Visit Blazing Saddles
Welcome to the online home of Blazing Saddles, Calderdale’s local bike shop, voted UK Star Store 2014 for our friendly and welcoming atmosphere and expert knowledge.
We are a small independent business, with two shops; our busy Service and Repairs workshop, rooted in the market town of Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, and our brand new Mountain Bike Centre, opening on the 9th April just up the valley in Cragg Vale. Deep in the heart of the Pennines, we’ve got world class riding on our doorstep and support a growing community of cyclists of all sorts, from hardened downhill heroes and top class triathletes to everyday commuters and towpath pootlers.
We believe that everybody on a bike deserves the same great service and a great bike to enjoy too.
Read on to find out more about what we do, the brands we stock and the services we offer. Our new centre in Cragg Vale is a mountain biker’s heaven, with an Orange Lounge showcasing the range from Orange MTB, plus a range of bikes from Specialized. We are a dedicated Demo Centre for Orange, Specialized, Brompton and Kalkhoff, and can offer test rides on bikes to help you make the very best choice. Just ask for details. We also stock quality accessories and clothing, including clothing from Sweet Protection, Altura and Specialized. Why not pay us a visit? We’re always happy to help with any queries and you can ring us, email, or even better, pop in and chat.
While you’re here, why not bring your bike and treat yourself to a ride. The centre at Cragg Vale is a great biking destination, and some of the best trails in the UK start right on our doorstep. There’s free parking, a bike wash, a cafe, delicatessen, and two breweries for refreshments whilst you’re visiting, and Hebden Bridge is only 15 minutes away, with its numerous cafes, shops, restaurants, bars and b&bs should you wish to make your stay a longer one. Come in and chat and you’ll find we’re happy to offer route or bike advice over a cuppa, particularly if you supply the biscuits!
Back in Hebden the trails and tracks continue out of the valley up onto the tops, and we also have free facilities to wash your bike and a workstand you can use at the back of the shop, and secure hoops for locking your bikes onto located at the front.
