New CycleSurgery Bike Store to Open in Moorgate, City of London

GUILDFORD, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - April 4, 2011) - Having successfully served the cycling requirements of London's City workers and residents since 1994 we are very excited to unveil our latest Cycle Surgery store within the innovative, award winning Ropemaker Place on Chiswell Street, just off Moorgate in the City of London.

The 4,000 square foot store, with prominent window presence at street level is on a busy cycle route and will be one of the most exciting new bike stores Cycle Surgery has opened for some time. The store will have the best selection of products from the world's leading cycle brands as our customers have come to expect.

Dion Taylor MD of Cycle Surgery had this to say:

"When we first visited Ropemaker Place we learned that the building's carbon emissions are 33% lower than regulations stipulate, it harvests rain water to reduce mains water consumption, has 270 bike storage spaces and fifteen showers for workers commuting by bike and has won the 2008 Green Building Award. Then we took a look at the fantastic retail space that fronts onto one of the busiest parts of London's business district."

Having built up a loyal customer base at our two stores in Bishops Square and Spitalfields in the East of The City we recognized that a large number of busy City workers were more than a lunchtime walk away from our existing stores. The only option was to give them a Cycle Surgery store just minutes from their place of work. With a fully functioning bicycle workshop, the Moorgate store will quickly become a landmark for cyclists in the local area and we look forward to welcoming them at the store.

The store will also feature Runners Need, London's favourite specialist running store offering truly expert advice and free gait analysis. The store will open in late May 2011.

Notes to Editors: Cycle Surgery and Runners Need are part of the Snow+Rock Group. Moorgate will open as the 23rd Cycle Surgery store across the UK and Ireland (12th within Central London).
