On Saturday 13 September, Cicli Spirito officially opened its bespoke bicycle shop and workshop located on Atchison Lane, behind 62 Atchison Street, St Leonards. Bike enthusiasts from across Sydney (and beyond) experienced a touch of Europe in a laneway in St Leonards to celebrate Cicli Spirito’s bikes and BBQ open day. Everyone was amazed at the creativity that went into transforming a tiny back room and disused laneway entrance into a truly authentic bicycle workshop that echoes that of the 1960’s Milano. The launch event was a family affair with Papa and Zio Spirito (Ben’s dad and uncle) cooking up delicious traditional Italian food on the BBQ and friends and family of all ages coming together for the love of bike!
