15% Discount for ACU Members at Bike Stop

Few clothing and accessory outlets can boast such fantastic surroundings and welcoming staff as Bike Stop in Old Town Stevenage. Established for over 30 years, the seven well-stocked showrooms are elegantly accommodated in a Grade II-listed building on the High Street. It’s like a real-life Tardis, so much bigger than it looks from the outside – just take a look at and see Dougie Lampkin taking a tour through all of it, upstairs as well on his bike. The Bike Stop team prides itself on the fact that they’re all bikers, and none of the team of trained sales staff are on commission, so their only motivation is to ensure you leave with the right products and advice. If you’re interested in Dainese’s new airbag range, D Air Racing the new D-Air Street system, you’ve come to the right place. Bike Stop’s reputation and expertise mean that it is the UK’s number one D-Air dealer, selling more than anyone else.  As the oldest and longest serving Dainese store they have one of the largest stocks of Dainese stock in the UK plus they  also stock everything from Arai, AGV  and Shoei helmets to the RST  range plus Daytona and Sidi boots and gloves from Dainese, Knox and Rukka.  Then theres soft and hard luggage from Kriega and Givi.  They also offer a full made to measure service, repairs  and tailoring including logos for suits!

They have recently been one of the first shops of its type in the country to be approved by the Trading Standards with their “Buy with confidence” scheme and have just been awarded “Gold Merchant” by Feefo the 100% independent web survey company for all their on line sales. 

If you’re planning on stocking up, there’s free parking right outside the showroom, and if you’re a bit parched on arrival a free cup of Lavazza coffee and a homemade cake will no doubt perk you up before you lose yourself in the seven showrooms, totalling over 3000 square feet of display space.

Special Offers

Specifically for the ACU, Bike Stop will offer 15% to ACU licence holders BUT only the actual holder.  You must just have a valid ACU Licence and share with us the member/licence  number and expiry date. 

Specialist Breakdown Assistance specifically created for ACU members

MotoRescue is a breakdown and recovery service for motorcycle enthusiasts where simply missing a race competition is not an option. In the event that your vehicle breaks down en route to a race event that you are competing in MotoRescue will get your vehicle and your passengers to the event and home again if a repair cannot be carried out whilst you are your race meeting. The scheme was developed by Autohome Assistance, a motor club that celebrated 40 years of service this year, in conjunction with the ACU.

This breakdown scheme is available for cars, vans, 7.5 ton vehicles and trailers. For every membership MotoRescue makes a donation to the ACU Benevolent Fund. This scheme is also offered at discounted rates to all ACU members. When the race is on you will always see the chequered flag with MotoRescue. Autohome MotoRescue are proud major sponsors of the ACU Motocross venue - Milton Park Northamptonshire.
