In service. Always.
We've been in more than one tight spot since 1972. We've faced financial, political, and, with COVID, existential crises. Over and over, those crises have shown us who we are, and what's ultimately important. For us, it comes down to two basic tenets:
1) Love's the higher law. We don't shout our politics, but if we are called to make a political statement, we will always side with love.
2) We are here to serve. In our tiny place on the planet we have one thing to offer, and that is service--to our employees, to our customers, and to our community. That means we'll do anything within our power to keep people riding their bikes. It's how we serve, and what we give.
