The team were so passionate and enthusiastic about cycling and the brand and making the time to make sure the bike was right for me. I travelled up from Sheffield to Liverpool to get the bike I wanted and am looking forward to returning in a few weeks for a free service and now to use my vouchers!"

Dan Fox at Brampton Valley Cycles won the 2021 Cyclescheme prize and said oh his involvement of the day:

"Local Bike Shop Day is a great way for the Local Independents to show the local community what their local bike shop has to offer which the internet cannot. Whether this is advising customers on what bike would be the best option for them, to sizing, to advice regarding different components, servicing etc. We are at the forefront of our cycling communities, and it is great to have the publicity provided from the likes of Cyclescheme and the ACT and to win a £200 prize for our shop it is amazing to be recognised for the work we do."
