Friendly people in Margate

We recently went on holiday to the <?:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />Margate area and we took the bikes with. To make along story short I broke the rear hub on my Rolf Vigor Prima wheel and went looking for a cycling shop. The only shop we could find was Winners Cycles. They did not have any spares available in the shop but the owner Oswald Kydd offered to borrow me his rear Shimano Dura Ace wheel with out asking me any of my contact details and when my wife asked him if he does not need any details he replied that we cyclist are like a big family and we help each other out.<?:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

I would like to thank Gary and Oswald for there friendly service and if you are in the area give them a visit. O yes if you wondered I did return the wheel.

I also went in there in March and was surprised to see they had R40 000 bicycles in the window. They were also cheaper then Cycle Lab on their Speedplay pedals.

Also just returnd from two weeks in margate . Took my mtb to Dura Cycles . They are across the bridge towards the golf course . Very good service . My bike was still dirty after the Karkloof . He serviced it , new brakepads etc . My bike was never tuned so nicely , smooth like never before .

 

Rock where did you ride ? I took my roadbike along aswell and loved the route from Mgate to wildoast and back . Very hilly though . Most of the time had to ride alone . Checked a blonde in blue kit on that route some days , but did not get to talk to her .
