The inaugural, UK ‘Local Bike Shop Day’ takes place on Saturday 6 October 2018. This celebratory day was inspired by the success of UK Record Store Day which is now in its 12th year.
‘Local Bike Shop Day’ hopes to take inspiration from Record Store Day and give smaller, independent stores an opportunity to highlight what sets them apart from the bigger national retailers, namely being at the centre of their communities, specialist knowledge, personal service, individuality, and their dedication to help cyclists get the most out of their cycling, whether they use their bike for leisure, commuting or competing.
Drop in to see us on Saturday 6 October for a chat about all things bike.
On the day there is:
– A prize draw for a chance to win a free bike service
-An opportunity to test ride our new electric demo bike – Forme Peak Trail
-The chance to view the new ‘Bikepacking in East Lothian’ film
-And of course – Coffee & CAKE!
The new ‘Bikepacking in East Lothian’ film, which features a certain local bike shop 😉 , is being released the week leading up to ‘Local Bike Shop Day’. The film, commissioned by East Lothian Council, stars The Jones family , Jig and Lachlan Johnson and is filmed and narrated by Markus Stitz.
The ‘Go East Lothian Trail’ films are available on Bikepacking Scotland’s youtube channel
More information about the ‘Go East Lothian Trail’ is available here.
