Canadian independent bike shops will be united again this year to celebrate the roll small businesses play in supporting bicycle culture and healthy lifestyles in communities across the country.
This year’s BSD date has been set for 23rd March, where each store or venue will create an event to celebrate the bicycle and their local cycling community. Events vary by store but can include group rides, educational clinics, product releases, new store openings, sales and live music.
Sean Carter, Co-founder of BSD, said: “What your store makes of Bike Store Day is limited only by your imagination. Each bike store decides how to celebrate.”
BSD was founded and developed by BikeBike Inc, London Bicycle Cafe, and Curious Communications, and will be celebrating its second year in 2019.
Participation is open to all independent bicycle retailers throughout Canada, and a national events listing can be found at www.bikestoreday.ca/events.

The Association of Cycle Traders (ACT) and Dan Jones have announced the UK’s second Local Bike Shop Day will take place on the 4th May 2019.
