Following on from the huge success of their inaugural ‘women only’ evening at Cardinal Place Victoria, CycleSurgery has teamed up with BikeEnvy for two more events in London this month:
Tuesday 10th August in CycleSurgery Kings Cross from 7-9pm:
200 Pentonville Road, N1, 020 7713 1312
Wednesday 25th August in CycleSurgery Holborn from 6-8pm:
3 Proctor Street, WC1, 020 7269 7070
Here comes a bit more info and the why and hows:
All too often bike shops are bulging with testosterone, which can be a little intimidating for us girls. So in a bid to readdress the balance and make our stores more welcoming we’ve teamed up with media partner BikeEnvy to host a calendar of ‘women only’ evenings.
So whether you cycle to work everyday, are looking to enter your first sportive or regularly ride your local trails, we’re inviting you to come and experience what our stores have got to offer in a more relaxed environment (ie: with champagne and cup cakes!)
There will be bike maintenance and puncture repair workshops. Bike Envy co-founders Bex Hopkins (a former DH and XC mountain bike racer), and road and track racer Janet Birkmyre, will be on hand to give training advice. Adjoining store RunnersNeed will also be offering gait analysis sessions.
Plus… there will be 10% off all purchases on the evening, and leading cycle brand Specialized are offering some gear as the prize in our prize draw.
