LBSD September

 

Independent cycle shops can sign up free of charge to take part in this year's Local Bike Shop Day taking place this Saturday 5th September!

This year we are focussing on:

Back to School; what better time than now to start encouraging the younger generation to start using an efficient, environmentally friendly and healthy mode of transport? With people currently being discouraged from using public transport cycling is the perfect solution to get children to school safely.

Keeping the nation cycling through to autumn; so far 2020 has seen the use of bicycles reach an all-time high, with data showing that cycling levels during lockdown rose by up to 300%. Let's show these new cyclists that there are endless reasons to continue cycling throughout autumn.

Join in on the celebrations at localbikeshopday.co.uk.

Once you have signed up spread the word to your community and encourage more people to get involved with the hashtag #SupportYourLocalBikeShop!

 

Get your hands on a FREE retailer pack!

The first few hundred retailers to sign up on the Local Bike Shop Day website will receive a physical pack in the post to help them promote their business on the day and drive footfall into their store. This will include a poster, door stickers and flyers.

Over 200 of these packs have already been given away to participating retailers! To get yours now make sure you sign up at: localbikeshopday.co.uk/sign-up-now/.
