Get Involved

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. It's the day for bike shops to showcase and promote the passion, knowledge and personalised service they offer to their local communities.

It is an event that enables individual shops to be part of something bigger than themselves and, in so doing, to use Local Bike Shop Day to drive more footfall through their doors and the doors of other independent cycle shops around the country.

So, how can you make it work for your business?
