Support your local bike shop

Posted on in Cycles News, Outdoor News

local bike shop day This year's Local Bike Shop Day, celebrating independent bike shops all around the UK, falls on the 4th of May just as the peak cycling season begins.

Local Bike Shop Day celebrates the unique culture of independent bike shops across the UK. They sit at the heart of their communities providing a specialist service like no other, so why should you support your local bike shop?

They have long been the backbone of cycling in the UK, offering a wide choice of products and an immense wealth of knowledge.

Local bike shops will always standout from corporate businesses because they deliver more than just a service, they take you through a journey to finding the right product just for you.

You get the passion, the dedication and the drive when you're in an independent bike shop because the owners and their staff live and breathe bikes and cycling.

Local bike shops are the hub of cycling in your local community with busy workshops, demo bikes, cycle hire, group bike rides, coffee mornings and also cycle specific services such as Ride it away retail finance and cycle to work options.

Whatever experience you have or age you are an independent bike shop will always welcome you, listen to you and provide you with the knowledge and service that you deserve.

So this May, why not come out for an amazing day of celebration, take loads of photos, join in on the social media buzz with the hashtag #supportyourlocalbikeshop and share your support for your local bike shop.

If your favourite shop is not yet involved, make them aware!
