Happy birthday to world’s oldest bicycle shop

In business since 1860–not a bad recommendation though England is a bit far away–Corrie

 

 

Bicycle shops are sometimes family affairs, but only one has been in the same family for more than 150 years.

Pearson Cycles can trace its history back to 1860 when the business first opened as a blacksmith shop in Sutton, a small town south of London. It’s still in the same location, and the structure of the building remains virtually unchanged.

The family says it’s the oldest bike shop in the world, and it’s difficult to dispute that claim.
