Opening a cycle shop in a recession is a risky venture, but Green Bay Cycles has proven it can be done, and done well.
Of course their primary mission is to sell bikes, but it goes beyond that. Their efforts to provide their customers with quality service is top notch with free drop off and delivery. They have a great products for everyone in the family, not just the hard core roadie. They also have a big heart, jumping in with both wheels and doing what it takes to be a part of the cycling community and local community.
If you don’t get their newsletter, you should. It’s full of information about the shop, rides and sales, but also about the many charities they are involved in and how you can help.
One of the cool charitable events they have coming up is a night with the Columbian Women’s Pro Cycling Team, on May 31st at LaBrasa Restaurant on Montrose.
It’s an opportunity to meet the team, have some great food and help them out as they try to compete on the world stage. Columbia is a great training ground, with it’s massive mountains and temperate weather, which makes the team very strong. Traveling to compete is very costly and funding for women’s cycling is very thin.
Check out Green Bay Cycles home page for more information on the event with the Columbian Women’s Pro Cycling Team. While you’re there you can also learn more about Pam’s cycling trip to China and Women Vs. Cancer fundraiser.
If you haven't visited Green Bay Cycles, it's worth the trip. It's a bike shop, it's a community center and much more.
