Chain Reaction Cycles

Chain Reaction Cycles are the largest online bike store in the world and have decided to partner with us by taking our Gold Level sponsorship package, giving the project a massive boost.

Chain Reaction Cycles will be providing us with a generous fundraising package along with kit and equipment for the duration of the cycle and are proud enough to be seen with us publicly, wanting the naming rights to the project. We will now be Chain Reaction Cycles One Day Ahead and we are really proud to be part of the CRC stable a company that obviously “gets” road cyclists and cycling.

Chain Reaction Cycles, the world’s largest online bike store, has grown through hard work, a strong family ethos and investment in stock, systems and most importantly people. Here’s the story of how we came to be where we are today.

It was in 1984 that George and Janice Watson made the decision to open a bike shop, which saw George leaving his job in the road service and embark on their journey into bicycle retailing and repair. Thoughts of worldwide success weren’t the main priority when, armed with just a £1500 bank loan, they set up Ballynure Cycles, in the small village of Ballynure in Northern Ireland. Now it is the largest online bike shop in the world although we know that coming from such humble cycle loving beginnings is no doubt why the want to help support us!
