In June 2013, we conducted an online survey about Sydney’s bike stores – and we discovered the good, the bad and the downright ugly!

Click here if you want to read some of the responses to the survey…. very interesting reading!

Based on your responses, Sydney’s top five bike stores for female cyclists are:

1st        Omafiets – 117B Addison Rd, Marrickville (on Agar St) 

(read about why they won)

2nd       Clarence St Cyclery, women’s store – 118 Clarence St, Sydney

Maurice, Ollie and Chris with their BikeGal.com certificate as best bike store for female cyclists – winners are grinners!

In second place is the city’s Clarence St women’s store which started in 2010 as Sydney’s first women’s specific cycling.

Third place went to Cheeky Transport in Newtown which opened in 1999 and encourages people to use bikes simply to get around.

Fourth place is shared by Liv/Giant, Sydney city’s newest entrant to women’s specific cycling retail, and the northshore’s cycling stalwart Turramurra Cyclery.
