Bike clothing shops near Derby ?

Can anyone recommend a good bike gear shop in the Derby / Nottingham area ?
My daughter is going to be staying with her grandparents in the UK soon and I want to get her kitted out in quality duds for a long trip next year .
[ Good bike gear is almost impossible to find in this part of Canada .]
Cheers!

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, the HUBB or to receive the e-zine. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive.
