Specialist Cycle Auction

Please note: We don’t have any cycle auctions arranged at the moment but for details of our next General Auction please see our homepage. To book lots please contact [email protected]

It’s at a new location Cheriton Recreation Ground, half a mile off the A272 between Winchester and West Meon, about three miles due south of New Alresford. There is a large grassy area aka cricket field for the cycle jumble and auction viewing. There is ample free off road parking on a hard surface. In the small pavilion there is space for a few indoor sellers and we will be serving at least home made cake and refreshments. The renowned Flower Pots Inn is opposite the venue. They brew their own beer and serve substantial rustic lunches. Lots of great cycling in this area and there is the Watercress Line (steam railway) in New Alresford.

There will be a CYCLE JUMBLE run by Alresford Mobile Cycle Repairs starting at 09:00. The organiser bears a striking resemblance to the auctioneer at the cycle auctions! Please click the link for more information.

The auction basics are:

  • Deliver lots 08:00. Viewing from 10:30. Auction starts at 12:00.
  • Sellers: £2 lotting fee, 10% commission, please discuss reserves with the auctioneer.
  • Buyers: 15% commission

Please email [email protected] with any questions.

Do you, a relative or friend have an old bicycle or a box of parts stashed away in a garage or shed? Depending on brand, age, frame material, the fittings and of course the condition, they can be worth a few pounds up to hundreds of pounds.  People buy them to ride as is, restore to original condition or renovate them as “fixies” (single gear bikes) or just to get the parts for an existing restoration project. Of course you may have a bike you no longer need after upgrading to the latest and greatest. Please try and sell it at our auction.
