Local Bike Shop Day 2023

We are always thrilled to celebrate Local Bike Shop Day (or #LBSD) every year, and this year BikeBiz included us in a great write-up

Local Bike Shop Day is an industry-wide initiative managed by the Association of Cycle Traders.

“Local Bike Shop Day is the one day a year when independent bike shops across the UK can come together to celebrate their distinctive culture,” 

“Whether it’s for accessories, for servicing or repairs, for accessories or just for specialist advice, independent bike shops provide a knowledgeable and invaluable service to cyclists of all ages, and this is a chance to support them and celebrate them. We hope bike shops will get on board and use the day to reinforce their customer relationships and promote themselves to new audiences.”

Jonathan Harrison from the ACT.

This year’s campaign is being supported by Cytech, the international training and accreditation scheme for bicycle technicians.

Cytech has delivered more than 22,000 technical training courses to cycling industry personnel and cyclists since being developed 40 years ago.

BikeBiz, an online and in-print publication that delivers trade information to the entire cycle industry, wrote a great article about Local Bike Shop Day and we were delighted to be included.

“Last year, Local Bike Shop Day helped us promote our Spring Sale and us being a local independent bike shop that specialises in disability and adapted cycles. We really enjoyed inviting our customers to see the importance of recognising and supporting local independent bike shops.

This year we will be highlighting the incredible work we do getting all kinds of people on all kinds of cycles – and that you can cycle even if you thought you never could, due to abilities or limitations in your movement.

We truly have a cycle for everyone.

Joanne Mahon, Get Cycling CEO

We hope you’ll join us again next year to support your friendly neighbourhood bike shop!
