The Newcastle shop at The Journey
Pop into our shop at The Journey in the middle of Newcastle City Centre if you fancy a coffee and a pastry while you browse. This shop has limited space, which means we’re very selective about the bikes on show here. Our staff and volunteers specialise in servicing commuters’ and students’ bikes. They also do everything they can to get Deliveroo, Uber Eats and other professional riders back on the road as fast as possible in the event of a breakdown or puncture – many repairs can be done while-you-wait. You can call The Journey on 07842 095 778.
Every once in a while, we get given something really special, such as Campagnolo parts or carbon racing frames. When this happens, we usually put the items on eBay. That way, bike enthusiasts across the UK can support our cause and get the specialist parts or unique second hand bikes they want.
