Fully Assembled Delivery from Dales Cycles
Dales Cycles is one of the only online cycle retailers in the Uk to offer a delivery option that trly reflects a 'fully built' bike arriving at your door. This premium delivery option is known as 'Ready to Ride' and costs £30* per bike.
'Ready to Ride' bikes come in a bespoke bike box, with a minimal packaging approach and all tools supplied, you really can be off and riding your new bike in less than a few minutes.
This unique premium delivery service eliminates the need for foam, bubble wrap and zip-ties too, so it’s also better for the planet. We recycle all this stuff, so where you can, please try and do the same. Apart from doing your bit for mother Earth, it will give you a warm, fuzzy feeling that you just can't buy!
Free Standard Delivery
In addition to our 'Ready to Ride' premium delivery service, we also offer a 'Free Standard Delivery' option on all bikes, and orders over £20*. Bikes ordered using the free service will require some basic setup on delivery. An easy to follow setup guide is provided with all bikes using the free delivery service.
Due to the extra weight of electric bikes, we are unable to ship these fully assembled. Instead, your bike will be built, configured and checked by our mechanics before being packed back into it's original box.
This method requires removing the front wheel, handlebars, pedals and seatpost, which will need to be reinstalled upon arrival.
To help with this we have a video guiding you through every step! However, if there's anything you'd like any help or advice, please contact us by calling 0141 332 2705 or by e-mailing [email protected]

Over the Christmas period our website and store will be closed on the dates found here. Orders can still be placed during this time and will be processed as quickly as possible when the doors open again.
Please note that in the case of items which need to be ordered in for you, our suppliers will be operating their own schedule of Christmas closures. If this would cause a delay to your order we will be in touch in inform you and help arrange the best solution.
*Highlands & Islands Surcharge
Sometimes, we may need to apply a shipping surcharge at checkout for remote locations. This will be calculated automatically and applied where appropriate.
For deliveries in the Highlands & Islands, our couriers tend to outsource the final leg of delivery, hence the increased cost.
We only ship to UK destinations.
