Dear Members,

With increasing Internet sales of bikes, components and apparel, along with a major new high-end bike manufacturer from Europe, about to enter the USA market this Spring with direct sales to customers, the business of owning a profitable local bike shop in 2018, has become more challenging than ever.  Unless we are in their "bike shoes", we never really know what's going on behind the scenes. Please join us at our next club meeting this coming Tuesday, at Connolly's, to hear from Shepard Grinker, owner of Tenafly Bicycle Workshop (TBW), who will enlighten us and tackle the topic of: The Challenges and Joys of Owning a Bike Shop in 2018 (The Good, The Bad and The Funny). Our friends at TBW will also be the meeting's sponsor. Here is an introduction directly from Shepard:

"With the recent closing of bike shops in the tri-state area, Tenafly Bicycle Workshp (TBW) has managed to grow our business. I will be discussing how we not only have brought the bike shop back from the dead, but have managed to make the shop a destination location for our customers. I will also be discussing how TBW has created a community around the shop, and how we have focused on community and youth programs. Above all else, we sees cycling advocacy as our primary focus."
