Kensington Store

Welcome to Cycle Surgery Kensington, we are located on Kensington High Street a short walk from Kensington High St tube station. Better still ride your bike and bring it inside the store while you browse.

The store is managed by Ian and his team of experienced, friendly guys who live to cycle all kinds of bikes.

Customer Testimonials

"I really just wanted to say a Big Thank You to Ian, the Manager of the Kensington High Street Branch.

I must say I found buying my bike unbelievably stressful, but the kindness of the CycleSurgery staff and especially Ian was second to none. I think they are the most helpful people! I am now enjoying my lovely bike and am looking forward to our first service and many years of going back to the Kensington store for help and for getting all my bits and pieces.

I completely recommend the CycleSurgery to anyone thinking of getting a bike. They are just so kind to people who are not that much into cycling yet and so helpful in any aspect of purchasing a bike."

"Over the past two years I have found cycle surgery staff to be fantastic - enthusiastic, professional, knowledgeable, efficient and friendly. Today, Liam epitomized this and I left feeling so pleased that I walked into this particular store two years ago to get my first ever bike."
