Phillip has discovered a new local bike shop and writes:
A new cycle shop has appeared recently in the unexpected setting of Weedon. Actually it’s in a nice little shop just up the hill from the crossroads, at 66 High St (NN7 4QD). See www.joyridecycles.co.ukfor more.
I called in on a Saturday morning and was very impressed (although the owners were actually in Paris to see some bike race finishing, so a couple of parents were holding the fort!). Although their main focus appears to be on racing bikes, they also advertise themselves as a family bike store, and they do maintenance. They had some quite exclusive machines (Fondriest) inside, but also more affordable makes. In fact they mostly do brands not otherwise available locally (e.g. Avanti from New Zealand). There was some good value (quality) clothing too.
Overall an attractive little store that provides more choice for people in the Daventry – Northampton area. Worth a visit.
