Oakley has set up a cyclists’ pop-up store in London’s Exmouth Market. Open until August, the store has an exhibition space which features rotating exhibitions of artwork illustrating the various faces of cycling curated by Spoke London. Contributing artists include Pol Sifter, Emma Shoard and Simon Spilsbury. There are also images celebrating the European Cycle Messenger Championships.
There’s a ground floor coffee shop, a basement bike mechanics’ area staffed by Seabass Mechanics and a help yourself bike maintenance area. There will be regular bike maintenance workshops covering topics such as wheel building, puncture repair and bike fitting.
Oakley is holding a Friday film club and a bicycle film festival, expert talks and live screenings of the Tour de France, while East London Fixed is providing weekly city rides with routes to accommodate all skill levels.
Situated at 37-39 Exmouth Market, EC1R 4QL, opening times for Oakley in Residence are Wednesdays to Fridays 11:00 to 19:00, Saturdays 10:00 to 18:00 and Sundays 10:00 to 16:00. The venue is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.
Oakley In Residence will be open until sometime in August and is free to enter, although some events require pre-registration.
