Another successful bike business has been told to make way

Landlord tells Cambridge Cycle Store to leave

After trading for over a decade in Boltoph Lane, Cambridge Cycle Store is to close after its landlord – Corpus Christi College – has told it to leave (Cambridge News).

The store said it was "leaving, but not by choice" and will shut September 20th, already winding down for the closure. The business will merge with Blazing Saddles, according to the report.

Meanwhile in London, Look Mum No Hands is set to leave its successful Mare Street location thanks to a rent hike.
