We’re starting a story series about our experiences here at Hub Cyclery over at Bikerumor.com
The stories will chronicle the decision making, startup, and workings of having a bike shop. We’re excited to have a broad audience at Bikerumor and will be linking to the articles here on the Hub site.
For years, my wife Mary and I had shared that dream of “someday” opening a bike shop. We had favorite bike shops we liked to visit when we were road tripping, most for a certain vibe they’d possessed, and others for their technical savvy. We’d become connoisseurs of the LBS. We often talked about what we’d like to see for ourselves in that “someday” bike shop we’d open, and what sort of town we’d open it in. For me, the turns of events in my life led me to opening the Hub Cyclery in Idyllwild, California on March 1st, 2011.
Why’d I do it?
