CYCLES IN THE SHED LOOK LIKE BIG BUSINESS

All Terrain Cycles are moving into Shed 48 in the yard directly in front of Salts Mill and hope to be ready for opening in time for the Easter weekend.

Owner Tony Booth tells me that they will offer a full range of road, mountain, ladies' and children's bikes, and a full range of clothing and accessories. They are a family based firm and pride themselves on good stock and service. They cater for all tastes and pockets, with bikes ranging from £200 upwards; bespoke and custom builds being in excess of £5000. Repairs and wheel building services are available.
All Terrain Cycles is a local business. It started life in 1907 as Riley Brothers Cycles, based in Crosshills near Keighley. The founder passed it on to his son, Ralph Riley, who ran it as a local repair shop until fourteen years ago. It was then taken over by Dereck and Simon Green until Tony purchased it in 1996. He continued trading as Riley Bros for eighteen months before adopting the present name and expanding the business with widespread advertising. Now, with a website and mail order, sales are international.
Tony says that he is very excited about moving into Salts Mill and hopes that the refurbished building will be a centre of excellence for cycling in the UK.

Shed 48 is the building close to the base of the chimney and provides almost ten thousand square feet of potential retail space. Its history will be featured soon in the Sentinel.
