It's time to get the trusty bike out,
dust it off and get cycling!
(or pop in and buy a new one!)
Often called an ‘Aladdins Cave’
Madgetts is bursting with bikes and other cycling goodies
The business was founded in 1924 by Albert
Edward Madgett grandfather of the present owner Mick, but
its origins date back to the 19th century when a
family ancestor repaired cycles in his pub yard. Mick’s
father Eric moved the shop from a ‘shed’ in the family
orchard in Victoria Road to rented premises at Wills Yard in
Chapel Street. This was a combined showroom and workshop
above a furniture shop – which meant carrying all the cycles
On inheriting the business Mick was able to
expand and purchase a more suitable building on Shelfanger
Road. This has been further expanded and now houses 4
showrooms of cycles , a separate clothing department, and a
fully equipped workshop -
The largest cycle shop in the area!
As you see Mick has cycling in his blood –
his mother was cycling while she was pregnant with him – you
can’t start much earlier than
Both he and his father have had long careers
in cycle racing and both been very much involved with the
Diss Cycle Club. There isn’t much about cycling he doesn’t
Our staff are also all experienced cyclists
and always happy to help on technical & physical problems or
just best places to cycle in the area!
Also there is a tradition of tricycle riding
amongst the staff – all (even the office staff) having been
indoctrinated and now owning such steeds. They are much
encouraged to try out and master any ‘new’ concept bikes
that come our way too – such as recumbents and KMX karts.
