Lance's obsession and love of riding and racing bikes has never faded since the first time he jumped on a bike. All friends generally link Lance to some form of biking whether pedal bikes or motorbikes.
Our honeymoon was even a road trip in a tranny van around the mountains of France, Switzerland and Italy downhilling.
Kids came along and the riding (especially racing and roadtrips) had to take a bit of a back seat.
Karl (Dr. Crank) happened to mention he was thinking of selling the Whitby bike shop, after a few days of do we don't we, the timing was far from ideal for us as a family with two young boys but these opportunities don't come up that often! Excitement set in then panic, then excitement then panic......! Business heads on, sleepless nights.
Shop takeover, bit off more than we could chew trying to get organised and open a week after getting the keys. Hopeful that we will continue to provide a local friendly bike shop and evolve as Doctor Sprockets Bike Shack as time goes on.
Still. In the saddle at the top of a black run. Heart pounding. Scared. Excited. What's next? Who knows!?! Let's go!
Bit of bed time reading for you all!

It's Father's Day next Sunday folks, check out our range of perfect gifts to keep your dad biking, whether it's some SIS nutrition, a bike bottle, a handy phone wallet or some gloves! The boys will be 'treating' Lance to a bottle cage as I was tempted to drink from a puddle during a ride on the Crockett 5 today!!!!

Loving the new ENDURA luggage sitting neatly beside our new range of BONTRAGER helmets. Is 'luggage' a girl thing?? I was genuinely excited about unpacking the tool rolls, riding wallets and the thought of organising it all so perfectly into a single track hydrapack or a luminate back pack is beyond words 😂, maybe I need to get out more!!

Spread the word please that we will be closed from 15.00hrs next Tuesday 06th June and all day Wednesday 07th (re-opening Thursday from 13.00hrs as usual). Whilst you might think we are treating ourselves to a day off.....we are actually popping 'down country' to TREK towers to see what delights they have in store for the 2018 launch!

Happy bank holiday y'all! We are open today until 3pm. Although it's looking a little dull today we have booked good weather for the rest of the week ☀️, so don't forget we do bike hire if you want to explore the North York moors on two wheels!
