Runners Need and Cycle Surgery store opens in Broadmead

This week sees the opening of a dual branded Runners Need and Cycle Surgery store in Bristol.  Located on Merchant Street in the Broadmead shopping precinct, it is the first city centre combined Runners Need and Cycle Surgery store that parent company Snow+Rock is opening outside London.

Spread over two floors, the new store will offer an extensive range of running and cycling products, along with other elements designed to deliver a comprehensive and bespoke experience to consumers.  Runners Need and Cycle Surgery opens in Bristol on Thursday 16 October.

Following the success of previous projects, the Runners Need side will be the company’s seventh partnership location with Nike.  The store will feature a wide selection of men’s and women’s technical running clothing, and the latest footwear and accessories, from Nike and other leading brands, including ASICS, Brooks, Gore, Saucony and Garmin.

The premium retail area will also feature a cutting-edge Gait Lab with a dedicated environment equipped with gait analysis technology in which the store’s expert team can analyse customers’ running action and recommend the most suitable footwear.

Cycle Surgery will offer a comprehensive range of commuter, road, mountain and folding bikes, and will showcase the latest products from the world’s leading cycling brands.

Riders looking to take their cycling to the next level will be able to take advantage of a state of the art bike fitting studio, in which fully trained staff will ensure that they are correctly positioned on their bikes. The fitting service is tailored specifically to the individual and focuses on all aspects of rider position to provide an efficient and comfortable set up.

Customers will also be able to benefit from a cutting-edge workshop, which is equipped with the latest technology and equipment and offers a range of services, carried out by expert technicians.

Richard Cotter, Snow+Rock CEO comments: “We’re really excited about the opening of our dual branded Runners Need and Cycle Surgery store in Bristol city centre.  Merchant street is a fantastic location and we look forward to offering our customers an unbeatable shopping experience.  We know that combining the two brands can work really well in the right location and Bristol has all of the right ingredients to be another success.”
