About Rik's Bike Shed

A Top Wee Shop at the Head of the Trails

Based at Drumlanrig Castle Rik's Bike Shed has hire bikes for all the family. Great trails and a fantastic wee shop to help with whatever cycling need you might have.

Rik has been cycling for way too long and off-road for most of that.


Rik has designed and built many of the trails on the Drumlanrig Estate. These include the technical red and black routes and he has also worked on some of the best-loved bike trails around Scotland.

Here at Rik's Bike Shed

we are happy to offer advice to new and experienced riders about the the awesome trails here at Drumlanrig. We have  bikes to buy or we can offer a service or just to get you going again.

Guiding and coaching

With many years off-road riding (and racing) under his helmet Rik can help you have a great days riding. He will also offer  some helpful and fun coaching sessions to help you ride with more fun and control and speed.

We're happy to get your tot onto pedals and have plenty of patience for older folks who'd like to learn.

Bike Sales

Rik’s Bike Shed has a great selection of bikes, parts and accessories, along with cycling equipment and clothing for men, women and children. We stock Shimano and Sram drivetrain and brake spares along with a huge range of good quality and budget parts to upgrade or repair your trusty steed.

If you’re looking for a new bike, we are happy to help and advise. We stock Frog kids bikes and Merida and Diamond Back and frame sets from Stanton and Sanderson.

We always have second-hand bikes from the hire fleet, new bikes in stock or we can order a new bike to suit your needs.

Bike Repairs and Servicing

We run a well-equipped workshop at Rik’s Bike Shed, staffed by Cytec qualified bike mechanics who can get you back on (or off!) the road.

In addition to repairs, if your bike is in need of a little TLC, then Rik’s Bike Shed offers bronze, silver or gold service packages to get your trusty or rusty steed pedalling like new again.

We’ll fix any bike; road, MTB, BMX, or utility; from fixing a puncture to building you a custom wheel, we’re happy to help.

We can often get your bike fixed while you get a brew at the Castle Tea Room.
