Bike Sales, Repair & Hire – Alex Dan’s Cycle Centre

30 Years and still on the go….

Alex Dan’s Cycle Centre has been on the go for the last 30 years, selling and repairing bikes as well as hiring out bikes to the locals and tourists. The shop was bought over in January 2013 by Marc, who now runs the shop, primarily on his own, but has the help of family as and when required, usually in the busy summer months.

The shop sells all sorts of cycling accessories from well known brands, as well as bikes from Merida, Diamondback and Raleigh. The bikes, in the main, are mountain bikes, but there is a small selection of road bikes and hybrids for sale. There is also a well equipped workshop to cater for all types of repairs on all types of bike. Marc is Cytech qualified and is well able to look after your bike repair and servicing needs.

There are some great mountain biking trails in the Castle Grounds of Stornoway, just a minutes ride away from Alex Dan’s Cycle Centre, which is well worth spending a couple of hours in. It is a very sheltered area, so when the winds are blowing (which they do a lot!) you can still get some good riding in. And if you have a problem you are within easy reach of Alex Dan’s Cycle Centre.

The Islands also opened the Hebridean Way back in Marc 2016, and epic route starting on the Isle of Barra and ending at the Butt of Lewis (Ness) the most northern part of the Island chain.

Alex Dan’s Cycle Centre aims to provide you with great customer service and assistance, without giving you the hard sell.
