Opening Transit Cycles was the fulfillment of a life long dream and truly that has been enough to keep me on cloud nine over the last six months.
I’ve spent almost all of my adult life working in the bike industry. Since the beginning I have used Bicycle Retailer to get a snap shot of what is happening and a sense of the trends that are developing within the industry. It has been very special to be contacted by them since opening the store and included in stories that explore niche stores such as ours and featured on the cover of the only industry publication.
I recently learned that the shop has been nominated for an Interbike Award in the category of Best Urban/Lifestyle bike shop. The category is filled with some of my favorite retailers from around the country and we couldn’t be more excited to be nominated along side stores such as Portland Oregon’s Velo Cult and San Francisco’s Huckleberry Bikes. More importantly it is great to see the industry recognize a new style of bicycle retail emerging and the customers with whom this resonates.
As I said it is truly an honor just to be nominated. That said, I can be pretty competitive and we are going to need your help to see if we can take home a surprise win in this category. Click on the below link and vote for Transit Cycles as best shop in the category, it will take you less than five minutes and it will mean you have my undying gratitude…in fact we may even throw a party if the shop wins!
