Bikers anxious for the arrival of downtown's new Cincinnati Bike Center will have to contain their excitement for a few more days, according to a post this morning on Queen City Bike's Facebook page.
The center has been set to launch its grand opening on Tuesday, May 1, but shipping complications, safety issues and some ongoing construction is reportedly to blame for a five-day postponement. The center is now set to open on Sunday, May 6.
The grand opening event scheduled for May 1 will still take place on Sunday. Events will include:
• 10 percent off memberships all day
• Free rentals
• Free parking • Free ABC safety checks • Lunchtime ride • Evening ride • Raffle
The Cincinnati Bike Center is the third project of Bike and Park, following state-of-the-art already-existing bike centers located in Chicago and Santa Monica, Calif. The center will include a number of different bike models available for rent, showering and changing facilities, lockers, bike tours and an in-house mechanic.
