local bike shop day 2020

Despite the terrible weather seen across most of the UK the second ever Local Bike Shop Day was a huge success with over 150 local bike shops getting involved, a growth of 72% from the inaugural year.

During the day, the hashtag #supportyourlocalbikeshop had a reach of over 75,000 and over 100,000 total impressions, there were over 1800 unique visits to the Local Bike Shop Day webpage and several leading suppliers got on board with special Local Bike Shop Day promotions.

Overall feedback from local bike shops has so far been positive.

Mat from John Woods Cycle Repair Centre said "We took part in Local Bike Shop Day to promote the shop and the ethos behind what we think a local bike shop should be about. It's a brilliant tool to be able to engage with customers and have something to celebrate on a small scale that is publicised on a large scale".

Better Health Bikes had the busiest day ever with the highest turnover and lots of new customers. "For Better Health Bikes, local independent bike shops have little voice within national and local news outlets but Local Bike Shop Day is helping to give IBDs a voice and stay front of mind."

For Anglesey Bike Repairs, Local Bike Shop Day is important because "it represents the opportunity to share awareness with the local community of the diverse range of very flexible cycle maintenance solutions and skills that we offer".

Get ready for Local Bike Shop Day 2020!

Of all the IBD's spoken to the common consensus is that Local Bike Shop Day will once again be held on the early Spring Bank Holiday weekend to kickstart the upcoming busy season.

Local Bike Shop Day 2020 will be held on the 2nd of May.
