Heales is more than just a bike shop – it’s a place to live and breathe bikes.

Since 1936

About Heales Cycles

We’re crazy about bikes and we cater for all customers – from commuters and families to bike nuts like us.

Want to buy a bike? Great. We provide a knowledgeable, friendly, specialist service, stocking carefully selected boutique brands, hand-picked to serve the needs of our customers.

Want to get your bike fixed or serviced? Even better. Our expert mechanics take pride in the fact that they can fix any bike. Attention to detail is our thing – you won’t get this level of customer service online or from some big chain.

Where we’re based

We love where we are based. Epping Forest is on our doorstep – it’s like being on the edge of our very own trail centre, offering instant access to cross country rides and informing the brands and products we carry. But it’s not all off-road. We’re on the edge of London too, so we also specialise in urban cycling products for commuters looking for sustainable methods of transport.

Heales Cycles was established way back in 1936, and the shop remains independently owned and locally run to this day. We support and are supported by our local authority, Waltham Forest, and The Corporation of London, which owns Epping Forest. We’re community focused and engage with local schools and businesses.

We eat, sleep and drink bikes. Plus, we get to sell and fix them, too.

We are a highly rated established local bike shop in Highams Park, East London.

Meet Heales!

Co-owner James is a reformed BMX racer and dirt jumper. What he doesn’t know about bikes isn’t worth bothering with. James will happily ride anything with pedals and is running out of space for his ever-expanding bike collection.

Born with a spanner in his hand (not literally), Mike is an ace mechanic with more than 15 years’ experience and is highly knowledgeable about all types of bikes. When he’s not up to his eyeballs in bike bits, Mike loves downhill racing and real ale (but not necessarily at the same time).Mike, THE MECHANIC
