  • Switch to Electric!

    The Bike Place at Kielder goes Electric

    haibike-x-duro-fsWe have just taken delivery of our Haibike X Duro FS electric Demo Bike. Powered by a 300W Bosch motor this beauty makes hill climbing so much easier. With 120mm of travel controlled by Rock Shocks up front and Fox CDT out back and hydraulic disc brakes this is a proper trail bike which just happens to have 4 settings of motorized assistance. I'm sure this is the future for a lot of folk - why not give it a try.


    raleigh-motusWe now have two Raleigh Motus electric hybrid bikes (Gents and Ladies frames) available for general hire!! They both have a  10 speed transmission, hydraulic rim brakes and four power modes.  Both Gents and Ladies models have a 400W Bosch motor and are capable of up to 120 miles on a charge. These brand new models with the latest technology will also be available to buy at £2000, so why not try before you buy with one of our hire models (4hrs for £30 or full day is £40). Hire cost refundable if purchase within 3 months. If you have a "Friends of Kielder" membership you can try a 2hr "taster" session for just £20!

    Everyone who has tried these bikes has realised what a game changer the electrical assistance is.

  • China Light Boy

    Brilliant new lights just arrived !!

    We have formed a good working relationship with one of the better LED cycle light manufacturers in China, and now have in stock two of their latest lamps.

    SG-N2200Firstly, the SG-N2200. This twin bodied lamp uses two of the latest L2 U2 LED's and puts out an amazing 2200 lumens, with four power settings (10%, 40%, 70% and 100%). It features a separate handlebar switch for easy operation while cycling and the back of the lamp has 3 power indicators to show current battery power level (100%, 50%, 10%), so you will not suddenly be pitched into total darkness!. The lamp is the first to have a liquid coolant within the lamp body and is powered by a 6 cell 6600mAh 8.4V lithium ion battery enclosed in a waterproof shell. Included in the presentation box are handlebar mounts (two sizes), a helmet mount, battery pouch with straps, a UK charger and full instructions.  The lamp unit comes with a 12 month warranty and measures less than 6cm square.

    A lot of light for only £99.

    SG-ThumbThen we have the SG-Thumb, which as the name suggests is a tiny lamp weighing only 64grms!! Perfect for handlebar or helmet mounting this little baby still puts out 1000 lumens. This is undoubtedly the most powerful light for it's size I have ever seen! With four power modes (as above) and a 2 cell battery pack in a neoprene waterproof cover this lamp beats the traditional competition hands down. Included in a nice gift box are a battery pouch with straps, UK charger, two different size O rings for handlebar mounting, a helmet mount and full instructions. Again the lamp unit is covered by a 12 month warranty.

    Price for this little beauty is £55.

  • Haglöfs is here!!

    The Bike Place takes on this top end Swedish clothing brand.

    haglofs-logo Using the latest technical fabrics coupled with really well thought out design ideas results in some amazing pieces of clothing. Really lightweight and built to last, no wonder the Haglofs mantra is  "buy expensive clothing and save money" - think about it.

    We have some organic cotton Apex Tees (made in Portugal) which have a fit and feel way beyond the average sweat shop item - £30 well spent I say.

    Or for those wetter rides how about a LIM Proof Jacket with hood. Made from recycled materials, this lightweight packable jacket is constructed from a waterproof/breathable 2.5 layer PROOF fabric with a Hydrostatic head of > 10,000mm.

    The Shield Jacket is a lightweight windshell made from 100% recycled polyester. In stock in Ladies or Gents and check out those vibrant colours!

    The last item I will pick out from the range is the Ardent Shorts. These are MTB specific and you really need to try a pair on to appreciate the fit and feel. I did this and was amazed how much better they felt than the well known Scottish brand of shorts I usually wear. We now have a Demo pair, so if you come along with your own liner short you can try these and you will see why they are worth £125!! We have Medium, Large and XL in stock. Call 1st to check if the Demo pair is available at the Kielder Cycle Centre.

    END OF SEASON SALE!! - To make way for new stock arriving next year, we are offering 25% OFF our current Haglofs stock!!

    An ideal excuse for a Christmas present to self perhaps?

  • Kielder Trail News

    Listing the latest trail information for riders.

    The Bloody Bush trail is closed until further notice due to lots of trees blown down over the trail. The scale of the damage will need machinery to clear, so could be a little while before this is open again. Please observe the warning signs.

    The whole of the Up and Over Black section off the Deadwater trail is now open! A massive restructuring of the lower section down Forrest's Dive is now complete. The boys from NDH along with the contractors have done a fantastic job constructing new features to make this section into our signature downhill Black run. The last section down to the Forest Drive is still off limits while felling work takes place. When harvesting is finished, this section will also be revamped as part of this exciting new downhill trail.

     Deadwater Trail. The whole Kersey Cleugh/3 Dog climb area has been changed around following felling operations. We now have a new climb from the bottom road to join 3 Dog climb, then via Saved by the Bell the Kersey Cleugh section now runs in the reverse direction giving this trail a whole new feel. At the end of this you can either cross over on Jimmy's Hill and return to Kielder, or turn left and head up the fire road where you have a choice!! The top part of 3 Dog climb, is now a very swoopy descent (3 Dog Descent), taking you back to Saved by the Bell and then along Kersey Cleugh again, creating a loop that can be sessioned. To finish off take the right hand fire road up to the start of Into the Valley as before. Difficult to explain without a map, but if in doubt, call in to our Kielder Cycle Centre for the full SP.

    We are busy revamping other trails in the Kielder network, laying down a better surface, and improving existing features.  Anyone who fancies helping with these projects should register their interest on the News section at www.kieldertrailreavers.co.uk or call 01434 250457.

    Osprey Chick trail now open!! A nice extra section of flowing singletrack has been added to the Osprey Short (now Chick) trail. This is also signed from the Lakeside Way, so can be added as a nice finish to the Osprey (Long) trail.

    Lonesome Pine - the second section of hand built trail at Capon Hassock is now connected to CH 1 - to get involved in further building visit the trail build section on www.kieldertrailreavers.co.uk

    Woodstock - IS NOW SAVED!!! 180 gripper plates have been installed by the KTR team, one on each board. It now rides like a dream - wet or dry. Apart from a small contribution from FC, this improvement was funded by KTR from monies raised from our Marathon Series. Thanks to all who have contributed over the years.
