About RideOn


Ride-On was founded back in 1995, in an era when suspension cost its weight in gold and disc brakes on mountain bikes were ‘unnecessary’! This opinion wasn’t shared by RideOn owner Craig Robertson, who knew from his background in motorbikes that suspension and disc brakes were to be at the forefront of modern mountain biking. Craig’s experience doesn’t end there - he was northern area BMX champion ‘back in the day’ as well as being a regular on national downhill race podiums. This interest in competitive mountain biking prompted Craig to start the Ride-On race team, attending local and national downhill races, and supporting up and coming riders such as Nigel Page. On the race scene, Ride-On’s reputation grew by providing friendly advice, spares and mechanical assistance. When the UK race scene was devastated by the foot and mouth outbreak, RideOn continued to promote mountain biking by setting up local race events and evening rides on authorised trails. It is this commitment to the sport and to our customers that has made Ride-On stand out from other bike shops.
