Our Story

The Ark Cycles builds on 35 years of heritage established by our forerunner Noah's Cycles. We are situated in a Grade 2 listed building on the outskirts of Stroud directly linked by canal paths. At The Ark, we pride ourselves on offering a personal service. We don't just sell and service bikes, we live and breathe bikes. 


Noah's was best known for its mountain bikes but always stocked a wide variety of bikes with something for everyone. We've built on this and have introduced a full range of electric bikes.

With the boom for two wheels showing no signs of slowing, we've been able to grow our business and continue to extend our range. With our fantastic brands and support from our suppliers, we have managed to stay on top of stock levels despite the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. We continue to carry a wide range of bikes.

We've also changed and improved our servicing. We now offer a new and improved range of service options. All services include a bike clean to ensure your beloved bicycle will leave our workshop looking its best.
