Our official press release about our new store opening

The Electric Bike Shop is opening their 5th store in Uckfield on Thursday 7th January 2021 joining showrooms in Bristol, Solihull, Stroud & Sutton Coldfield. The rapidly expanding company has been selling electric bikes for over 6 years.

Hands on owner Karl Haden is assisted by Operations Director Sean Byrne who lives locally in Sussex – the Uckfield store will be managed by Jason Stevens from Haywards Heath who has over 38 years retail experience with technical expertise provided by Stuart Smith from East Hoathly.

In store will be a variety of different electric bikes to suit every need and budget, from those designed for getting around town or enjoying bike paths to more serious electric mountain bikes for riders who demand performance when the going gets rough and tough. Top quality bikes supplied by The Electric Bike Shop family include models from Babboe, Cube, GoCycle, Haibike, Lapierre, Mondraker, Moustache, Raleigh, Scott & Tern. Also in store are a large range of accessories and of course the Uckfield store will offer servicing and repair of electric and also non-powered bikes.

“Unlike many other retail businesses, we have had a fantastic year” says Director of Operations Sean Byrne. “In 2020 we opened two more stores in Sutton Coldfield and Solihull and with Uckfield opening in January we will have five stores with a further 4 planned for the first half of 2021.

In bike retail, stock is king and we have a fantastic relationship with our suppliers. We have seen growth of nearly 400% including new space and we have enough stock to supply these stores and more for the next few years.”

Owner Karl Haden reflects “since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic there has been a revolution in cycling and electric bikes enable so many more people including the elderly and less mobile to get out on two wheels. Customers who before thought that perhaps cycling as a form of transport and exercise was not viable to them have realised that e-bikes make the process so much even easier and really fun. There are loads of scientific studies showing a huge health impact from e-biking as it encourages more people to get out on a bike, it enables people to do longer trips than they might do on conventional bikes and it still requires you to do some work!”

Karl continues” I initially was inspired to set up the Electric Bike Shop as I was so impressed with the technology and I could see that this would change the face of cycling, we are proud to call ourselves the UK’s Electric Bike Specialists.”

Despite the recently announced lockdown for January and February 2021 opening will go ahead as planned with cycle shops once again being classified as essential providing a lower-risk option for key workers to get to and from work, supporting key workers using bicycles for deliveries and providing a safer form of exercise (if social distancing measures are kept), which benefits both physical and mental health.
