News just in from Facebook – Soho Bikes will sadly be closing.
I am disappointed to announce that Soho Bikes will cease trading from its Berwick Street premises on Friday 26 January. The store will remain open and we will continue to run the café and a limited workshop service until that date*. A clearance sale for all stock starts today; do drop by for some mega bargains!
Soho Bikes opened in summer 2014 as a full-service bike shop, workshop and café. We took the bold decision to also sell mountain bikes, a market that we felt was underserved in London. In many respects the shop has gone from strength-to-strength, as I am sure any regular visitor would testify: Soho Bikes sells a wealth of quality products from market leading brands, our workshop is flat out and our coffee is highly acclaimed. The store has achieved a 4.9 star rating on Facebook, 4.8 star rating on Google, 4/5 rating on London’s Best Coffee, 9.1 rating on Beanhunter, was runner-up in the ‘Best UK Bike Shop’ category at the Singletrack Reader Awards in 2016 and won ‘Best Bike Shop in London’ in the MBR reader awards 2017.
Unfortunately, and as clichéd as it sounds, all good things must come to end. I have taken the decision that for personal reasons I can no longer continue to run Soho Bikes and I have been left with no other alternative but to close the doors for good.
If you have recently placed an order with us, or have your bike in for servicing, please don’t panic! We will be in touch during today or tomorrow to discuss the best options for you.
I would like to thank all our loyal customers, fantastic staff (past and present) and many great suppliers. It has been fun – I am just sorry it has had to end.—Nick Hawker
