Cotswold Outdoor

Snow and Rock

Runners Need

Cycle Surgery


Cotswold Outdoor started life in 1974 as Cotswold Camping, selling a range of basic camping accessories from a small outbuilding in the Cotswolds. Now the company is an award winning multi-channel retailer with stores throughout the UK. With four decades of experience in outdoor retail, they offer one of the most extensive and comprehensive ranges of outdoor clothing, products and equipment. Selecting from over 250 internationally recognised brands allows them to bring you the latest in outdoor technology and styles.  

Snow+Rock was founded by a small team of crazy, snow sports obsessed individuals who, since opening their first store in London in 1982, has always been one step ahead in the world of winter sports. They invented the concept of boot fitting and introduced the first Boot Fit Clinic into the UK.

Runners Need with its 34 nationwide stores will help you achieve your personal fitness goals with the latest products from world-leading brands, friendly, expert advice and a personal service that you can trust. They also lead weekly run clubs and host exclusive events to support, inspire and motivate the local running community. Whatever your personal fitness goals are, Runners Need is there to help you every step of the way.

Cycle Surgery formed in 1992 as a bicycle workshop in a basement in London. With the growing number of people being drawn to cycling by the mountain bike boom during the late 80's early 90's, they seized on a gap in the market for servicing and repairs not being delivered by other cycle retailers. With 34 stores nationwide offering the best brands in road, mountain bike and commute cycling, CycleSurgery has close ties with competitive and community cycling organisations which keeps us at the forefront of the industry.
