With small business Saturday coming up this weekend, we have highlighted some of the best local cycling businesses here in Northern Ireland. The popularity of Amazon and online shopping means it can be easy to overlook local business, but often some of the most innovative and exciting products are being created right at your doorstep. If you’re on the lookout for cycling gear, be sure to check out these businesses and support local!

Big Loop Bikes

Big Loop Bikes is a bike refurbishment social enterprise that has been running since 2017. Big Loop collects unused and unwanted bikes from the local community, and then recycles and refurbishes them for sale at pop up shops. They are now operating out of Queen’s University from Tuesday to Friday, and offer an extensive list of bike repairs and services. Truly a brilliant idea and well worth checking out.

Donard Bikes

Based in Strangford Lough, Donard Bikes produce a wide variety of custom bikes -  ranging from road bikes to gravel bikes - all of which are designed, manufactured, painted and assembled by hand out of their workshop. A serious amount of craft, engineering and know-how goes into each one of these handmade bikes. The image below features a TIG welded stainless steel custom frame using 3D printed dropouts. It uses "931" stainless steel, and is now available to use in custom bike orders.
