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.


Velotastic is born. Paul buys an old Mercier bike and struggles to get parts for it. He starts buying parts from abroad and sells the bits he does not need online.


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


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.


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


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.


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


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


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


As well as running some more cycling events, we start running some bike maintenance courses.

Bike Maintenance Courses

We're running a series of introductory courses in February, March and April to help you keep your bike running as smooth as clockwork.


We run a bike repair workshop that covers Chesterfield and the surrounding area. We can either repair your bike at your home or office or collect it, bring it back to our workshop and deliver it back to you when it's fixed.
We know how important it is that your kid's bikes are safe so offer a free children's bike check with every adult bike that's repaired or serviced.


  • We offer three levels of service
  • from a basic safety check
  • to a full service.


  • From a puncture to a
  • replacement drivetrain.
  • We can get you back on the road.


  • Fancy treating yourself ?
  • We can help you build your
  • dream bike with a custom build.
