Our priority is to get anyone and everyone bike riding whether through sales, repairs, hire or advice. We're not a formal, pristine, non-approachable type of business that is solely interested in making money.

  • Pre 2016

    Our Humble Beginnings

    Lance's obsession and love of riding and racing bikes has never faded since the first time he jumped on a bike. All friends generally link Lance to some form of biking whether pedal bikes or motorbikes.

    Our honeymoon was even a road trip in a tranny van around the mountains of France, Switzerland and Italy downhilling.

    Kids came along and the riding (especially racing and roadtrips) had to take a bit of a back seat.

    A bike shop is Born

    Karl (Dr. Crank) happened to mention he was thinking of selling the Whitby bike shop, after a few days of do we don't we, the timing was far from ideal for us as a family with two young boys but these opportunities don't come up that often! Excitement set in then panic, then excitement then panic......! Business heads on, sleepless nights.

    Transition to Full Service

    Shop takeover, bit off more than we could chew trying to get organised and open a week after getting the keys. Hopeful that we will continue to provide a local friendly bike shop and evolve as Doctor Sprockets Bike Shack as time goes on.

    The Future

    Still. In the saddle at the top of a black run. Heart pounding. Scared. Excited. What's next? Who knows!?! Let's go!

    Only two more sleeps until the Tour de Yorkshire! The kids and I had a craft afternoon......and so far the works of art have stayed up!! Free spectator guides so pop in and help yourself. We have decided to close at 1pm to go and enjoy the race and give those competitors some well earned support!

    Somebody missed out on their Easter eggs but with Whitby's Goth Weekend approaching, they will still look great riding a HIRE bike from Doctor Sprockets! Nice new selection of hybrid style bikes for hire, £25 a day.

    We had a request for something 'girly, pink and retro', that would look good carrying wild flowers and some fresh bread......Lance thoroughly enjoyed test riding the bike round the block!

    Think the pictures say it all! Great idea to help kids burn off some of those Easter eggs this weekend.

    BERGAMONT is also making an appearance in @drsprockets; a brand that is proving to be popular and with links to SCOTT it's bound to keep evolving......watch this space!
