Many thanks to long time sponsors, The Bicycle Escape for sponsoring this week on Frederick Maryland Online.
The Bicycle Escape is pleased to announce its relocation to 7820-E Wormans Mill Road, across from Wegman’s in the Clemson Corner Shopping Center. “The move has been a little bittersweet as we have made a lot of good friends in our previous location, but in order to better serve our customers we needed a larger facility,” said Tom Rinker, owner. The new shop provides a more spacious floor plan and a new state of the art service center, which will allow us to give our customers exactly what they deserve—the very best,” Rinker said.
“We were going through some major growing pains in the old shop,” stated Danielle Rinker, Tom’s wife and co-owner of The Bicycle Escape. “Our space for new products was becoming non-existent and we needed to do something, and then Clemson Corner was built and it fits our needs perfectly,” she added.
In the new store customers will find more specialized inventory and a greater variety of bikes and bicycling accessories. “What has not changed, however, is our commitment to our customers, our willingness to offer advice, and help each person choose the best possible bike for his or her needs,” Rinker said, adding, “We’d also like to expand our restoration service. It’s wonderful to see the joy on a person’s face when they see their old and rusty beloved bike after it has been transformed to its original style and beauty,” Rinker noted.
The new store is welcoming, with its brightly painted walls and fully stocked shelves. Roger Rinker, the store’s manager, stated, “The new shop looks great and I am so excited to be a part of it. Our customers are fantastic and I love how supportive they have been through the moving process and our staff has gone above and beyond to make certain that everything was ready for opening day.”
“I can only imagine a bright future in our new location,” Tom Rinker remarked. “We have been greeted so warmly by the center’s management, fellow merchants, and the public that I can only see this as a positive step forward for our business,” he added.
In addition to owning the bike shop, the Rinker’s and their employees are passionate about cycling and their community. Tom is a founder and president of the bicycle advocacy group, The Frederick Bicycle Coalition, which promotes a more bicycle friendly Frederick, as well as bicycle safety and awareness.
