Pop up shop
As part of the annual Bike Week celebrations, Cycling UK is opening a pop-up shop in Cardiff city centre for Bike Week 2021, so if you are in the area please come along and say hello; everyone is welcome.
Thanks to Morgan Arcade for their generous offer of the empty shop, Cycling UK will be creating a cycling hub full of information about what we and others are doing to get people on their bikes. They will be open from Tuesday 1 June to Friday 4 June and you will be able to find out more about Cycling UK’s activities in Wales, collect children’s Bike Week activity packs, pick up the odd freebie as well as getting your bike checked for free.
There will be lots of information in the window for the times we aren’t open, so if you’re passing by make sure you check it out.
Gwenda Owen, Cycling UK engagement officer for Wales, said:
“Bike Week is always great but this year in Wales it’s going to be even better! Creating a cycling hub in the centre of Cardiff is a fantastic opportunity to let many more people know about the great things that are happening for cycling and how they can get involved. Big thanks to Morgan Arcade and For Cardiff for helping make this happen.”
The shop will be located at 2/4 Morgan Arcade, CF10 1AF, facing St Mary Street, one of the main pedestrianised streets in Cardiff City Centre.
