Retail therapy: Velovixen store

January 15, 2015

Gone are the days when we women had to scrabble around at the back of an oily old bike shop to find a tiny rack of women’s cycling jerseys, first the internet opened up a world of exciting new shopping, and now even better, you can combine online browsing with real-life touching and trying on!

If you spend a fair amount of time on your bike then you will no-doubt have idled away a few hours on the Velovixen site (we certainly have!). But of the course the problem with the internet is that whilst that fabulous top you’re lusting after may look super lovely on the model, it’s very hard to imagine how it will look in real life – the colour can vary and certainly size can be an issue.


Of course mail-order is brilliant if you don’t mind sending stuff back, but if you really want to test the fit before you buy or if you want to see before you purchase a more expensive item then now you can. Velovixen have opened an actual store at their offices just outside Oxford in Wheatley.

The team are there most days from 9.30-18.00, but it’s best to give them a call on 01302249322 to confirm that you’re planning to visit. There’s plenty of parking for cars and bikes, and we’ve heard they also do a mean cup of coffee/tea to help with your visit…


Velovixen: Unit 28, Wheatley Business Centre, Old London Road, Wheatley, Oxford OX33 1XW.
