Cycle Transfer began in 2009 and was the first business to transfer bikes fully assembled. Bike set-up is not interfered with in any way. No need to remove wheels, pedals or adjust saddle height. Bikes are collected from an athlete’s nominated address (usually their home) and transported ‘fully assembled’ to and from their event accommodation.

John, who has been involved with Cycle Transfer since it began, has an excellent understanding of the bike transport needs of triathletes, duathletes and cyclo sportive cyclists. This is based on his experience competing in triathlons (7 Ironman 140.6 events – Australia, South Africa, United States and Europe), marathons and multi-day endurance cycling events (John O’Groats to Land’s End and London to Cannes).

At Cycle Transfer we make every effort to be as flexible and adaptable as possible in meeting the needs of our clients. For additional reassurance and  peace of mind it is worth noting that, since the business began in 2009, we have transported thousands of bikes to events throughout Europe and we have never had to make an insurance claim for loss or damage to our clients’ property.
