            Great British Bike Build (GBBB)

GBBB is passionate about cycling and believes the world would be a better place if more people cycled. From the time when cycling allowed the common man to travel further for work, families to go on holiday, liberation of women and freedom for children, the bicycle has played a big part in our lives. Now with the epidemic of the motor vehicle and growth in obesity, more and more of the population are looking towards the common bicycle for a solution.

My name is Stephen the founder of the Great British Bike Build (GBBB), the business started in 2014 buiding bikes for commuting, but my interest in British Cycling Heritage prevailed. In time past Great Britain were the largest manufacturers of cycles and components, part of this website is dedicated to looking backwards when life was simpler, the roads quieter and more people cycled.

Time moves on and I find myself teaching the next generation of cyclist, from learning to cycle to helping with road craft. Cycle training has now extended to adults who either are returning to cycling or nervous of traffic.

On this website you will find heritage cycles and accessories, stories and facts about cycling and how you can be part of the coming history of the bicycle.

Enjoy the journey!
