How many bikes can you get in your bike store?

June 26th 2019

Our bike store was stuffed the other weekend with many tandems – you could hardly move!

We were delighted to host Vision of Adventure, an organisation that provides cycling holidays for the visually impaired. The VIs ride on the back with a sighted person up front. They had a fantastic few days exploring the wonderfully peaceful and picturesque lanes and bridleways around the south Lake District.
