CycleSport Ellicott City [closing and sale]

[B' Spokes: From their Facebook page... so sad, I wish them the best of luck in the future.]
Hello Bike Shop Friends!

It is with regret that I am announcing CycleSport EC will be closing its doors.

It has been an amazing and personally satisfying 21 years.

Although sad, I would prefer to focus on the good times. The friendships made with customers and co-workers alike. I am proud and overwhelmingly pleased to say 21 years of employees still keep in touch, stopping by the shop to help out and keep in contact. It’s kind of cool that three former associates are now running their own bike shops or building custom frames.

I’ll remember Mike, Christian, Sean, and Dave teaching Alex to ride a two wheeler out back. I’ll remember welcoming third generation children of longtime customers coming in with parents and grandparents to acquire the freedom of that first ride. I’ll miss our Christmas Eve open house.

I’ll never forget the help and caring Mickey, Harris, Maria, Nick, Easton, Dave, Sean, Lisa, Mike, Christian, Rick, Mark, Ben, Damon, Donald, Ed, Joey, Phil, Steve, and Ken (I know I missed some of you) were and are to the shop. I couldn’t have made it 21 years without you. Thank You.

I’ll miss selling Giant bicycles, the best bikes on the planet. I’ll miss the people at Giant; they are a brilliant crew designing amazing bikes and gear.

I’ll miss my customers, especially those who have become and remained friends throughout the years. Purchasing your first bike from me was awesome. But you’ll never know the satisfaction I felt when I was entrusted with your second, third or even fourth bike. Or even more, you trusted me with bikes for your children. It has been a rich and rewarding experience knowing all of you.

I’ll miss my fellow Independent Bicycle Dealers and hope we all continue to support them over the Big Box bike stores and the faceless internet sellers.

So, to all of you: Co-workers and customers alike: Thank You from the bottom of my heart for these past 21 years. It has been the best ride imaginable.

I don’t know what the next chapter in my life holds, so if anyone has a suggestion I’m ready to listen! I’ve been told I am setting up a personal FB account and I’m hoping you’ll friend me there and keep in touch.

We’ll be running a closeout sale beginning today until….. So please stop by and reminisce, say see you later--not goodbye-- and pick up some good deals.

It has truly been my pleasure, take care and ride safe.
