A New Location and New Look for Battenkill Bicycles
By Melanie Oliva
Battenkill Bicycles (BkB) has moved to a new location to better serve you! The one-stop shop for biking is now located at 99 Bonnet Street and continues to offer the Manchester and surrounding area the same sales, service, repair, and professional fitting for both road and mountain bikes.
The full-service bike shop, in addition to specializing in tune-ups and repairs, also offers bike rentals to both beginner and expert bicyclists, and everyone in between. The all-inclusive price includes a bike, a helmet, and BkB’s knowledgeable advice for bike routes and trails.
Besides being known for great service and well-rounded expertise, the staff at the spruced-up new shop is involved in community building as well. Free, guided rides are scheduled weekly; bicyclists of every level are encouraged to meet at the shop at 5:30 pm on Thursdays to join other enthusiasts for local, social rides.
Another event service worth exploring is their charitable bike swaps. It is an economical and beneficial way to swap out your old bike for a new one, bring home a new bike for your growing child, or simply a way to make a little bit of cash. Successful sellers and buyers are asked to make a cash donation, which goes in its entirety to the Community Food Cupboard. Getting rid of an old bike, adopting a new one, and supporting the food cupboard—a win-win for everyone!
With summer in full swing, it is the perfect time to stop by the store!
