On Wednesday, August 14th 2019, we were fortunate to have Steve Vaccaro and Adam White (of Vaccaro and White) come and speak to the community about issues involving the law and cyclists in NYC.
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.
At 718, we believe that being able to conquer the next Adventure is more about what’s inside of you, as opposed to having the most expensive gear. Our Adventures have always aimed to “lower the barriers” of entry, with the goal of creating adventures that are attainable, diverse and inclusive.
Sometimes, in the winter, it can get a little lonesome at the shop. We keep the same hours year-round, but the staff gets spread out a little thinner, so consequently I have time in the shop on my own. Normally, that time is spent pounding away on the Microsoft Surface keyboard, but this morning was different.
After recently getting Wilderness First Aid Certified, I want back and took a hard look at my First Aid Kit we use on Shop Rides, Hikes, Camping Trips, Micro-Tours and Tours.
We had a great time hosting the LifeCycle Holiday party at the shop last night.
On November 30, Genesiss or Brujofnyc (professional NYC Messenger) gave a talk and demonstration of winter riding techniques in the shop.
