Helvetia is Here!

We’ve been promising them and here they are. I spent long hours describing all the details and improvements on our upgraded “classic” jersey and you can read all of that at this link.

For a limited time, we’ll be giving away our new Bike Switzerland musette bag anytime you buy this jersey with any pair of shorts.

Meanwhile, check out the other new items in our accessories section: new Bike Switzerland gloves and caps for 2013. You can see those here.

New volunteer staff this year

Ben Chamberlaine has beenworking as our head mechanic since April. Although only 22 years old, Ben’s bicycle pedigree is long and impressive.

His great grandfather openned Chamberlaine bicycles in Camden (London) back in the 1880s and Ben had been working at the shop until he came to Switzerland.

He’s done his professional training at the Aylesbury Training Group and has been certified by DT-Swiss.

Francis Desaulnier: This year’s intern hails from Quebec where he has been working at a bike shop for the last few years while doing his Masters in Geography.

As our mountain bike specialist, “Frank” will be in the shop to give advice, do servicing and help out with our weekly club rides.
