Botley MTB

Local man Kevin had an idea for bike shop Botley MTB during the first lockdown in June 2020 – just a few months later it was a reality on Botley’s high street. He and his team have been able to remain open throughout subsequent lockdowns operating safely and securely, even serving hot drinks from the hatch at the side of their building. Kevin certainly knows the market; he’s a qualified mountain bike guide and has engaged a pro rider to work with his brand as he builds the business.

Kevin said: “We missed the initial bike boom during lockdown but the electric bicycle market has been growing and I think it’s set to explode.”
