What’s in store?

Our Alpkit Ambleside Store is just the same as Alpkit Online. The only difference is that the store is made of bricks and mortar and has a roof, doors and windows.

Our full range is available in our Ambleside Store, from our SnapWire titanium spoons to our Sonder Bikes, with a fleet of demo bikes for you to try out. You’ll also find a bike repair workshop for bikes that are feeling a little worse for wear.

Store Team

Living on the doorstep of one of the greatest landscapes in the UK, how could he not have fallen in love with the mountains? When he’s not in the store, you’ll find Chris somewhere far from tarmac, exploring, and always with his dogs.

Rebecca loves exploring the local fells (and those further afield), running, and climbing. Find her in the Ambleside store to chat about gear and adventures past and planned.

Wayne loves running, particularly on the trails and fells and has recently discovered that he loves a bit of lake swimming too. It’s not rare to see him doing some triathlon when he’s not in store, even though he’s not so keen on the cycling bit!

A mountain bike instructor by trade; if it’s steep, chances are Mark’s been down it faster than he probably should. Sometimes you might spot him hanging from a rock somewhere, otherwise he’ll be in the shop looking after the Alpkit range.

Jack has just recently completed his A-levels and is using his free time to take advantage of all the Lakes has to offer. With a passion for adventure (and a little bit of risk) Jack explores through running up mountains, swimming across lakes and climbing up big things.

Georgia has just completed an outdoor adventure course at Kendal college; she enjoys learning and expanding her knowledge about outdoor kit old and new while enjoying sports like fell running, mountain biking, climbing and skiing. Georgia’s evenings are spent on the top of fells watching the sun set after a hard climb or run.

Eric likes playing out. He walks a bit, runs a bit, cycles a bit, canoes a bit and bikepacks a bit. He also takes photographs - he does that a lot. He can often be found pottering round the quieter corners of the Lake District with a camera or two.

Store Events

We run courses, events and lectures throughout the year. Contact the store for details.
