I needed a pair of cycling shoes and John provided an excellent service. The first pair he found for me fitted well and he even took the time to fit the cleats. He also provided additional advice on how the shoe should fit/feel on the pedal and recommended ‘tweaks’, as necessary. Excellent service all round and highly recommended!

Had my bike fixed here today. Customer service was outstanding, everyone was so friendly and helpful from the woman on the desk to the people fixing the bikes in the workshop. Tim, who fixed my bike, was so helpful and did a great job. So quick and so impressed. Thank you so so much. Seriously rate the service here and would 100% come back if I had any other issues. Everyone went the extra mile.

I did a Fix It class at Evans Cycles near Victoria Station, London, and it was brilliant! The guy who took the class, Alex, was absolutely lovely and really knowledgeable and patient - he shared all sorts of little tips and tricks which will really come in handy and have made me feel much more confident about knowing my way around my bike and fixing issues myself. There were three of us in the class, all with slightly different bikes, and Alex took the time to tell us about how to deal with our own bikes specifically (e.g., how to adjust disk brakes and rim brakes, how to adjust different gear mechanisms). I didn't know anything about bike maintenance previously, and so this was a great beginner session for me.

The staff went above and beyond - I was really amazed. I arrived 2 min before the store closed with a flat tyre 12 km away from home and understood that they could sell me only a tube and a air pump. at this time and I need to take care of the rest myself. After seeing me struggling in front of the shop window doing the job myself, someone from the staff called Alex came out and helped and explained me how to change the tube and get everything fixed. I was really happy as I wouldn't know how to do it myself! Thank you again!!

Good, quite quick service. However, it comes at a cost. Changing a tire shouldn't cost 65 Pounds.

I went in to get my front tire alligned a few weeks ago and forgot to rate... the guy was friendly , paid what I was quoted, did the job quick enough in under 2 hours, I gave the time limit, which i was happy about and even pumped my tires But as i was riding away i noticed it wasnt straight as a line straight, there was still a tiny amount of wobble. In the front tire, it was straight enough not to drag too much but yeah would pop down again and give them longer to do it.

I did the Love London tour and really enjoyed it! Ollie was our tour guide and he was knowledgeable and entertaining. I am a cyclist in the states but have never cycled in such a busy city - you will go through some heavy traffic areas and busy pedestrian areas so I wouldn’t recommend this tour for young kids. Overall it was fantastic and I got to see many great sights in a London!

Zelda was great! Our tour was delayed by viewing all the events of the 100th Anniversary of the RAF at Buckingham Palace. Saw the 100 aircraft flyby Trafalgar Square and even the Queen!! We volunteered to make up some time on the return, but Zelda couldn't resist stopping and showing us each sight, even though we were about 1.5 hours delayed. Thank you so much for the highlight of our London trip.

Had a lovely time riding around London on these bikes but got stung on the price which is Not explained well at all. Basically the first half hour is free of each journey but then it's £2 per half hour for 24 hours and higher after that. There are loads of docking stations but many times they were full so you then have to bike to find another (we did find a helpful app with maps telling you where the docking stations were and how full too) The pricing point firstly states it's free for first 30 mins then £2 for 24 hours, not true, it's badly explained. You have to keep docking your bike in all the time to keep the price down. Still a good fun way to get around, i would use these bikes again but think that it's fairer if your fully aware of the charges instead of wondering where that £40 has suddenly disappeared too from your bank account a few days later.

Very satisfied. 2£ for all day...

Es bruuuuutal que haya tantas paradas de bicis y a este precio para una ciudad como Londres. Por solo dos libras puedes alquilar una bici 24h. Con una tarjeta de crédito se pueden coger hasta 4 bicis y la verdad es que funcionan muy bien. Una gozada.
