If you would like to book an appointment or have any questions about any of our products or services please get in touch

We offer appointments for ski boot fitting and walking boot fitting. Booking an appointment allows us to check that we have a good selection of appropriate boots available in your size area and means we will have time available to work with you.

If you don't have an appointment we may still be able to fit you but we must prioritise people that have booked in.

In the winter season many people travel long distances to see us and we are often fully booked so having an appointment may be essential in order to get fitted.

Our contact details are below, w
e try our best to get back to you as soon as possible but in busy times we may not be able to respond straight away.

After a testing but successful winter of trading, despite the closure of Ilkley Cycles, we are very happy to be into our fantastic new premises in Otley.

Many thanks to all our customers for bearing with us and being patient during the change from Ilkley Cycles to Wheelbase, it was a difficult time for all of us but the new premises is well worth the wait!

Our New Shop
We are very excited to be in our new premises at Wharfebank Mills, Otley.

How To Find Us.

We are now situated in the Wharfebank Mills Complex on the outskirts of Otley, there are two entrances to the site, the main entrance is from Ilkley road near the turning from the A660. There is an entrance to the left of a building site surrounded by wooden hoardings, take this entrance and turn right into the first car park. Drive straight on along a cobbled road with the Hoardings on your right, follow this past the right end of the large mill building (with the Wharfebank Mills sign on a tower) and under a black metal beam. Follow the road left and then right round into another car park and keep going past The Mill Restaurant (the old Boun Apps building). You will find us on the right behind the restaurant building, the 5 parking spaces outside the front of the building are for our customers (if these are full you may need to use the site visitor parking).



There is another entrance further along Ilkley Road by a sign for Wharfebank Mills. This entrance brings you straight to our shop but it is quite a narrow and steep road so only suitable for cars.



Our new Premises is in a beautiful listed mill building with 5 parking spaces right by the shop and ample extra visitors parking to make your visit easier. We have full workshop and boot fitting facilities, toilets, free brews and lovely views!

We are fully focused on the core elements of our business. We are continuing our expert footwear fitting service for walking and ski boots including custom supportive footbeds and boots modifications. Alongside the fitting service, our specialty in ski touring and freeride/off piste boots, bindings, skis and skins will continue to grow and we will still have our ski tech workshop for ski servicing and binding mounting.
