Alpkit, perhaps best known for their bikepacking kit, and their Sonder bikes, are opening their first retail store in the Peak District. They’ve dabbled a little bit with a showroom at their Nottingham HQ, but are now going for the full outdoor store experience.
It’s not some tiny outdoor store either, but a six-thousand square foot facility located in Hathersage in the Peak District. It opens on April the 14th, with a grand opening weekend planned for the bank holiday weekend of April 28th to May 1st. There’s also going to be a room stuffed full of Sonder bikes, plus a workshop, a resident expert, and demo machines should you fancy taking one for a spin around the Dark Peak.
