Prime Minister opens Oxfordshire bike shop

David Cameron officially launches Mickey Cranks in Witney
Publish date:

Mickey Cranks, a new cycle hub and shop for West Oxfordshire's cycling community, was opened last week by Prime Minister David Cameron.

Based in the PM's constituency of Witney, Cameron described the new shop as ‘an aspirational and brilliant shop’ while being shown around by owner and ex-military parachute jumping instructor Mick Murphy.

The brainchild of Mick and Kirsty Murphy, the shop is equipped with a Retul bike fit studio and a workshop 'to rival ATG Training'. Among the facilities is a seating area where cyclists can socialise whilst watching their bike being serviced or repaired. Before the PM opened the store, Mick Murphy delivered a group riding etiquette and safety class for local cyclists.

Mr Cameron said: "We need to get more children cycling to school and encourage a whole new generation of cyclists, and having a really aspirational and brilliant shop like this in the heart of Witney I think will do a huge amount."
