Islabikes started back in 2006, when it was based in the corner of a cowshed. It grew into larger premises, and has recently grown again, into what might well be mistaken for a really big cowshed. Hannah went to chew the cud with some of the staff that work there in order to find out what they’re doing that needs so much space.
I’m always surprised when I hear of parents saying ‘I’d never heard of Islabikes’. But if you head to any bike shop, you’re not going to see them on display, as they’re only available directly from the Shropshire HQ, or second (or third, or fourth, or fifth…) hand. Such is the popularity and longevity of their children’s bikes that there is a Facebook Group specifically for the buying and selling of pre loved models.
