‘Rude’ sex shop, Lower Parkstone

April 1, 2015

Ride bike shop turns into 'Rude' for April Fool's Day 2015.

Ride bike shop turns into ‘Rude’ adults only shop for April Fool’s Day 2015. Commercial Road, Lower Parkstone.

On Wednesday 1st April 2015, the exterior of Ride bicycle shop turned into Lower Parkstone’s very own Adults Only sex shop, ‘Rude’.

This was an April Fool’s Day joke that took three weeks to plan, its inspiration based on a number of bike-obsessed customers getting told off by their other halves for spending so much time in the Ride shop!
