Cycleways was founded by Matt Bailey in 2006. Having grown up in rural Oz riding with his mates and working in a bike shop, Matt’s passion for the sport was hardwired from a young age. When life’s adventures landed him in Ōtautahi, Matt saw that there was a lack of service-oriented bike shops and decided to do something about it.
And so Cycleways was born. Initially a workshop with just a smattering of retail, Matt put in the hard yakka – fixing bikes into the wee hours, solving issues and helping people find their perfect ride. Over time Cycleways has grown. Today we have more staff and a wider offering – but our original commitment to service remains as strong as ever.
Why Service Matters
Without service, it’s just a transaction.
At Cycleways, we care about every customer. Whether you’re a pro rider, weekend warrior or mum or dad looking for a decent kids’ bike, we ask questions, listen to your answers, and offer genuinely helpful advice. We want you to ride out of here stoked with your purchase and confident it’s the right choice for you.
A well-serviced bike will protect you.
Bikes are increasingly complicated beasts. From suspension and brakes to electrical issues, if things go wrong on the road or trail, the outcome can be gnarly. Our trained mechanics are experts at solving issues and fine tuning bikes to achieve optimum performance. We care for every bike that comes in as if we were the ones riding it out the door.
Better service means better quality too.
Everything we sell at Cycleways we believe in, it’s as simple as that. Because we hand pick and personally test all our brands and products, we wholeheartedly stand by everything we sell and offer outstanding aftersales support too. For amazing bikes and the best gear, come see what we have in store and online.
