Vélo Birmingham has announced specialist cycling retailer Cycle Republic as the official mechanical partner of the inaugural 100-mile closed-road cycling event.
As the official mechanical partner, Cycle Republic will offer significant value to the 15,000 riders taking part in Vélo Birmingham on 24 September.
In addition to exclusive offers and discounts for Vélo Birmingham participants, Cycle Republic will also provide bike maintenance tips and will be on hand to ensure all riders have quick, expert mechanical support on the day of the event should they encounter any difficulties.
Cycle Republic’s impressive new store in Birmingham’s financial district Colmore Row will serve as the go-to destination for the thousands of Birmingham based Vélo Birmingham riders who will be looking for expert technical and mechanical support, cycling apparel, accessories and, for some, a new bike.
Peter Kimberley, managing director of Cycle Republic, said: “We are excited to come on board and support this fantastic event, providing mechanical support and enhancing the experience for riders.
“Our mechanics have cycling in their DNA, and the event’s premium quality and attention to detail matches the level of service and expertise provided to Cycle Republic customers.”
