Well here goes our first entry on this blog so i may as well start by telling you a bit about "us"......
"Us" is Sharon, Mitchell and Caitlin Doyle and we are in the process of setting up a bike hire business in Margate, Kent.
As the name of our blog says the company name is "Caitlins Beach Cruisers" and we will be based and trading from Margate Harbour arm Margate, Kent.
This blog will keep track of how our first year (and beyond hopefully) goes.
A bit more about us we still live and work in London (both in Support roles in Education) and will do so until Caitlin has finished her primary education at which point we will up sticks and journey down the M2 to Kent, hopefully to settle somewhere in Thanet.
The idea to start a bike hire business came from a conversation with someone at the start of October 09 and within two weeks we had a meeting with Thanet Distict Council selling them the idea and since then the whole thing has snowballed, to the point where we have secured a place to trade from (a unit on Margate Harbour arm) have half the bikes needed to start, are in the process of having a website set up and trying to find an insurance company who will cover us for public liability insurance.
