Athens Bicycle Has Closed
We want to thank everyone who has supported our business for over 22 years. We have had great staff members and wonderful customers who have been a pleasure to serve and to get to know.
We have always felt that a good business should give back to its community and we have enjoyed being a part of so many community events and initiatives. We also have loved getting and keeping people on bikes! Your support allowed us to revitalize a corner on Stimson Avenue and to participate in conversations that have expanded bicycle systems in Athens.
We are proud to have helped secure a bicycle friendly designation for the City of Athens, and to have secured funding for the first bike infrastructure in Chauncey (a safe bike route from the library to the up-and-coming connector to the Hockhocking Adena Bikeway). Having been involved in all of the discussions that resulted in mountain bike trails at Lake Hope State Park, Strouds Run State Park and Wayne National Forest, we sure do look forward to watching the future economic and social impacts of the Baileys Trail System.
Now for the details. We are still finishing up a few loose ends for specific customers. We are not having a going-out-of-business sale and we are no longer taking in repairs. We do have a few assets for sale for anyone who would want to start their own bike shop.
A bicycle shop is built on service and we were happy to help. We will miss you all and we hope to see you soon.
Peter Kotses and Meredith Erlewine
