Bad News and Good News

23 Mar

The bad news is that Richmond is losing one of it’s oldest bike shops.  As reports, after 95 years in business, Rowlett’s is closing its doors.  It looks like they’ll remain open a few more weeks, and they are offering significant discounts on their remaining stock, so go by and say ‘bye.  While we’re on the subject of bike shops, the New York Times just published a nice piece about the SoHo shop Bicycle Habitat.

The good news is that spring is here!  Well, actually it’s (strangely) been here for a while already, but it feels like there’s little chance of one of those springtime cold spells or crazy snowstorms.  Ross Catrow has a photo on RVANews that perfectly captures why it’s time to get on your bike if you haven’t already.

Speaking of spring and biking, keep a lookout for info on Bike Week events being organized by RideRichmond folks at the end of April, and Bike Month events planned for May!
