Bike Shop Day was conceived in 2017 is the brainchild of Joe Nocella and the staff of 718 Cyclery in Brooklyn, where the original event was held last year.
Bike Shop Day is a way to celebrate and promote the unique culture of independently owned bicycle stores, and their role in local communities as a beacon of inclusiveness, a healthy lifestyle and sustainable local business practices.
Since its inception a little over a year ago, Bike Shop Day has gained a wider following among independent bicycle stores. Each store participated in their own way that best reflects their unique character and relationship with their community. We’re excited to join in again this year!
We’re looking forward to throwing our doors open to the community on first Saturday in December, and we’re busy planning a fun-filled day for everyone. Here’s a preview of the day’s festivities:
