About us


Velotastic is owned and run by Paul Gregory. An avid cyclist for as long as he can remember, Paul is mad about bikes, to the extent that he and his family think that a trip to Belgium is a pilgrimage and not a holiday.

2011

Velotastic starts with an old Mercier bike and the struggle to get parts for it. We start buying parts from abroad and selling the bits not need online.

2012

After filling a loft and a garage full of bits and having not seen the dining room table for a few months, Velotastic moves into a business premises. We also start importing new parts and accessories from businesses in the US and Europe.

2013

Velotastic comes up with a cunning plan to design and have produced a Yorkshire themed jersey and cap. These prove to be popular with both pro and amateur riders with a soft spot for God's own.

2014

We take the show on the road and exhibit at Eroica Britannia and the Chiltern Cycling festival.

2015

Velotastic out grows it's existing premises so we move across Chesterfield to an office in a lovely old building that used to be used my a local coal and steel magnate.

2016

Paul gets his Cytech qualification to back up years of bike fettling and we open a workshop repairing and servicing bikes.

2017

We decide to share our love for some of our local roads and trails by organising the Hardcore100 reliability ride

2018

The Hardcore100 is a roaring success and a pleasure to do, so we decide to run another event The Brutal Tootle

Our Events


We run several cycling events throughout the year. Our aim is to provide sustainable, fun days out which are a bit more than smashing it round a sportive course.
