ROOTS CYCLES LTD
Welcome to Roots!
We are an independent, family-run, bicycle shop offering a variety of services to our valued customers. We're true to our roots of family, the outdoors, community and craftsmanship. Passionate about cycling, we provide an individually tailored approach to each and every one of our customers to maximise their cycling experience. We're proud to be an authorised Trek and Marin retailer and able to offer their range of products and services.
A note about COVID-19
We'd like to clarify how we're operating the shop at the moment to keep everyone safe and healthy and to stay in line with the current government advice:
- We're open by appointment only (although we will always make time to fix punctures and help anyone mid-ride). This allows us to control how many customers are in the shop at any one time and prevents our customers from having to queue outside for lengthy periods. Please call Mrs Roots on 01786 842 080 or email to book your appointment.
- Priority bookings are available for our fantastic key workers.
- We have a sanitising station as you enter the shop and encourage customers to sanitise their hands as they enter.
- The layout in the shop allows us to keep a 2-metre distance from our customers.
- We would ask our customers to pay by contactless whenever possible.
- Feel free to browse the stock but please try not to touch unless you intend to buy.
- Please wear a face covering when in the shop, unless you are exempt from wearing one.
Thanks to everyone for your continued support and patience
Please contact us to discuss your requirements and book your appointment.

Roots Cycles works hard to provide all our customers with excellent services at the best price possible. When you need a professional solution, trust us to get to the root of the problem.
Please take a look below to learn more.
Repairs, services and much more
Services start from as little as £25 and are a sure way to put your mind at ease that your bike is safe and its performance is optimised.
We offer a full assessment (free of charge) to help us gauge how much servicing your bike requires. We then order any parts that will be needed and carry out the work at an agreed time and to your budget and needs.
We are Velotech and Bosch qualified.
Bikes and accessories
We're proud to offer our customers Trek and Marin bikes. We've loved Trek bikes for a long time, for their craftsmanship and innovation as well as their unparalleled customer service. Martin's first mountain bike was a Marin which sparked a life-long love of the brand and their shredding machines.
We stock a range of road, mountain, cyclocross, gravel, hybrid, electric and children's bikes. We also have a selection of helmets, accessories, parts and nutrition products on offer.
We have partnered with Klarna to bring you new ways to pay at checkout. It’s a safe and simple way to get the stuff you want, when you want it
Builds, repairs, modifications
Wheel building is something we are especially proud of at Roots Cycles. We build our wheels to a very high standard, taking care to meet the manufacturers specifications to the smallest of details.
Every wheel we build is stress tested and left to settle overnight to ensure your wheels will endure everything you might expect to throw at them.
For a bike as individual as you are
Discuss your specifications with us, we can assist with sourcing parts and building a bike to meet your specific needs and tastes (pink bar tape optional!).
You can even have all the parts sent to us and have your dream bike built whilst your at work.
Serviced and safe
With our own van and gazebo, Roots Cycles can work flexibly to meet your needs. If that's a fleet of bicycles, no problem, call us to talk through your requirements.
All you need to do is ask!
We offer many services, including:
- Insurance assessments
- Frame alignment checks
- Frame preparation
- Bearing work
- Hydraulic brake bleeding
- Suspension servicing
- Dropper seat post servicing
- Tubeless tyre set-up/conversion
Are you sitting comfortably?
To make the most of your muscles and protect your posture, you need our bike fit service.
Trek Precision Fit technology is used to ensure your riding position is optimised and your bike is set up specifically to your measurements.
This can make all the difference to the power you are able to put through your bike and to your comfort whilst your riding.
Every day's a school day
We love encouraging children and young adults to get cycling. We are happy to provide Dr Bike services to schools during BikeAbility and volunteer for BikeAbility instruction.
Roots is happy to offer FREE bike maintenance sessions to Duke of Edinburgh Award pupils, Brownies, Guides, Cubs etc.
We offer fleet maintenance services to schools to ensure that their pupils always have access to safe bikes.
Come in and say hello
Our shop is in Doune, famous for its pistols, Monty Python, Outlander and now Roots!
By car, the best way to find us is to turn down King Street (next to the Church on the High Street) and take the right fork of the road. If you're coming from the cycle path, cycle to the end of Moray Park and turn left. We're just around the corner, on the right-hand-side of Queen Street in the wooden building.
We hope to see you soon!
