The Sidcup Cycle Centre Story

Founded in the 19th Century, as Chaz F Hill, Sidcup Cycle Centre has been a part of South East London's history for 4 Generations. The Hill family started selling small radio parts & household appliances in a shop in New Cross until they decided diversify into the rapidly growing bicycle industry. By the third generation, Chaz F Hill had become Hill's Cycles -  selling legendary products such as the Penny Farthing before progressing into cutting edge all steel road bikes. The shop then moved to Well Hall Road, where we sold and repaired cycles from small kids trikes to high end road bike. 

Now in the fourth generation and the biggest premises yet with almost 200 years of expertise; Hill's Cycles, now Sidcup Cycle Centre, has remained in the Hill family and has continued to sell and service bikes as a family run business in Sidcup, Kent. Our team is the heart of our business and the face of our store & online experience, with high ambitions & even bigger ideas. We are always looking to hire new talent to join us in our growth and cycling adventure.
