What is Bikeoke you ask? Well when a bicycle and karaoke love each other very much, they make beautiful music together! The song is of your choosing, the lyrics are on the big screen, you pop on the bike, sing & ride at the same time. Get the crowd to sing along too! This time we’re introducing judges into the competition, so it's not just you folks who can ride real hard, real fast, that will win. There will be lots of prizes including LBK classes and LMNH swag - PLUS a People’s Choice Award! 

RSVP for Bikeoke so we know you're coming pls

At Your Service

HOLY SRAM Bikeman! We have just ordered our super duper ultra mega Unior Tool Chest. We can now face frames, and cut/chase bottom bracket and fork steerer tube threads 😀  (I really hope ours also says ‘Eurostyle’ on the side)

Get your bike winter ready - We are now offering limited spots for servicing over the weekend. We’ll clean your drivetrain thoroughly and oil your chain with a wet lube to protect it from winter road grit and grime. Protect your bits!
Book a Service today!
You betcha we do give vouchers! They're the gift that keeps on giving, great last minute gifts too. LBK gift vouchers can be spent on classes, drop in sessions, parts & accessories, and now servicing. They're perfect for someone you'd like to get a class for, but don't know what date they'll be free. You can pick them up in the shop, or buy them online.

Check these babies out whydontcha? I have not stopped getting compliments (on the lights) since I got them - and if people are seeing you and appreciating you, that means you’re safer coz you’re being seen. These lights are festive, fun, and functional, not to mention USB rechargeable, waterproof, and long lasting in the flash mode. £40 for the set, and LBK members get 10% off! We just got them in, pop by the shop to purchase. 
We had a great ride on Sunday around the Olympic road track. Yoko taught us a lil bit about being on a chain gang, and we all had a go at drafting.

Unfortunately the rumours are true - we've got our own DAPL situation happening right here near London. Oil drilling is meant to commence in the near future, locals have exhausted all their legal means to block this. I believe Surrey Council ruled against the drilling but they've been overturned by the government. Protectors have moved in now to create a human shield. There's meant to be a petition in the works, but until then PLEASE WRITE YOUR MP and tell them they need to step in and say NO to our dependence on fossil fuels. 

Leith Hill is a popular cycling route for both road and MTB. Expect roads to be populated by HGVs when this drilling happens. We need to make it stop!

Partytime! Excellent! 
Some fun news from our friends in the meantime...
I leave you with a video from #SaveLeithHill. Get involved, go to the bike ride protest, follow them on facebook and Twitter, WRITE YOUR MP. We can't destroy our environment for short term fossil fuel gains. 

Love, peace, and bicycle grease,
Jenni xx
