About Ribble Bikes
Named after the valley in which they are based, Ribble is a British institution. The company is located in Preston, Lancashire, and has a long history of producing quality bikes.
It began with road bikes, a niche driven by ever changing technology. But now the company produces a range of cycles to suit every style of riding, and most pockets. That means the super-light road bikes have been joined by sturdy mountain bikes, along with comfortable bikes aimed at more leisurely riders.
Anyone wanting to take up the ever popular sport of cycling, or upgrade their bike, can get hold of a bike carrying a traditional British marque.
Cycling is widely recognised as one of the best forms of exercise there is. It brings all the anaerobic benefits while, unlike running, putting very little stress on the joints. But, whether you're popping to the shops, enduring the daily commute or heading off-road for a weekend's adventure, it pays to have the right equipment.
Ribble's range of frame materials and designs, as well as different group sets, mean the company is succeeding in suiting most needs. Plus the British-made tag often means bikes have been lovingly cared-for.
It's unusual for a small company to be able to compete in such a tough market. However, Ribble does it very successfully, and buying a Ribble bike still means you'll be supporting a smaller and local brand against the larger giants of the industry.
