Support Your Local Bike Shop
As spring blooms into summer, many of us are dusting off our bicycles and hitting the roads and trails. But before you head out on your next cycling adventure, take a moment to consider where you purchase your bike and cycling gear. Have you ever thought about supporting your local bike shop? If not, Local Bike Shop Day is the perfect opportunity to do so.
Local Bike Shop Day is a celebration of independent bike shops (IBDs) across the UK, giving them a chance to showcase what makes them unique and why consumers should shop local. This year, the event takes place on Saturday 29th April 2023, and you can find out more information on the official website, https://localbikeshopday.co.uk/
The importance of supporting local bike shops cannot be understated. These small businesses are an integral part of our communities, offering personalised service, expertise, and a passion for cycling that you won’t find in larger national retailers. Not to mention, supporting your local bike shop helps to sustain jobs and boost the local economy.
Local Bike Shop Day welcomes everyone, from experienced riders to first-timers, women and children. It’s an excellent opportunity to learn about cycling, meet fellow enthusiasts, and discover all the benefits of shopping at an independent bike shop.
Last year, over 500 local bike shops participated in the event, and this year promises to be even bigger and better. So, when 29th April rolls around, make sure to show your support by visiting your local bike shop, snapping some photos, and sharing your experience on social media using the hashtag #supportyourlocalbikeshop.
Local Bike Shop Day is a chance for all of us to celebrate the vibrant cycling community that independent bike shops represent. By supporting your local bike shop, you’re not only supporting a small business, but you’re also investing in your passion for cycling and helping to sustain the cycling culture in your local community. So mark your calendars for 29th April 2023 and join the celebration.
