An electric bike shop is celebrating being named the best in the county.

Eden-e-Motion, in Kirkby Stephen, will receive the Best Electric Bike Retailer in Cumbria title in the Northern Enterprise Awards ceremony in September.

It is the second award this year for the business, which is run by husband and wife team, Paul and Kat Clow.

Earlier this year Eden-e-Motion was awarded Female Friendly Bike Shop accreditation by the Association of Cycle Traders.

Kat said: "We are absolutely thrilled to have been told we have won the new award and would like to thank whichever customer it was who nominated us.

"We have tailored our business around the needs of each customer, and our aim is always to find the right bike for their specific needs.

"We believe our location in the Eden Valley has given us an advantage in winning this award.

"We’re located within a good transport network – only a 15 minute drive from A66, M6 & 10 minutes cycle ride from Leeds-Carlisle’s Kirkby Stephen railway station and less than 10-minute walk from Kirkby Stephen town centre.

"We have two showrooms dedicated to electric bikes, and we are also able to give people the opportunity of riding them on real cycle routes, taking to the hills behind us."

Paul added: "Our approach has always been to offer the best service to our customers: before, during and especially after they have purchased from us.

"Being awarded Best Electric Bike Retailer in Cumbria is a great achievement and we continue developing our service for our customers.”

The awards will be presented at a dinner in Manchester in September.
