"Local Bike Shop Day is a great way for the Local Independents to show the local community what their local bike shop has to offer which the internet cannot. Whether this is advising customers on what bike would be the best option for them, to sizing, to advice regarding different components, servicing etc. We are at the forefront of our cycling communities, and it is great to have the publicity provided from the likes of Cyclescheme and the ACT and to win a £200 prize for our shop it is amazing to be recognised for the work we do."
