15th May 2022
Grand Opening
a standing exhibition of fine
bespoke & vintage bicycles,
available for public viewing
at 6 Station Yard, Adderbury OX17 3HJ.
Featuring the very best of British & Italian craftsmanship.

The Editor is pleased to announce the establishment of a facility to house a permanent standing collection of selected classic and bespoke bicycles in central England (Oxfordshire, on the edge of the Cotswolds),
"The Golden Age Cycles Gallery."
A festive grand opening is scheduled for Sunday, 15th May 2022.

After 8 years of trading and becoming the largest UK supplier of classic & collectable cycles, Golden Age Cycles have outgrown their former premises. Golden Age Cycles have moved to a larger 2,600sq.ft. facility (4000sq.ft. with a mezzanine floor). As well as a showroom with hundreds of classics for sale, a separate area is set aside as a gallery to permanently display 75+ stunning bikes for viewing only, not for sale. The standing exhibition is separately administered as a registered charity. Trustees have come forward and a separate bank account under charitable status is available to receive (tax deductible) monetary donations. Anyone wishing to donate bicycles or other display items, or to provide them on long-term loan, please contact Brian Reid (email below). Bicycles to be donated should be historically significant, or exhibit design/engineering/aesthetic innovation, or have race histories.

In addition, the venue will be available to host classic rides in the Cotswolds, auctions, jumbles, host Veteran Cycling Club meetings, etc. etc.
In short, to become the UK hub for classic and bespoke cycle enthusiasts.


These marques and many more will be featured.
The new facility is pictured below.
