AN independent, Cumbrian business, Eden-e-Motion has been designated a Female Friendly Bike Shop by the Association of Cycle Traders.
The largest cycle trade organisation in the UK is recognising the efforts of owners Kat and her husband Paul Clow, who ensure women who visit their electric bike boutique, on the edge of the Pennines receive the best service when looking for a new bike.
Kat explained: “My own personal experience of cycling was as a child in Finland. We would cycle to and from school. When we moved to Cumbria and decided to take up cycling, I must admit the beautiful rugged hills did make cycling much more challenging. When I tried an electric bike it brought back the pleasure of cycling for me.
“Paul has been interested in the mechanics of cycling – as a schoolboy, he liked dismantling and building his own bikes.
“When we opened the shop, customer service was priority for both of us – we are here to help the novice rider as much as the experienced cyclist find exactly the right e-bike for them.
“As a recent returner to cycling, I understand how daunting it can be looking for the right bike. Paul and I aim to take that anxiety away and replace it with support and advice to help you get your perfect cycle that will get you happily on the road.”
Paul added: “We are a small independent bike shop, who pride ourselves in giving advice and opinion and making sure you invest in the right e-bike for our customers’ needs.
“We are passionate about e-bikes and have carefully selected our suppliers by experience and recommendation. Like us, they are companies who care about the product and their customers.
“Riding an e-bike isn’t hard but does require some basic cycling ability. Customers don’t need to worry if they are rusty. We are in the quietest spot imaginable with all the terrain they will ever encounter. We’ll ride with them until their confidence builds and they can get the best from their prospective purchase
“We provide straight forward advice and have a great range of women’s bikes and accessories. From helping to find the right model to making bespoke bikes and provide great ongoing support with servicing and technical support – we are here for the long ride with our customers.
“Being recognised as a Female Friendly Bike Shop we hope we can reassure women who want to get back in the saddle or upgrade their current cycle Kat and I are here to help.”
