Readers always ask us to do more to feature local bike shops. It’s the reason we launched the free London Cyclist app to showcase some of London’s best bike shops.
Today, we’re launching a new useful tool for London cyclists in collaboration with Pocket High Street.
Using the orange search box on the right hand side of our site, you will be able to search for products in over 100 independent London bike shops.
If you are on mobile, you’ll need to scroll to the end of this post to see it.
I know that often we feature products on Wiggle, Amazon and Chain Reaction Cycles here on London Cyclist, which helps us keep the lights on and the site running. However, this is an experiment to see if we can switch to a model which supports local businesses.
We’re going to keep it on the sidebar for a few months and see what kind of feedback we receive. If readers are happy with it, we’ll keep it on there more long term.
As part of the launch, PocketHighStreet have also asked some of London’s cycling retailers to offer some special deals for London Cyclist readers only.
Tribesports – Men’s Performance Cycling Jersey (RRP £48.00 – Now £24.00)
There Cycling – Lightrider Bike Light – £29.99
