Condor Cycles supports ‘cycling for newborns’
Condor Cycles is a family business we first opened our doors at 90 Grays Inn Road, London in 1948 and we remain a family business today, cycling to improve the survival of newborn infants is something we identify with. We supported the fundraising efforts of a number of the British cyclists that took part in the Cycle a Difference epic ride across Vietnam in May 2013. The determination of the cyclists who took part in this grueling cycling challenge was impressive and we are proud to supply a bicycle for the British Ambassador to ride in the Cycle a Difference Asian Business Challenge Ride in March 2014.
At Condor the aim is to provide everything that bicycle ownership entails, from advice, bike fitting, components and clothing, to repairing a puncture on a Monday morning.
For over sixty years Condor Cycles of London has been building bicycles specific to customers needs. Our success over the last sixty years has been dependent on being aware of current and future technologies. In 1948 the majority of race bikes were bespoke but in today’s market place, a bespoke bicycle is a rarity. At Condor, it is what we have done every day for sixty years. From competitive to fitness rider, commuter, new or returning cyclist, the right bike opens up a world on two wheels.
Condor bicycles have been ridden to World Championship gold medals, ridden in the Tour de France, and have been the choice of many figures in the public limelight, ranging from judges to rock stars. Few brands can claim to have their bikes ridden by cycling household names including Tom Simpson and Bradley Wiggins.
