This is extraordinary. You can actually choose a route to avoid unnecessary hills. Excellent for the part-time cyclist!

Bicycle Shops or Bicycle Accessories Outlets or Cycle Repairers

Cycle King Luton

56-66 Dunstable Rd, Luton LU1 1EH, UK – 01582 723333

I only popped in with a query about my daughters scooter, and they managed to fix it completely without a grumble of cost. They were very polite and just insanely fast to help. I will definitely be visiting the store soon to purchase my daughters first bike.

After calling up and speaking with the knowledgeable service department I brought my bicycle into the store. Despite excellent parts and service charges my bike was beyond economical repair so they helped me choose a new one that fit my requirements and price range. I was able to ride it out of the store with a free service in 6 weeks to allow for adjustments after bedding in. I was able to buy accessories I wanted as well. The staff were polite and I felt that they understood my requirements perfectly. The store is large with a huge selection of bicycles, accessories and related items. The enterence is flat for wheelchair entry and if you park in Sainsbury's next door (2 hours free) you could use a wheelchair all the way to the store. Highly recommended

My Bike Shop

3 Midland Rd, Luton LU2 0HR, UK – 01582 722644

Super nice guy who knows his bikes. My 25 yr old bike came out as if it had never been ridden. Keen price too, compared to the big store 5 mins away.

Bloomfield Cycles

21 Bloomfield Ave, Luton LU2 0PT, UK – 01582 454477

The service is outstanding. Really top guy. always helpful and honest advise. If anyone has any issues with their cycle ask Paul to have a look at it. If you need a service or bike parts. He will tell you if its needed. He's not one of those who will try and make money off you. Haven't come across an honest bike shop in a very long time. They do have some great bikes at great prices, also accessories. So its worth your while to check them out before making purchase elsewhere.

No job too big or small and all at a reasonable price.

Cycle Hire

Halfords

Luton Retail Park, Kimpton Rd, Luton LU2 0SX, UK – 01582 422525

Has some really helpful staff and some rude staff. I asked Ryan, who works on front desk, about car speakers because I don't know anything about them and needed some help. When I asked him which ones he recommends for my needs he kept saying it was my choice. I know it was my choice but I don't know anything about them so was asking for help. He then said the middle range ones and said it has a matching sub. It really doesn't need to match, it needs to be good. I came back to speak to the car electronics guy, Barry, who was so helpful and told me everything I needed to know. He gave me really useful advice and I can't thank him enough. I just wish Ryan had admitted to not knowing about speakers in the first place and got Barry to speak to me instead of pretending to know about speakers and just being rude to me. He just seemed to not care.

overpriced but all in one place, need mechanic for my bike but lack of knowledge of staff convince me to buy just parts

Sixt Car Hire Luton City Centre

24-34, Crawley Rd, Luton LU1 1HZ, UK – 0844 499 3399

Friendly staff, easy and very quick service

The best rental firm in Luton thus far.... I have rented from all but one. But I am sticking with Sixt. They are outstanding and there vehicles are always of prestine, current, up-to-date condition. Well Done Mr Green and the team.

Sixt Car Hire Luton Airport

Prudence Place, Proctor Way, Luton LU2 9PE, UK – 0844 499 3399

Excellent customer service at this branch. We have been offered an upgrade and extras at a very good price at counter although our booking was made online well ahead. Very fast service, short waiting times for the pick up, the return and the shuttle service to the airport. Local staff at this branch responded very well and satisfied my claim for a small correction in price that was not well explained (or well perceived by me) when booking. Highly recommended.

Excellent rental experience. Very convenient as they will promptly pick you up from the terminal drop off point to take you to their station beside the airport. Smooth check-in as staff are polite and understanding. Been given a free upgrade to a superior compact class Seat Leon which was more or less new with just 1250 miles on the odometer.Check out was also very smooth with quick inspection and fast deposit refund. Would like to personally thank Ahmed and Adam for their stellar service. Will definitely rent again from Sixt Luton if i'm ever there.
