Ladies Evening – Wednesday March 25th 2015–EVENT CANCELLED

We are pleased to announce our next in store Community event which is a Ladies night on Wednesday March 25th, 7.00-9.00pm.
The growth in Women’s cycling is huge but despite this most bike shops remain a bit of male environment. With two women working at Behind The Bikeshed we have long been the best shop in the area to advise on all things about Women’s cycling. To take this a step further, we are having a night solely for Women to come along and learn a few things that will enhance their cycling experience.
Olivia Bleitz is from Specialized’ California HQ and is working with Specialized UK for 2015 to promote Women’s cycling. Olivia will kick off our evening with a general overview of why women should buy women specific product (you would be amazed how many women and their partners think a small men’s bike will do) and how this links in to Specialized Body Geometry range. Without duplicating the recent OTE talk, we will then give a bit of advice on nutrition and hydration before moving on to the main part of the evening. We will talk about bike preparation and maintenance and will give a practical demonstration of how to quickly and easily change punctured tubes. Finally local yoga instructor Jenny Furby will be on hand to give some tips and advice on personal preparation and recovery to get the most from your bike.
The evening is free to attend but we are limited to 30 places. So contact the shop to reserve a place for what is sure to be a popular event.
