Bike Hire!

Hello Cyclists!

We hope you are enjoying the sunshine and are getting out for plenty of rides…

If any of you are planning on coming to the shop today, please be aware we are very busy… And despite having a lot of hire bikes, we sometimes run out!

We will always try to get you out on bikes as soon as possible, but we don’t take pre bookings!

Thank you and we hope to see you soon!

Shop Ride.

Thursday 29th August 6.30pm.

Meet us outside the shop for a steady ride.

Bring all the family for a nice ride around the woods with a pub stop half way (bring some pocket money!)

You may also need some “get you home” lights too!!

Time Trials

The Time Trial scheduled for Wednesday 3rd July 2013 has been postponed.

The next Time Trial will be held on Wednesday 17th July.

Mervyn, the Time Trial organiser has had his shifts changed at work. We apologise for any inconvenience and we would like to thank Merv and his team of helpers who organise these nights on a completely voluntary basis. It is appreciated by Sherwood Pines Cycles as well as all the competitors, thanks Merv!

Riding Conditions

Riding conditions are drying out fairly well – there is the odd bit of snow and mud but mostly everything is rideable – and we should (fingers crossed) see a big improvement in conditions in the next few weeks as temperatures rise!
