What's in store bank holiday weekend?

Join us for another Bank Holiday full of activities, fun and adventure this weekend!

If you haven’t taken part in one of our Bank Holiday events yet, now’s your chance to get stuck in with one of the many activities that we have going on over the long weekend. Alternatively, if you’re in the area and want some advice on the best bike trails, climbing spots, swimming holes or scrambles, our store heroes are experts in local knowledge.

We also have the brand new Exo-Rail system and bike luggage fresh in stores! Pop in to get hands on with the new Exo-Rail seat pack system, learn how it fits to your saddle and how you can use it with both new and old Koala packs.

The Continuum Project is also paired up with Gift Your Gear! This means that GYG will join the existing charity recipients and allows us to expand what donations we can accept. So bring along your outdoor clothing, rucksacks, footwear, tents, cookers, maps and guides, sleeping bags and mats, pan-sets, climbing equipment, sunglasses, walking poles. If you have anything else that you want to donate then please get in touch.

So check out what’s happening during this Bank Holiday below, and don’t miss out!…
