Our Story

Bikes make us smile, and so does a red sky at night with its promise of better weather ahead…..Red sky at night, biker’s delight!

At RedSky Bikes, we believe in the power of cycling to clear your mind and feed your soul. Whether you’re hurtling down Sutton Bank or taking a leisurely ride through the Dales, there’s no better place to be than on two wheels in the great outdoors.

We’re a family owned business bringing high-quality, trustworthy bike parts and products, an expert team and five-star customer service to North Yorkshire to meet the needs of our community. Young to old, male to female, bright-eyed beginner to seasoned pro, mountain bikers, gravel riders, e-bikers, and road cyclists; RedSky Bikes is here to encourage you to find time to ride.

Fuelled by a genuine passion for good old-fashioned customer service and all things bikes, we’re committed to going the extra mile for our customers. We don’t believe in ‘one size fits all’. We give every customer their own individual journey to find what’s right for them and their next adventure.

Where will your next adventure take you?

Our Location

RedSky Bikes is a large retail unit in the centre of the new Sowerby Gateway development on the outskirts of Thirsk, North Yorkshire. With a state-of-the-art Park Tool workshop and relaxed, friendly shop floor, we’re the perfect destination for shopping and servicing alike.

We’re lucky to be located next to the Sowerby Sports Village, boasting a 1km fitness trail designed for walking, running and cycling as well as a skate park. We’re also right in between the North York Moors and Yorkshire Dales, which are absolute playgrounds for outdoor enthusiasts.
