At Inspiral Cycles we've got a great range of hand-selected products in shop, and the knowledge to help you find exactly the right thing. Our small team are passionate about all things cycling, from commuting and leisure riding to racing both on and off road. We know what products provide the best riding experience, and we love sharing this knowledge with our customers.
We've got a sensible and no-nonsense approach to fixing and servicing bikes, with a good turnaround time. Bring your bike in, we can have a chat about what it needs and what it is likely to cost, and if you're happy we can do the work for you.
We pride ourselves in looking after all our customers, but don't just take our word for it - check out our 5* reviews on Google and Facebook!
We look forward to seeing you in store, or speaking to you on the phone or via email!

    Shop owner Gary loves to go racing - Mountain bike Enduro races are what he does most, sometimes he's racing his Transition Patrol, other times he's racing a Lapierre Overvolt ebike. He's been on the podium a few times too! Gary has also been known to do the odd CX race too, and keeps on promising to do more…

    Ebikes are Gary's current favourite thing - giving everyone the ability to go further and do more - they even make the climbs enjoyable, rather than just a necessary evil. When you're next in shop ask Gary what he's got planned for his next all-day double-battery ebike epic adventure!

    When not riding a bike, Gary is easily found in shop stoking the fire, making coffee, eating flapjack, or sharing his enthusiasm for cycling with anyone and everyone.


    Riding road, mixed terrain, mountain bike and commuting to work daily, Francis is the epitome of the do-everything, go-anywhere cyclist. He was one of the few to complete the 66.6 mile 2018 Hamsterley Super Beast, and more recently has explored the strange world of Bikepacking.

    Francis is also an incredibly knowledgeable bike shop professional, with over a decade of experience working in the bike trade. Francis manages our ordering and online shop, and is especially good at sourcing the hardest-to-find spare parts!


    Fiona doesn't describe herself as 'a cyclist', she's a person who just happens to enjoy riding a bike. After discovering e-bikes in 2015, she's enjoying cycling more than ever before - from the Black Isle to the Isle of Wight. It means she can ride faster (overtaking Gary on the uphills) and ride further - over 50 miles in a day, which she never dreamt possible before. Find her more regularly on the disused railway lines around Bishop Auckland and up beautiful Weardale and Teesdale to the edge of County Durham.

    Fiona keeps Inspiral Cycles running from behind the scenes and is our lead on community engagement projects for Bishop Auckland town regeneration.


    Astronout, physicist, shark tamer, body builder, high roller and racing car driver; are all words never used to describe George. However, he does love everything two wheels from road riding, to enduro racing.

    Working at Inspiral since 2018, George is super knowledgeable and enthusiastic about helping people enjoy cycling as much as he does.


    Loving a challenge, Andy prefers riding the natural trails of the Yorkshire Moors and Dales, doing all day epics with plenty of climbing. He's recently taken up gravel riding, and when he's not out on a bike you're most likely to find him in the gym.

    "If it's mechanical, I can fix it" - Andy is Inspiral Cycles' master mechanic, and has been fixing bikes (and cars, various appliances and pretty much anything that can be tinkered with) since an early age.
