Local Bike Shop Day 2019
Save the Date: 4th May 2019
The UkGravelBike.club endorses the Local Bike Shop Day on 4th May, 2019. Local Bike Shop Day celebrates independent cycle shops and all they have to o er – specialist service and advice that can’t be bought online.
Local Bike Shop Day was established in 2018, by Daniel Jones, in order to celebrate independent cycle stores in the same way that the hugely successful Record Shop Day acknowledges local music stores. It is supported by the industry body ACT (Association of Cycle Traders).
In its first year over 100 stores took part in Local Bike Shop day and this year we are one of the more than 120 cycle specialists that have so far signed up.
We look forward to welcoming regular cyclists, mountain bikers, novice riders, women, children in fact anyone who’s ever had a bike and even those who haven’t but are bike-curious.
