Get to know us a bit better...
Founded in 1990 by husband and wife partnership John and Ruth Hargreaves. JD’s, as it is known locally, provides a friendly environment for local and national cyclists to seek information, access great products and have their bikes professionally maintained. Located in an old building, known as the Yard, off Nelson Road, Ilkley, JD’s has now grown from a small bicycle workshop into a dynamic destination bike store with 8 full and part-time members of staff. The premises were built as horse stables for Ilkley, and are now aptly used to provide a different sort of environmentally friendly transport.
The shop extends internally to some 3,000 sq.ft over 2 floors. Outside there is a large enclosed yard, which is used extensively by adults and youngsters to test ride their prospective new cycles. The Yard also provides washroom facilities for both male and female customers as well as a custom-built bike washstand and secure bike parking. These facilities are available for use at any time by local cyclists.
The ground floor of the shop has a welcoming sales and reception area, which is surrounded by brand displays from leading cycle suppliers designed to suit the many and varied customers who visit the shop on a regular basis.
Also located on the ground floor is a separate clothing room, with changing rooms and an impressive array of ladies and gents cycling apparel. Local children are well looked after too with a dedicated children’s bike section with learner bikes available free of charge for those struggling to learn how to ride a bike.
Occupying a prominent position on the first floor is the service centre, the heart of the business. This is where all new bikes are built and quality controlled by four full-time Cytech qualified cycle technicians. They ensure that the cycling public receives top quality service to a very high standard. A comprehensive repair service is offered to all customers with any make of bikes, irrespective of where they were purchased.
Adjoining the service centre is the cycle showroom, with separate areas for each area of specialisation, including mountain biking, road cycling, leisure and family riding. JD Cycles offer demonstrations bikes which are available for full and comprehensive test rides - at no charge.

Our most recent aquisition,,,,,,
Adam has been a customer and friend for many years. In Sept '11 he left his past life and came along to help us out. He then became full time at the beginning of Feb 2012 and, (we assure him!) has never looked back.....
He is usually found wherever his presance is most required. He can turn his hand to sales, service or back office, though some might say none perticullaly succesfully? However, his "brew making" skills are something worth retaining!
Adam's background has been predominantly MTB, however he is reveling in his new found opportunities to cycle and has been entering various sportifs, endurance and triathlon events.
Adam also has two Boarder Collies (Tinker & Millie) who occasionally visit the shop and can usually be found circling the sales counter, attempting to gain access to "Lilly"! They can also be regulaly found out on the trails mountain biking with us on a tuesday and thursday!
