The Bike Cave Voted as HWC's Bike Friendly Business

Congratulations to us! The Health and Wellness Coalition of Wichita has named us a Bike Friendly Business in Wichitawesome Wichita, Kansas. Albeit we didn't do much except love bicycles, work on bikes, love bikes, sell bikes, give away bikes, love bikes, and host clinics all about bikes. Did I mention that we love bikes? Good. I wanted to make that clear. The Bike Cave gladly rubs shoulders with such local businesses as Picasso's PizzeriaThe AnchorWichita Pottery, and many other great locations.

As mentioned in previous posts, the HWC has been a major advocate this past month in promoting bicycle riding for recreational and commuting purposes. We're both saddened and relieved that Bike Month is over, but we look forward to planning more helpful events for next year. Look forward to many of our future Maintenance Clinics to keep your cycling momentum going as well as opportunities to meet our staff at future fundraising events. The Bike Cave is hosting a basic Maintenance Clinic next Wednesday, June 6th, 5pm. Thanks again to the Health and Wellness Coalition of Wichita for their recognition.
