I'll be in Reading, UK next week on business. Can someone give me some names of bike shops worth visiting? Actually I want to buy a new saddle. Any websites I can review before I leave?
TIA

I wouldn't bother with Reading, apart from getting in and out of there as soon as you possibly can!

All that said, I don't think you'll beat net prices for saddles etc - though Condor is worth a visit anyway.

Unfortuntly it's business & Reading is where I'm staying. Can anyone recomend a bike shop nearby Reading that does rides? I just spoke with the folks at BikePark & they have rides but & I have to get into the city.

Try there - they are the local guys.

Failing that - come over to us in Guildford on a Sunday morning (20 miles away):

We do a TT every Wed evening - there is a direct train from Reading to Guildford.

OK I heeded the advice & changed my hotel to London, Hyde Park section. BikePark has a Surry hill ride on Sunday. Muncher thanks for the inputs you guys might be a bit more hard core then this middle aged rec rider. Does Condor have a web addy?

Condor's site doesn't do them justice

A nice relaxed non-hardcore sunday ride would be just the job for me.....
