Around 35,000 bikes will be auctioned off over the coming weeks as part of the administration of major cycling distributor Moore Large. 

The long-standing British company, which was reported to have collapsed last week, is now selling off stock and assets valued at £35 million. The administrators, FRP advisory, have appointed Nottingham-based auction house John Pye & Sons to deal with the sales.
