Welcome to the GCN Show! This week we’re discussing local bike shops, are they actually worth saving?

Local bike shops have long been stalwarts of the cycling industry, but as with many “bricks and mortar” shops they have been struggling in recent years with the growth of online shopping. So we want to know whether you think bike shops are worth fighting for? Or if they should be allowed to fail, as so many high street shops have recently? Remember to comment who your community cycling hero is. Leave their name in the comments along with why they’re a local hero!
