After a lifetime of servitude in the cycle industry Mike Cookson has finally hung up his cape and retired.

Congratulations Mike!  I hope you find the time to do all those things you’ve never quite managed to fit in.

The shop will continue to trade under the Cookson name (I think), under the ownership and management of Shaun and his business partner Sarah.  Congratulations to both of them too, and I hope this opportunity works out really well.

If they’re thinking of changing the name, I think Shaun’s Cycles has a certain ring to it.  Mostly I’m hoping that Shaun’s involvement in the shop will have a negative effect on his training and will provide me the opportunity to rip his legs off for a change!
