Since the 1920's the family business known then as Burke Bros has been active in the Wellington bicycle trade. In those days we sold famous brands such as Rudge, Raleigh, Humber, Claude Butler, Empire and Chase.
Now more than 80 years on, seeing many changes along the way, the Burke family still own and operate Wellington's premier bicycle store. Burkes Cycles was also presented with the Best Bike Shop award in 1999 as judged by the Bicycle Industry Association of New Zealand.
In late 1998 we went through a major expansion to create the store we now operate from. We now have 4000sqr ft of modern retail and workshop space. This has enabled us to offer one of the largest inventory of bikes and accessories in Wellington. Our vast resources also allow us to obtain almost anything for your cycling needs.
The team at Burkes Cycles works hard to be your first choice for bicycles, clothing and accessories. Our staff are passionate about cycling and use the equipment we sell so you can be better informed when it comes to making a buying decision.
Our Bike Technicians, in their fully equipped workshop, can service most bicycles from a scooter for a 3 year old to high-end road or mountain bikes. Suspension fork and shock services, custom wheel builds, custom bike builds and general services are some of the tasks performed by our highly skilled team of Shimano certified technicians.
Burkes Cycles Online, our e-commerce store, also gives you the added convenience of connecting with us even after regular store hours. Shop at your leisure or compare products in the comfort of your own home or office. If the item you are after is not listed then send us an email and, if available, we will provide a quote and supply if required.
Hope to see you in person in our store sometime soon..
