Our great bike shop...We can be found in the historic old town of Hemel Hempstead, in the old High Street. See map for directions and About Us to find out what the shop looks like when you get here! We are a Shimano Service Centre which means our workshop is more professional and more comprehensive than most. Full details on the workshop page..
The staff are all cyclists (of varying descriptions!), cycling either to get to work, for fun or competitively.
HISTORY (Hemel Hempstead)The shop has been established as Leisure Wheels in Hemel Hempstead since June 1985. Prior to that the shop premises were occupied for 10 years by Moores Cycles-part of a chain of cycle shops across the home counties region. Going further back it was Howards Motors for 20 years (motorbikes and bikes) and earlier still it existed as a car showroom. Evidence of this past can be seen in our newly opened cellar area where a monster sized RSJ still props up the floor.
The shop is a listed building situated in the old town of Hemel Hempstead. The building was constructed c.1730
