About ACTiV

Premier cycle store in Kent

With over 30 years’ extreme sports retail under our belt, we are now a dedicated cycle store. Family owned and run by keen cyclists, we are proud to be a Trek dealer, providing the world’s best bikes to help customers realise their dreams, whatever their riding style or budget. We also supply the fun range of Electra bikes.

One of our greatest pieces of news is that we now offer 2 years' FREE servicing with all new bikes bought from ACTiV.

Naturally we have all the gear, bike fitting skills, a fully equipped workshop, local rides and everything you’ll need to enjoy the best pastime in the world.

We go the extra mile – so you don’t have to.

At ACTiV Cycles we have always tried to do more than our customers expect of us. Our key assets are our committed staff, our great suppliers of superb cycling related products and our handy location.

One of Kent’s leading cycle stores, of course we the largest bike shop in Folkestone, but we also serve the whole county. Our specialist and expert service means that we are also the number one cycles store for Hythe, a favourite bike shop for Ashford and Dover customers, as well as Canterbury, Romney Marsh, Maidstone and further in Kent.


We’re on your doorstep! With plenty of free parking in the road outside the shop, there is also the Leas underground car park nearby, so pop in whenever you like.


We are so close you can easily ride your bike to us – as many do! Our local stomping grounds on or off road, include Hythe and Saltwood, along the seafront via Sandgate, or beside the canal towards Romney Marsh – we even start many of our MTB rides from Saltwood!


Only about 20 minutes along the M20, (or the A20 if you’re cycling!) many of our customers are from Ashford and the surrounding villages of Wye, Sellindge, Brabourne and Aldington.


We have many cyclists visit our store from east Kent, including Dover, Deal and St. Margarets Bay.

Not far along the coast… and it’s all downhill from Capel!


You don’t need to be Fabien Cancellara to cycle to ACTiV from Canterbury and surrounding villages like Bridge, Barham, Stelling Minnis and Chartham. In fact most of our customers aren’t quite like him, but the area does seem to breed many cyclists who like to shop at ACTiV Cycles.

Romney Marsh

Not far and flat, flat, flat cycling! Dymchurch, New Romney and Lydd are home to many a bike from ACTiV.

Preferred Kent-wide

It is not unusual for customers to regularly come to us from Maidstone, West Kent, North Kent and Medway. They feel that the Trek brand and expertise at ACTiV is worth going just a little further for than other bike shops a little closer to them.

So if you live in or around Folkestone, Ashford, Dover, Canterbury, Dymchurch or Maidstone, we’re YOUR local bike shop.
