Welcome to Papa Wheelies Bicycle Shops, where Service is the cornerstone of our business. We know that a well-tuned bicycle is a thing of beauty and one that isn’t working right can be frustrating and dangerous.

We were awarded #1 in Service by the Boston Tab in 2004, and we will continue to provide you with the best service available. Awarded Best of NH in 2015, you can also benefit from our expert service at Papa Wheelies in Portsmouth, NH.
