It's a healthy activity cycling. An efficient and accessible way to get around, it offers a unique freedom that other means of transport just can't match. At Ridgeback we continue to focus on all things cycling, offering and wide and varied range of bikes. Whether it's an early morning solo commute to work, or a casual weekend ride with family and friends, Ridgeback has it covered.
" Ridgeback
A new era
Ever since we introduced the first mountain bike into the UK back in 1983, Ridgeback has been at the forefront of contemporary bicycle design with best selling bikes in every category.

1990 saw the launch of the Ridgeback Roxy, an early forerunner of today's Rapide series - the benchmark by which all other commuter bikes are measured.

Ridgeback's Urban series became another trend setter. In 1998 these slick tyred, street mountain bikes were fun to ride and provided a serious alternative to traditional commuting bikes. They continue today as the Switch series. In 2001 we created Genesis - an entirely new genre of ultra fast commuter sports bikes that really set the market on fire. GENESIS is now a brand in its own right.

More recently in 2006 we launched Dual Track. A robust all rounder with 29"" wheels that can cruise confidently over difficult terrain it also makes a versatile urban commuter.

2007 - Since the introduction of the first Ridgeback 25 years ago, the influence of American brands has tended to eclipse that of home grown machines. However in terms of today's bikes and riding style it's clear that 'UK' design is back in a big way. "
