We are Folk Like You
Folk Like You is a female-fronted bike shop for everyday people.
We offer a range of bicycles, electric bikes, clothing, and accessories. Everything we stock has been carefully selected for their blend of style and function, so that you can use your bike anytime, anywhere, for any reason, and feel awesome whilst doing it.
How are we different?
First and foremost we’re listeners. We want to hear how you live your life because we know that with the right bike and most suitable kit, we can help you to weave cycling into your weekly routine, and your weekend adventures. Afterall, Cycling is empowering. You can travel by bike safely and sustainably, without compromise, wherever you are and wherever you are going - and we’re experts at helping Folk Like You to keep those pedals turning.
We can help you find healthier ways to pick up your groceries, to get to the office, to visit your friends, to find a good pub, to enjoy the outdoors, and to blow raspberries at everyone who's sat in traffic, shouting at the radio, as you pedal by. We help folk like you find their freedom.
We’re incredibly proud that through our approach, the first conversation we have with every manufacturer and provider begins with a question about ethics. We’re only interested in working with businesses, whether large or small who, like us, care for people and the planet, not simply profit. When you shop with us, you are shopping conscientiously and you are shopping responsibly.
We also know that cycling in the UK has become a little bit exclusive and we want to change that. Or rather, we want YOU to change that. We love exploding myths, explaining jargon, and cutting through the BS you might encounter in cycling culture. We’re here to be the change we want to see, will you join us?
Sure, Cycling is sport. But Cycling is also transport, Cycling is art, Cycling is fashion, Cycling is safe, Cycling is sustainable, Cycling is utilitarian, Cycling is fun, Cycling is empowering, Cycling is your salvation. Cycling is for Folk Like You.
You can travel by bike safely and sustainably, without compromise, wherever you are and wherever you are going - and we’re experts at helping you along the way.
