Over the years they've established a reputation for functional and hard wearing, yet competitively priced products. Nowadays Blackburn manufacture ranges of pumps, multi tools, bike lights, bottle cages, mudguards, computers, turbo trainers as well as the famous range of bike bags.
I apologise for this section being a little sparse - there doesn't seem to be much information on Blackburn's history on the web - however you may find additional details on their brief About us page, as well as their UK product homepage.
Ribble Cycles - since 1897!
Ribble Cycles are one of the oldest bike shops in the world, starting in 1897 in Preston, Lancashire, and are perhaps best known for their exceptional value own brand road bikes.
In 1987 (just the 90 years after forming!) they started a mail order side to their business, which helped them to expand - and as per the rest of their competition, launched their website in 2001. In order to deal with the increase in business, the company moved to Bamber Bridge, which resulted in the closure of their Watery Lane shop, and eventual upsizing to yet another warehouse in Leach Place.
In terms of actual cycling, Ribble have historically sponsored some of the most iconic riders in UK and world cycling history; Chris Boardman and Bradley Wiggins have both successfully competed on Ribble bikes. Other noted riders include the ladies Barcelona 92 Time trial team, the 1990's RT Italia race team and Steph Forrester at the Sydney Olympics. In short, they like to support the sport that they trade in!
