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!
Less than two days until Valentine’s Day but worry not......we are well stocked up with products to ensure the ‘love of your life’ feels well and truly pampered!! #winterriding #mud #roadsalt #biketlc

In the words of Endura, ‘don’t get suckered into losing the joy of riding outside, no amount of computer wizardry will ever replace the invigorating experience of taking on the elements and winning’!! ❄️

'Walking and cycling are more prevalent in the Southern half of England'......what's that all about?!! These are the latest statistics from the Department of Transport who have also found that men cycle three times more often and four times further than women! Immediate thoughts are that maybe we are too busy riding our bikes to be taking the time to complete surveys 😉. Have a great weekend guys ☀️🚴🚴♀️

Happy new year everyone (although belated!) and happy one year for Doctor Sprockets Bike Shack (again rather belated). We have been a little quiet on the social media front, but Santa was kind so we have been making the most of some free time #bergamont #bestchristmaspresent #nowhaveabike!!!
