South Downs Bikes, back for another Local Bike Shop Day!

Posted on 28 Mar 2019

LBSD 2019 South Downs Bikes has been around for 14 years and is now a renowned indie bicycle company with two shops in Storrington and Worthing.

South Downs Bikes has had a wonderfully unique journey, with a previous shop located within a Smart car dealership and another in an old forge. In the last couple of years, the Storrington branch has taken shape where the old village social club once stood.

Today, South Downs Bikes Storrington and Worthing have both become destination stores, providing spacious, fresh showroom areas and large workshops.

South Downs Bikes is more than just an amazing bike shop housing road bikes, mountain bikes, e-bikes, kid's bikes, men's clothing, women's clothing and all things bike accessories. South Downs Bikes sits at the heart of the local communities of Worthing and Storrington, supporting and promoting local charity rides as well as offering their own monthly off-road evening rides to cyclists of all abilities, followed by a hearty curry or BBQ! Women-specific events with interesting talks, helpful tips and delicious snacks are a regular feature, as well as bike maintenance evenings. Their workshops offer a full range of services and are filled with Cytech-qualified mechanics always happy to discuss any bicycle servicing needs.

South Downs Bikes took part in the very first LBSD in 2018 and are eager to take part in this year's event hoping to make it bigger and better. LBSD 2019 gives South Downs Bikes another chance to harness the day's potential and really get as much out of it as they can for their shop and local communities.

For Martin, owner of South Downs Bikes, LBSD 2019 is a way for bike shops to come together in an effective way. Bike shops offer something that online trading doesn't, friendly welcoming faces, specialist knowledge and service, something that online trading can't compete with.

LBSD 2019 is a way for all those bike shops out there to highlight and showcase what makes them stand out and #supportyourlikebikeshop!
