A popular bike shop that has been serving the residents of Bristol for 79 years is to close its shutters permanently.
Harveys Cycles on Henleaze Road first opened in 1938, but will be closing for business on October 14.
Owner Graham Masters told the Bristol Post: “It was a hard decision because we have great customers, but my mum and dad are now 85 and 84 and I want to spend more time with them.
“It has been quite emotional but our customers have been terrific and we feel it’s the right decision.”
if you live in the area and fancy picking up some bargains, there will be deep discounting in the coming weeks as all stock is sold off.
After an unpromising start, having to be bribed by her parents to learn to ride without stabilisers, Sarah became rather keener on cycling in her university years, and was eventually persuaded to upgrade to proper road cycling by the prospect of a shiny red Italian bike, which she promptly destroyed by trapping a pair of knickers in the rear derailleur. Sarah writes about about cycling every weekend on road.cc.
