Not a bad weekend so far.

Well it has not been a bad weekend so far,had bikes hired out both Saturday and Sunday.

As well as the bikes being hired, Caitlin and I managed to smash our personal crabbing record of 63 by 60 making our total yesterday in just over an hour 123 !! we have found that crabs prefer Morrisons cooked chicken over sweaty bacon.

A little better.

Despite yesterdays weather being overcast and grey it was a little better for us as we had a couple of bikes hired out.
It would of been better but sods law being what it is saw us packed up and on the way back to Ramsgate before getting a call from a gentleman wanting to hire a bike, we would of turned back but we was then going to head back to London to see my Dad who was just out of hospital.

Is press ganging legal ?

Is press ganging legal ? if so this is what we may have to resort to due to bike hirers drying up in Margate.
This summer has so far been very quiet may be due to the weather may be not who knows,but it is not helping small businesses like ours.
We are trying our hardest to get ourselves noticed and to some extent it has paid off but a few more hirers would be most welcome.

Another slow start.

Today started pretty slowly on the bike hire front till about midday then we had one bike go out to someone who is becoming a regular customer,then a Spanish couple came along to hire two bikes to check out part of the viking trail and in between hires i replaced an inner tube for one cyclist and sorted out a faulty valve on anothers bike.
Yesterday i had an encounter with the Kent Velo Girls (an all ladies cycle club) when one of their members had a flat tyre (another faulty valve) which i sorted and saw them on their way to finish the viking trail,as i did this for free they said they would put a link on their website and mention to their members how helpfull we are at Caitlin`s Beach Cruisers.

A quiet start to the week.

Its been a quiet start to the week so far,today saw a couple of bikes,kiddies trailer and a tagalong hired out so hopefully things will pick up before the weekend.

The weather has had its moments of sunshine and clouds,yesterday the sun shone for a good while in the afternoon which enabled Caitlin to test her new dinghy in the harbour.

Mentioned in the media.

Its great for a small business like us to get a mention in the media no matter how small and trivial the piece,but this weekend our blog got a mention in the Thanet Gazette and we also got a mention on Heart Radio today which suprised Sharon a bit as they say any advertising is good advertising.
