Owner Chris Heslin has experience with bikes from working as the mountain bike manager at Wilderness Adventure at Eagle Landing in Craig County.
He said he sought to bring a bike rental shop to the area because he wants to see riders utilize the nearby greenway that starts at Vic Thomas Park, and because the Grandin area has bike paths, but no bike shops.
His fleet of KHS Bicycles will include cruisers, hybrids, tandems, children’s bikes, trailers, and baby seats. While the store won’t sell bicycles, it will sell cycling accessories. (Update: Heslin tells me that the store will be a full service shop and although it won’t have an inventory of bicycles for sale, he can order bicycles for anyone looking to make a purchase.)
The shop will be at least the second the business to rent bicycles on the greenway. Bob Welsh operates River Greenway Bicycle Rental out of Wasena Park on weekends from April to October.
