Never Know What'll Be a Hit
One of the most memorable days for me at Global Bikes was during a little clinic we had been working on to help bring people through our doors, which is always a challenge in the summer. We invited a local dietitian to stop by to talk about her new book focusing on processed-free living. We were expecting maybe ten people and we had prepared a small area in the store for the presenter. As we got closer to the start of the clinic it was apparent we had underestimated the attendance a bit, people just kept coming in and we were bursting at the seams, throwing bikes out the door to make room for everyone. We even borrowed unused chairs from the restaurant next door for seating. Somehow we ended up fitting over 80 people into our shop and that was when we really realized how starved people were for good information. We have since added several clinics and bring in regular guest speakers and have expended our free monthly repair service clinics to offer 3 levels of difficulty. Please join us on meetup and/or check out our event calendar to keep up to date with everything we have going on!
