About us

County Cycles is an independent bike shop in Cross Hands, Carmarthen, run by people who have grown up riding bikes. Whether we race, train, commute, or ride just for fun, we’ve got the passion for bikes in our veins.

We are a one-off local bike sales and repair shop dedicated to our local customer base and striving to deliver world-class bike equipment across South Wales. Our customers keep coming back to upgrade, purchase bike accessories and clothing or join our bike events because County Cycles has such a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, not forgetting the affordable prices!

 
 
What makes us so good?

We provide custom building of bikes and wheels and have the care and expertise to work with you to get your bike running as you’d expect. We do professional bike servicing and bike fitting, enabling you to ride away on a bike that will make you achieve your maximum potential.

We also love to gloat about our new in-store coffee shop, making your trip to County Cycles in South Wales a uniquely social experience.
