Family charity bike ride to mark move to Bearwood

i-Cycle manager ShaunAfter 35 years in Harborne, iCycle, the bike shop, is moving to new state-of-the-art premises in Bearwood. To celebrate the occasion Shaun Jones, iCycle’s shop manager,  wants to invite cyclists of all ages and standards to join him in a charity cycle ride from the old shop to the new one. The majority of the 2 mile route will take cyclists along the pathways of the scenic Harborne Walkway, which follows the old railway line. The riders will be escorted along the route by safety marshals, who will also be on their bikes.

  • Date: Saturday 27th April 2013
  • Starting place: iCycle (on the corner of Harborne High Street and Ravenhurst Road)
  • Start time: 11am prompt
  • Arrival time at new shop approximately Midday

 On arrival at the new shop, all riders and their families will be able to enjoy light refreshments and will also be given a gift from iCycle. There will be a raffle to win a variety of bike accessories as well, with all the money raised going to Harborne-based QAC, a national charity for people with visual impairments and/or other disabilities.

Shaun, iCycle’s shop manager says “We hope we’ll get lots of families and groups of friends joining us for this great cause, it will be fun and it’s a great way to mark the opening of the new shop! It’s important that people sign up for the ride at least a week before it takes place though, that way we can ensure we have right number safety marshals and of course enough refreshments for everyone!”

If you’re interested in signing up for this excellent event, simply email the names and ages of the people joining us along with a contact telephone number to:

    A non junk food shop opens in Bearwood! There is light at the end of the tunnel! I can’t make this ride but looking forward to the new shop opening. Any info on the shop’s location?

      David, it is the building on the junction of Three Shires Oak Road and Bearwood Road (formerly New Arrivals) and it will be a training cafe for the Queen Alexander College for people with disabilities, as well as their cycle workshop.

  4. Hi All

    I am interested in this…..Do we cycle to Harborne’s Queen Alexandra College (where Malcolm and Hazel Hall work!) corner of Harborne High Street and Ravenhurst Road and then do we cycle and are marshalled along the Harborne Streets to the entrance to the Harborne Walkway in Park Road in The Chad Valley (where the toy firm used to be?) where we cycle along the length of the Harborne Walkway to as near to Bearwood as we can, probably near the Harborne Walkway Bridge on the Hagley Road, between Gillott/Fountain Roads and thence along Sandon Road to The Bear Hotel Traffic Light Junction where the new icycle/QAC Cafe will be situated in the old Dalloways Fruit and Vegetable shop which closed in the 1970’s then becoming part of the Mike Draper Fruits Empire……

    Looking forward to it!

    Keith Bracey
