ABOUT

Northwood Cycle Depot - A family run business since 1924.​

 

 

Northwood cycle depot was established in 1924 by Mr. E.L. Boxall on the same site and is now in the fourth generation of the Boxall family.

The shop has always been called Northwood Cycle Depot but is known locally as "Boxalls".

In the early days we sold motor cycles, car accessories, toys, paraffin, petrol and electrical goods as well as cycles.

We have a collection of old cycles and memorabilia from an original 1890's Penny Farthing through to a Raleigh Chopper, Itera plastic bike and a shaft-drive Fent.

Old cycle collection

 

Over the past 90 years four generations of the Boxall family have been serving the residents of Northwood and surrounding area with new and used cycles & have also been collecting old and interesting cycles as a hobby.

Many of these cycles are on display in the shop and represent the trends and development of the bicycle over the years and with contributions to the collection from all four generations of our family we have a wide and varied range of classic cycles.

 

 

Super Stars

In the 1980s, the BBC ran a program called Super Stars where athletes from various sports came together to compete in a range of sports they did not usually do.


These included archery, kayaking, and cycling.

We ran the cycling and took the bicycles around the country, set them up and serviced them, we also held the competitors on the start line in many of the races.

The photo below is Mr. D Boxall checking over the bikes between heats.

We all remember when Kevin Keegan fell off at Bracknell and Jeoff Capes  bending pedal cranks with pure leg power at the Bath event.

Brian Jacks "judo" was a real power house on the bikes and the gym test.

After the filming the bikes went back to the Raleigh factory. 

Where are they now?  what would they be worth?
