New bike shop, Cycles UK, opened for business in Creek Road on Saturday morning. The new branch is intended to be the flagship store for the independent chain, and will stock bikes and accessories from leading brands such as Specialized, Marin, Trek, Wilier and Cube.
The opening was nearly derailed by the recent break-in and theft of eight cycles, but thankfully everything went ahead as scheduled.
On Thursday night, local cyclists were invited down to an "open night" to see what the shop had to offer and enjoy a drink and a chat with the staff. Peter Skelton from Cycles UK tells me that the store's dedicated women’s cycling area received particular praise from the female cyclists in attendance.
