718 Cyclery invented Bike Shop Day in 2017. The 2018 installment had 312 shops from 47 states and 7 countries participating!
Bike Shop Day serves to connect the Independent Bike Shop and our community as a beacon of inclusiveness, a healthy lifestyle and sustainable local business practices.
The planning for Bike Shop Day 2018 began the day after Bike Shop Day 2017. We created a new website that made the mission clear and the ability for other shops to sign up quick and easy. It must have been very clear, quick and easy as 312 shops in 47 states and 7 countries signed up.
For the day at 718, we had a great day of event planned, including Disc Golf, a sale, a DY, a raffle and the famed Prize Wheel. We also had a Women’s/GNC Class.
A Bike Shop Day tradition is taking a crew portrait.
It was an amazing day at the shop, and we’re glad to have shared it with so many other like-minded independent businesses. See you all on 12/7/19 for the next Bike Shop Day
