Let us first welcome you to Run & Ride, well our website anyway. We hope you notice that we’re not some big corporate giant but instead a very professional medium sized company based in Staffordshire right on Cannock Chase. The business is run by cycling, running, walking; well outdoor sports enthusiasts. We all have a true passion for the outdoor and we feel that this always transfers into how we operate the business. We don’t just talk shop we get out there and enjoy it and it's this that's so important when dealing with you the customer. You see because we have a genuine passion for the sports. We are able to offer knowledgeable and honest advice, not just what we’ve read in a booklet. 

The brands we stock such as Scott, Cannondale, Whyte, Frog, Genesis, Garmin, OTE, Madison are in the store because we love their products. We've been out and tested them or we own products from them ourselves. Tried and tested and guess what if they fail we stop using them and we stop selling them!

Please have a look around the site. We hope you like it. You'll find products from a number of big brands but you'll also find products from a few smaller lesser known ones too such as Spokesman clothing, Accelerade nutrition and Ginger & French gifts and cards. You’ll also notice we've tried to make the experience as good and simple as possible therefore we've included "click and collect", online finance option so you can do all the paperwork from your own home. We also have a fantastic customer rewards program to support those who support us. 

Finally we'd like to touch on our pricing policy. We understand that we need to be competitive therefore we offer a price match policy on hundreds of items. It's really simple, just click on the option on the page and send us the details. Couldn't be easier.

Well we'll leave it there for now. Once again thank you for visiting our store and we hope you enjoy your experience. And please remember if you have any questions then feel free to ask.

    Customise Your Watch and Your Training

    No two runners are the same, and neither are their goals. Set yourself up to reach yours by downloading advanced workouts and training plans to your watch from Garmin Connect. You can even customise your data fields, and download watch faces, widgets and applications all for free at Connect IQ.

    On and Off the Road Running

    A built-in accelerometer captures distance and pace data when you’re running on an indoor track or treadmill, with no need for a separate foot pod accessory. Once you’re done running, it doubles as an activity tracker³, counting your steps and calories throughout the day. It also reminds you to move after sitting for more than an hour. Forerunner 230 is compatible with GPS and GLONASS satellites to locate your position quickly and precisely whether you’re running deep in the woods or near tall buildings.

    Colourful graphic interface shows your heart rate zone and beats per minute¹ at a glance.

    It's Simple. Full Stop.

    Concise, easy-to-understand charts, graphs, maps and more let you view your activities, track progress toward goals and wirelessly upload and share relevant data directly with the online Garmin Connect network. So, you can compete with friends or family members on weekly step or running challenges — and compare your results in real time, using the LiveTrack feature. You can also use the app’s wireless connectivity links to receive current weather conditions, forecasts and smart notifications right on your compatible Garmin device.

    Wear Your Personality on Your Sleeve

    Download the free Garmin Face-It™ watch face app to customise your device with any photo from your smartphone. Just download the app, choose an image from your photo library, adjust the style for time and set it as your watch’s face. Whether it’s a scenic view from your last hike or a picture of your new puppy, with Garmin you can add personality to your watch that’s uniquely you.

      Delivery

      There is free postage available on all orders over the value of £25 excluding large items such as bikes. We send orders either via Royal Mail (small items) or via a recorded delivery courier, which will require a signature on receipt. If there is nobody available at the delivery address to accept the delivery a card will be left to inform the recipient and the courier will re attempt the delivery once more. After the 2nd attempt the courier will leave a card explaining how and where the customer can collect the parcel from. Unfortunately we are unable to request the courier to leave the goods without a signature. We are sorry but we are unable to leave a message "such as leave in the shed" for Royal Mail deliveries

      Please ensure you enter a valid email and mobile number for us to send you tracking details for the product you've ordered

      All bikes are fully checked and serviced before they leave the store. We do our best to make the bikes as ready to ride as possible. They will arrive in a large sized box and once unpacked the bike will require the user to turn the handlebars and tighten the stem bolts. Don’t worry if you're unsure abut how to do this as you find directions on how to do this within box along with a "new bike guide" detailing information on how to look after your new bike.

      PLEASE NOTE: A working day is Monday - Friday and doesn't include bank holidays.

      Pre-Order

      With Pre-Order, you can purchase the latest items added to our store in advance of them arriving with us.

      You Pre-Order is prioritised (at no additional charge); meaning that, as soon as the product arrives with us, we can wrap it straight back up and get it sent out to you - it often never even hits the stock room shelves!

      Pre-Launch

      With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

      So, instead, you can submit your email address against the item you are interested in and we will email you as soon as stock arrives on the system.

      Estimated Delivery Dates

      Estimated Delivery Dates are given on Pre-Order and Pre-Launch products. They are for indication purposes only and can change at any time without notice.

      The dates we provide are based on indications given by our suppliers. Whenever we get updated information from our suppliers we will endeavour to update the Estimated Delivery Dates provided on product pages.
