LBSD September

There is now just over a week to prepare for this year's Local Bike Shop Day taking place on Saturday 5th September 2020.

To make preparations as easy as possible for IBDs during this busy time the ACT have created a digital Retailer Promotional Pack that is available to download here.

The Promo Pack provides retailers with an easy-to-use resource to spread the word about Local Bike Shop Day 2020 and fully benefit from it as much as possible. The pack contains information on:

  • This year's Local Bike Shop Day Key Themes
  • Tips on how to drive people to your store on the day
  • Information on retailer and consumer giveaways
  • Social Media tips to drive online engagement
  • Social Media assets including images, headers & banners

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 local bike shops to showcase their passion, knowledge and personalised service they offer to their local communities.

Local Bike Shop Day has seen year-on-year improvements since its inaugural day in 2018; with more local bike shops getting involved each year we can continue to grow the day to benefit more shops and get more people cycling across the UK.
