessories, bike carriers, helmets, cycling components and so much more and typically, at more affordable rates than their competitors. If you’re not quite getting what you’re looking for from the stores that are physically located in Pretoria, but need an option that will deliver to you directly, Positive Sports Solutions is the way to go. See you out on the road soon!
