There is a well-equipped workshop at Rik’s Bike Shed, staffed by Cytec approved bike mechanics who can get you back on (or off!) the road. In addition to repairs, if your bike is in need of a little TLC, then Rik’s Bike Shed offers bronze, silver or gold service packages to get your trusty steed like new again. We can also arrange re-sprays. Whatever your cycling concern, we’re here to help and advise.

Rik’s Bike Shed has a selection of parts and accessories, along with cycling equipment and clothing for men, women and children. We stock a range of funky helmets both kids and adult sizes – great souvenirs to take home from Drumlanrig. You can also fuel up on the energy bars and cold drinks in stock.

If you’re looking for a new bike, we are happy to help and advise. We usually have second-hand bikes from the hire fleet or we can order a new bike to suit your needs.


We also do personalised Gift Vouchers! Contact us directly for more information…

World Class Bike Trails

Rik has been cycling for 35+ years, and building trails for most of them. He has designed and built many of the trails on Drumlanrig estate, including the technical red and black routes. He has also worked on some of the best-loved bike trails and skills parks around Scotland including; Comrie Croft near Crieff, Mabie forest, Forest of Ae and more! Staff at the Bike Shed are happy to offer advice to new and experienced riders. We can help you find the best bikes and routes for you, and provide you with maps to make sure you really enjoy your experience here at Drumlanrig.

After years of failing to teach our 9 year old son how to ride his bike, Rik got him from a stride bike to mountain biking on the tracks in 1 hour!! An absolute star ⭐️⭐️ There was no pressure and lots of fun games involved to build confidence. Made our holiday, thanks Rik
