Volcanic Ash Cloud!

Customers in Scotland and the North of England can expect delays to their orders because of the disruption to flights by the ash cloud from Grimsvotn – an erupting volcano in Iceland – we will try and keep you all informed. Some of Biketart’s main suppliers are also based in Scotland so please bear with us as some products may take longer to get to us too! Please bear in mind last year’s disruption had a knock on effect of a couple of weeks….lets hope this time will be better!

Pilgrims Cycle Challenge 2011

Pilgrims Cycle Challenge 2011 This year’s Cycle Challenge was in part sponsored by Biketart and we provided a place to stop and refresh on the 75 and 47.5 mile routes that came through Barham. We had an amazing day and reckon we had 300 riders for tea & cake – served admirably by Ian & Cal; Colin, Dave & Griz sorted a multitude of bike issues that arose on the day and Will took these amazing snaps! Looking forwards to doing it all again next year 🙂

New Website

We’ve updated and re-launched the website. The new site offers a better shopping experience for users and offers us greater control behind-the-scenes in order processing. As part of our planned growth for the year ahead, we’ve started adding some new products to the site from other suppliers. We’ll only be stocking quality parts that offer outstanding performance and design.

POC gear flying out the door!

POC is proving a hit with riders and selling well. We’re getting some great feedback:    It’s so popular some products are already running low or sold out with the distributor. Anything we don’t have in-stock ready to ship is marked as ‘out of stock’. Everything else is in stock and ready to send. Drop us an email if you’d like to know dates for new stock landing on anything sold out.
