What’s happening at OTE during Easter School holidays!

HAPPY EASTER!! If you are staying in Melrose over the school holidays and want to go for a ride –  pop into OTE and ask about our shop rides. They will be suited for all ages and abilities. Pick up a map and have a chat to Jos our new bike manager, about the trails in Melrose or Barts.  He can also help you get back on your bike if you have a mechanical issue. For the kids we have a “scavenger hunt on ya bike”  leaves from OTE – (Gold coin donation – money goes towards maintaining our bike trails) If you are looking at getting your kids a new bike, we have just got in some more awesome BYK kids bikes and balance bikes. Our rental bikes have landed and ready to get dirty!  These are also up for sale so if you hire it and like it – buy it! Plenty of beautiful merino wool and our latest indulgence are the new “Otto and Spike” scarves and beanies to keep you warm – don’t forget to grab an OTE tshirt as a souvenir!! Friday night fun at the Pump track – join the locals and meet down at the pump track after 6pm.  (weather permitting) Also ask Pip if any women rides are going out  –  I am sure she will be up for a ride on her new Cube Peleton. Melrose will have live music at the pubs on the weekends also serving great coffee/wine and food, we have a fantastic rail trail great for families, and if winter comes early come into OTE – we will have our fire going, coffee brewing, few board games and the latest mountain bike DVD to keep you entertained.
