Bespoke Cycles Scottsdale

Welcome to Bespoke Cycles Scottsdale, Scottsdale’s only artisan, steel boutique bicycle shop.  We are a full service shop that specializes in hand brazed steel framesets, hand laced wheels, and fine clothing.   We are located within the serene courtyard of Bespoke Inn; in the heart of downtown Scottsdale, Arizona.  We are passionate about bicycles, travel and food.  Bespoke Inn and Bespoke Cycles is the embodiment of these, with a single goal of creating a truly bespoke experience for our customers.  We invite anyone interested cycling to spend some time in our shop. 

Pashley City Bikes
Guests of Bespoke Inn have complimentary use of our British Pashley city bicycles. These timeless handmade machines are a staple of our inn; you will regularly find our guests on the Pashley’s exploring Downtown Scottsdale, riding along the Canal or taking the Greenbelt to Tempe Town Lake.  Bespoke is Scottsdale’s only authorized retailer of Pashley Cycles England’s longest established bicycle manufacturer. Founded in 1926 and based in Stratford-upon-Avon, each Pashley has been hand built for over eighty years, which is why we carry them at Bespoke Inn, Cafe & Bicycles.

The Location
Our location is in the heart of downtown Scottsdale’s Arts District, a two-minute walk to lively cafes, excellent shopping, and dozens of art galleries. That means non-cycling companions will love it too. For Cyclists, there’s no better place to ride than the Sonoran Desert. Pedal past giant Saguaros and around cool lakes with some challenging climbs and quick and twisty descents.

The Bikes & Shop
Bespoke Cycles Scottsdale  is a boutique full service bike shop that specializes in contemporary artisan steel bicycles.  With brands deeply rooted in cycling’s history such as Casati, Ciocc, Campagnolo, and Ritchey, we offer customers an alternative to the ubiquitous mass produced brands that line the walls of most bicycle shops.  Visit Bespoke Cycles Scottsdale to learn more about our shop.

Luxury Cycling Vacations
When it comes to delivering what discerning cyclists need while on vacation, Bespoke Inn, Cafe & Bicycles is unique in the U.S.  The inn’s luxury accommodations paired with the award winning restaurant Virtù Honest Craft, and an onsite full service bicycle shop translates to a seamless experience.  Ride, eat, relax, we’ll take care of the rest.  The inn’s olive tree-shaded courtyard in conjunction with Virtu’s al fresco dining has become a retreat for our guests and locals.  Many of our guests feel as if they’ve been transported to an Italian Piazza, this is not just a luxury cycling hotel/B&B. It’s a really unique, serene space where active people engage in life and create a “best-ever” vacation experience.

We offer a generous continental breakfast daily with post ride recovery snacks as well as on-ride Musette bags loaded with essentials for the day. Virtù Honest Craft is a new favorite among downtown Scottsdale restaurants.

The Accommodations
Bespoke rooms combine style, character and exquisite attention to detail. Each has a private patio, luxurious bedding and linens, soft chandelier lighting, a ceiling fan, a separate entry, individual climate control, a 40″ flat screen HD LCD TV with expanded channel selections, complimentary WiFi and a refrigerator. Guest rooms include a beautifully designed en-suite bathroom featuring luxury spa & skin bath products, Egyptian cotton towels, a full length mirror and marble vanities with polished nickel fixtures. Post ride, you’ll find a Victoria & Albert soaking tub in three of the four rooms. (The George & Anna room compensates with a shower big enough for you and your bicycle.)

The Amenities
Thoughtfully planned common area spaces allow guests to enjoy as much solitude or interaction as they wish. Guests often find they have the second floor’s heated, 43-foot-long infinity-edge pool, secluded chef’s garden or fireplace lounge area to themselves. On ground level, the central courtyard is a favorite gathering place. Twinkling lights are strung between the centuries-old olive trees that shade the seating areas and the massive, 12-foot, house-made farm table. The courtyard’s central fountain pool adds to the relaxed, convivial ambience. There’s also a fitness center equipped with a Tour de France stationery bike, weights, an elliptical, as well as yoga, Pilates and barre mats & DVDs for post ride stretches.

Bed, Breakfast & Biking lists bike-friendly B&B’s and inns along or near the bike trails and byways throughout the state of your choice. The innkeepers along the bike trails offer hospitality and respite for travelers. They will be happy to help you plan a trip using their B & B as a base or as one of several stops on your biking (or hiking) vacation.
