About Viking Bikes
Viking Cycling has been part of British cycling since the early 1900’s and was at one point in the 1960’s one of the UK’s largest manufacturers of bikes. During the 1970’s and through to the 1980’s, Viking bikes were fairly well sought after, not least because they offered such models as the Viking Warrior, which now oozes retro cool and can sometimes be found on second hand sites like Gumtree.
In modern times, Viking has a reputation for producing cheap, cheerful and durable bikes that, whilst they won’t be winning any tours, are certainly more than adequate for entry level cyclists and those on a budget.
Owned by Avocet Sports, home of many well known brands, Viking offers a range of bikes, from Kids bikes up through road bikes and MTB, all the way to electric bikes. They range in price from around £200 for a girls 11” bike up to around £1,300 for an adults, electric mountain bike.
Viking is perhaps most well known for its road bikes, sold by a number of national retailers including Halfords, Tesco’s, Amazon and Rutland Cycling (as well as a number of smaller retailers); and prices typically range from £230 up to £450.
