‘Having never ridden a road bike and signing up for an Ironman I was in need of considerable help! I found out about TY Cycles via the internet and got in contact with Tom. Tom helped me find a bike and was always available to fix any problems I had. His service of collecting my bike from my house made life a lot easier. Not only this, but he always provided an impeccable and polite service, taking care of every little detail. Having no prior knowledge about bikes he was always patient and informative when describing what he was doing, making it easy for me to understand. He also made sure my bike made it to France in perfect condition. Without Tom’s help over the past few months I wouldn’t have even made it to the start line! I will be moving away in a few months, but when there is an issue, or my bike is in need of a service I will always return to TY cycles as Tom runs an outstanding business.’  Joe

Rosie_P_TYcycles_testimonial-3‘The service I have received from TY Cycles is second to none.  Tom has not only repaired my bike but returned it to me in sparkling condition – it is good as new!
I am a Londoner but will be travelling out to the Cotswolds for all future bike repairs as I cannot find the same level of service or value anywhere in London.
Thank you Tom!’  Rosie, Herne Hill, London


‘TY Cycles were perfect in helping me purchase and build my ultimate roadbike. Tom’s expert advice, component knowledge and professional bike building skills were invaluable’Martin, London EC2, Zappi’s CC, Oxford and North Cotswold CC.

TY Cycles were excellent, they delivered the bikes, which were in very good condition, promptly at the time requested and were flexible in allowing us to extend the hire to a second day at short notice.  Their suggested routes were perfect for what we wanted to do and the directions were easy to follow.  I would highly recommend them. Kind regards, Nicola Waters & Ashley Beevers

Thanks so much. Absolutely great customer service, great price and good bike. It was her first biking on a road bike, managed a good 40 miles and she loved it! Which might be bad news for you as she now wants to buy one! Again, thanks. How customer service should be!!! John Preece, RAF Brize Norton

Many thanks for the bike hire today. I had a wonderful day cycling around this lovely part of the world. I commend your service which suited me down to the ground and will gladly recommend you to my friends. It was also nice to chat to your father when he picked up the bike.
Good luck to you in the future.

Hi Tom,
Thanks again to you and Peter for setting up this trip.  Stow-on-the-Wold was our hands-down favorite part of our trip across the pond.  The bike tour was a big part of the reason why!

Thank you also for the great picture!

Sally McKenzie, USA

It was an amazing day cycling. I think we will return soon and I save your number, so next time we do it again. Very nice to meet you too, have a nice evening. Vicky Veltri, London

Hi Tom,

Thanks a lot for the very fine assistance with bikes on June 5th. We really enjoyed the day and the bikes were great and so was the service. Lenna Clausen

Dear Tom,

We would just like to express our thanks and appreciation for fixing our granddaughters’ bikes on Thursday evening.

They are twins and really enjoyed riding their bikes up and down the garden during our Family day. Our son now lives in Hong Kong and it is the first time we have had 4 generations together. It was a beautiful day and your part in it made it complete. 
Thank you very, very much.

Norman & Jackie Bourn

Hello Tom !

The bicycles you provided for during our stay in Moreton on Marsh were
excellent and thanks to them we could do the most of our riding week in the
beautiful countryside.

We were happy to have very light bicycles .  We were very satisfied with
all the equipment too.

Thank you for everything. We wish you a nice summer.

‘Dreading my bike service…… drop it in to the shop……..and hopefully see it in a couple of weeks…….
Not anymore, Tom picked it up on Wednesday for a full gold service, it would have been back by Thursday but for a pesky chain ring bolt which meant she was returned Friday a little over two days.
Tom is a pleasure to deal with and i highly recommend his services as Arnold Schwarzenegger said I’ll be back TY Cycles’.
Van, Banbury

‘I would like to say that you provide an excellent service, which is prompt, very knowledgable and very efficient.

It is so good to come across someone who’s passion for cycling and entrepreneur spirit who has set himself up doing such a fantastic job. Well done, and thanks’ from Paul & Claire Whitaker, Charlbury

‘TY Cycles collected my bike from my home, repaired, serviced and cleaned it after emailing me a quote of what work needed doing and then returned my bike to my home all in a few days.  I did not need to leave my home to receive this excellent very personable service.  I have recommended TY Cycles to all my cycling friends’.  Shani, Great Rollright

‘Swift, efficient, polite and economic service. Tom offers an excellent local business and we will definately be using him again’. Mark, Chipping Norton

‘The service Tom provides is second to none. It is professional, reliable and efficient. Extremely well priced considering the excellent service. Tom will talk you through his assessment, will call you if there are any increased costs required due to unforeseen issues and provides a detailed invoice of labour and parts etc.

He gives choice on how to communicate ie. face to face, e-mail and text and as I live nearby came and collected my bike. Cannot praise him enough and he is an extremely pleasant man to deal with. He has indepth knowledge and experience and is very patient and kind when explaining technical details to those coming from a different knowledge base’. Claire, Chipping Norton
