718 Cyclery invented Bike Shop Day in 2017. The 2018 installment (12/1/18) had 312 shops from 47 states and 7 countries participating!
Bike Shop Day (www.bikeshopday.com) serves to connect the independent bike shop and our community as a beacon of inclusiveness, a healthy lifestyle and sustainable local business practices.
2018 Bike Shop Day
For this year's event (12/1/18), we are asking all participating shops and vendors to submit a proposal for an event that serves to welcome people who are underrepresented in the cycling industry.
“We had a much larger than anticipated platform when we launched Bike Shop Day in December 2017”, says 718 Cyclery Owner Joe Nocella. “After the event, we decided that perhaps we can use this platform to help move the needle in the direction of diversity and inclusion in the cycling Industry”.
