Norte! is a firm believer that local bike shops play a mucho important role in bicycle friendly towns.
Like People For Bikes recently wrote, “To many people, bike shops exist to do repairs and sell bicycles and components to customers. Shops can also serve another equally important purpose: as a hub for advocacy within their community. Through support of infrastructure and other bike-friendly policies, retailers help make bike riding better in their communities.”
As part of our TC Bike Month events, we’re excited to host the inaugural Shop You Local Bike Shop Day as a way to acknowledge and support our many wonderful shops here in Traverse City.
So ride on down to McLain Cycle & Fitness, Einstein Cycles, Brick Wheels, City Bike Shop or GT Cycle and show them some love tomorrow.
Give ’em a high five for being awesome. Get your bike tuned up. Maybe snag a new bell. Or a basket. New helmet could be awesome too. And let them know that you appreciate their support of a bike-tastic Traverse City.
Bike TC Tshirts designed by the talented Tee See Tee are just in and they’re awesome. Get yours at participating bike shops tomorrow. 100% of proceeds to support our bike-centric, youth-focused programs.
