Love Our Town after Lockdown

Keep our town open for business!

We’re proud to live and work in this great town. Our bike shop has been going for 25 years. It’s just one of many unique, independent small shops that together, make Hebden Bridge a pretty special place to live.

Keeping you riding, giving you freedom

Over the last few years, we’ve seen long-standing businesses go under, and we are now in the most challenging situation any of us have faced. We want to be here for you now, and in the future, to keep you out riding bikes, to inspire more people to ride bikes and maybe to offer a taste of freedom that a bike can give. Freedom that is increasingly hard to find.

Shop Locally, both on and offline

All of the local shops are now finding ways to adapt to this every changing situation. Check out the local businesses at to find out how we are working to support you to shop with us and stay safe. We have 4 ways to #staysafe #shopathome

Spend now, shop later!

We sell gift cards and vouchers. Payment can be taken over the phone and the card can be sent to you. Alternatively, you can save the voucher with us to spend whenever you like. It helps us to know that you’ll be visiting in the future, and maybe gives you something to look forward to!


Click and Collect at Blazing Saddles

Stay at home shopping – 4 ways to click and collect
1. Blazing Saddles Shop

Ok, so this one’s technically Ring and Collect…:-) Use us to help you to source the things you need at this time – we’re here for you! At the shop, there’s a wide range of bikes, tools, parts, clothing  and accessories . Everything we sell can be purchased over the phone and collection can be arranged. Luckily, we are still able to order things we don’t stock from all our usual distributors. We are also offering free local delivery on orders over £50. Please just ask. You are supporting us as a small independent local business, and we are happy to be here to keep you all riding.

2. Madison Freewheel

Madison is the UK’s largest distributor of bicycle parts and accessories, and Freewheel is the new e-commerce website for Madison and Sportline.

What does that mean for our customers?

Shop with confidence. With over 70 famous cycling brands under one online roof, Freewheel gives you all the benefits of ordering online, especially during these difficult times, but backed and supported by Blazing Saddles, your local independent bike shop. The best of all worlds!

Just like any online shop, you can create an account or checkout as a guest. Simply select and pay, and choose us as your local store.

3. Specialized

You can now purchase products (including bikes) through Specialized’s online store and have your order delivered to your local bike shop through their Click and Collect programme. If a product is in stock, you just add it to your cart and choose us as your chosen delivery address.

Specialized also want you to be completely satisfied with your experience so should your item that you purchased through the online store fail to meet your expectations, they will gladly accept its return within 15 days of the purchase date. An exchange can also be made within 15 days for the exact item in either a different size or colour.

Bicycles returned must be in new/unused condition. Before going back to the Authorized Specialized Retailer where you collected the bicycle, please call Rider Care on 020 83913500 to obtain a full refund or exchange of your purchase, as well as the details of how to return your bicycle.

4. Brompton
  1. Choose a Brompton: Choose one of the bikes Brompton has in stock at and select us as your nearest store.
  2. Shipped to Store: Your bike will be delivered to us in 3 working days.
  3. Get notified: We will carry out our usual build/pre-collection inspection and then contact you to arrange a convenient collection time.
  4. Collect and register: Collect your bike and register it with Brompton on their website. This is essential so we can track your bike warranty and inform you about available product upgrades.
  5. Ride and enjoy: Commute, explore, escape and everything in-between.

Normal Brompton bike ordering is still available – you can custom build your own bike at brompton bike-builder, then order it at the shop. Use the bike build number generated when you save your design. If you need advice about which Brompton or just want it done for you (!), that’s what we’re here for! Just ring the shop and we will help you with every stage. Bikes ordered by the custom build system usually take between 4-8 weeks to be hand built. Ask about the time scale as soon as you order.

Finally, if you just want a Brompton NOW, we have stock bikes in the shop all year round. Ring the shop and arrange to have a look. They’re all 6 speed and in a range of our favourite colours. Test ride our Demo bike for free too.

An important update for essential workers

An Important Update for all essential workers from Blazing Saddles.

Firstly, a huge thank you and respect for what you are doing every day. We know that keeping your bike on the road, especially if it’s your transport to work, is really important right now.
We want to do what we can to make part of your life a little easier, and keep your bike in tip top condition, so, for this reason, we would like to offer a courtesy bike for you to use whilst your bike is being serviced or repaired. You will also get priority treatment.
Just let us know you’re an essential worker when you book your bike in, and we’ll do the rest.

To book, or for any other enquiries please ring the shop on 01422 844435.



Keeping you riding and staying safe

Hi everyone,

Hope you’re staying safe in these testing times.

We’re open for you

We’re open for repairs, bike parts and new bike sales, by appointment only. Here’s how it works:

We are using our shop as our contact point so no-one gets missed via different channels. Whatever you need: PHONE THE SHOP on 01422844435 , and someone will reply and book you in.

Bike Services and repairs

Please wash your bike at the back of the shop before drop off. Our mechanics wear gloves for the repair/service and your bike will be cleaned/sterilized before you pick it up.

Bike parts and accessories

Need a new helmet? Or maybe a chain, tools, or even a wheel…whatever you need simply email your requests and John will let you know when you can arrange to pick your items up. Payment over the phone is best, although if that isn’t possible we can accept contactless payment by arrangement in the shop. If you’re not sure exactly what you need, John can ring you and discuss options.

New Bikes

We’re happy to help anyone who needs a new bike. We can discuss what your needs are in detail, or you can make an appointment to come in and see the bikes we have in stock. Phone John to make arrangements. We are still selling bikes through the bike to work scheme and we also offer finance – interest free credit up to 2 years.


We would like to offer a free local delivery service for orders over £50 to help you to minimise journeys and stay safe. Deliveries would probably be available once a week so we make one main journey to everyone who needs us. Areas would include Todmorden, Hebden, Mytholmroyd and potentially a little further, please just ask.

Looking Ahead

Some of you may not want, or may not be able to be out at this time. We will be here for you when this is all over! We’ve had people asking if they can buy vouchers towards bike services in the future, or gift vouchers for friends and family who maybe haven’t had the birthday they had planned etc. No matter what the occasion or reason, the answer is very much yes. You can buy vouchers for any amount from £5 upwards over the phone. We can send you a copy of the voucher or simply register it under your name in the shop.

Keep safe and very best wishes from all of us to all of you.
