Better by Bike – Buying Second Hand

We’re asked often about where locally you can buy used bicycles. So as part of our Better by Bike series we’ve collated a list of places we’re aware of in no particular order. LCC have produced some advice on buying a second hand bicycle. Get in touch via our Contact Form if you know of somewhere in the borough that we’ve missed.
