Hobbs said: “Next week Teresa May said she will trigger article 50, and the UK will hit the point of no return on Brexit, access to the EU market, and we my have an even crappier exchange rate.

“Well Brexit is screwing my business over, 20% price increases in a world where disposable income is getting squeezed… It’s bad news for bike shops. So I’m going on strike. The shop will be closed all day on Wednesday, and I will be riding my bike.”
