Schools out…

It’s the summer holidays – and hopefully, the good weather isn’t going to take a break either!

You *could* do the usual summer holiday things – clothes shopping, beer gardens, a trip into town… or you could get on your bike, enjoy some fresh air and sunshine, take in some of the stunning scenery that Northumberland has to offer and end up over at Cycle Art for coffee, cake and a fantastic range of bicycles, components, clothing and accessories.

If there’s cycling on the TV we’ll be showing it live, if not there will be some sort of sport being shown, and we have magazines, books and did we mention we have cake?

Ultegra Di2 Demo Bike

ultegradi2_1 So just how good are electronic gears? Shimano have lent us one of their demo bikes equipped with Ultegra Di2 for you to try. We have it set up in the shop on a turbo trainer ready for any test pilots who want to have a go. The multi shift function has been activated using the Di2 custom software that allows the rider to change how the shifters work so you can try this option for yourself too. We have the bike for a limited time so come on down for a test ride.

Maillot cookies

maillot cookies 002 Fresh from the Cycle Art kitchen are these Maillot Cookies. Made from scratch and iced by hand they look like just what you need to go with a good coffee or cold drink from the fridge whilst watching the Tour de France live on our big screen. I like the climbers version best.
