Professional bike fitting isn't only for the elite racer
All regular cyclists enjoy riding their bike. Sometimes this enjoyment can be compromised by niggles such as saddle sores; knee, neck and back pain; or an inability to improve their performance beyond a particular personal best. Many cyclists are forever tinkering with their position – looking for that elusive perfect posture, but unable to pinpoint why they “just don’t feel quite right”. Interested in increasing your efficiency, performance and comfort while at the same time reduce the chance of injury, read on!

Selle Italia’s idmatch system to match you to the perfect saddle
Meet at the shop. Double espressos. Tubes and gels. Ride your heart out. Post ride recovery smoothie and lunch. Sound good? We agree. As cyclists, we loved the idea of a café in a bike shop so much that we made it a reality at Maison Du Vélo.
So, why not take a seat, and be tempted by our fabulous wholesome food and drink? We create a different menu every day, and source as much as possible locally. Our breads are baked a few miles away at a great little bakery in Nutfield, and we have cakes homemade by Carol two streets away, and even our honey is sourced from a couple of local beehives.
Our menu changes daily so we can’t list it here, but expect to find such delights as toasted waffles with maple syrup and blueberries, chunky toasted sandwiches rammed with great fillings, and a selection of ludicrously tasty homemade cakes and pastries. Wash it all down with our wonderful coffee crafted by our expert barista, and you will see why we are already gaining a high reputation in Reigate.
