The independent bicycle shop world is changing quickly. So how does a shop that’s been around for four plus decades adapt? That’s part of what The Gravel Lot discusses with local shop owner, Geoff Thielmeyer who represents the second generation of ownership of his dad’s shop.
It should go without saying, but thanks to The Gravel Lot for figuring out a way to turn our left over review product into funding for the local kids CX program! Excited to see where this goes in the future, and figuring out additional ways to give back.
Episode 35: Geoff Thielmeyer, owner of Team Cycling and Fitness in Cincinnati, let us come hang out and talk about growing up in a bike shop, taking over the family business, and why thinking outside the box as a bike shop is the key to long-term success.
