Biking In Wichita, Get ready

It’s time to start thinking about getting your bicycle tuned up and ready for Spring.  I know just the place to go.

Heartland cycle and fitness company.

A quaint little bike shop off the brick street Mosely in Oldtown, Wichita Kansas.  The proprietor is really knowledgeable about bikes and has a good selection of parts and extras. It seems to be a busy place judging by all the bikes in for repairs and tune ups.

Kind of  reminds me of the bike repair shops in Denmark where biking is a way of life, the preferred and most used mode of transportation.

We ride a lot and push for more paths and bicycle  friendly  streets here in Wichita, as it is with the more progressive cities across America. These establishments encourage cycling therefore we like to support them.

You might be able to save a couple dollars at Wallmart, but it’s not worth it.  Shopping here and chatting with the owner is just fun, and if you need a tuneup this is the place to go. Some of the sporting good stores offer this but your likely to end up worse off than you were. Point is, trust your safety to the professionals.
