Shop Promotes Cycling

Posted by chdot on July 11, 2008

Richard Dowsett has been running his cycle shop for just over a year. He has just produced a short video (just over a minute) which promotes his shop – and cycling in Edinburgh generally.

Previously known as Great Bikes No Bull, the Leith Walk shop has been rebranded as Leith Cycle Co. He explains on the video:

“What I love about cycling is the freedom, the exercise, the countryside you get to see and the speed you can see it. What I wanted to do when I got into this industry was just get out to people and show them what bikes they can ride and how easy it is and how accessible it is, from really cheap to really expensive.”

The You Tube video is the latest move to promote a new business which is benefiting from more people cycling and suffering from the effects of the preparatory work for the tram which is causing people – especially cyclists – to avoid Leith Walk.

    I gotta admit there was some charm to the other name but tis true that the newer name will bring more people in…
    Did Richard have delicate bone china around, and an aversion to bulls?
