It’s more than just a bike shop, it’s a total cycling experience, locally owned and operated by people passionate about bikes, health and family.
Velo Ronny’s was established in 2013, the lifelong dream of Ron (the Cycling guru of New Zealand) and Dorothy Cheatley.
Velo Ronny’s stocks everything from road bikes, MTB bikes, town bikes, electric bikes, track bikes and kids bikes to accessories, clothing, wheels, tyres and so much more.
Our specialist services include a full Shimano and Bosch certified workshop and mechanics, Precision Bike Fit and Trek’s Project One custom bike programme. And don’t forget our online store where we can service more cyclists than ever.
