Exciting news as Open Bicycle celebrates it’s Grand Opening tomorrow with deals, demonstrations, and parties. Open Bicycle is about an inch outside of Union Square, and even better, about 300 feet from my house, on Washington and Hawkins. They join Metro Pedal Power (even closer to me) and The Dutch Bicycle Company as the newest members of what bike aficionados should (but probably don’t) call Bike Mile. You know, like Auto Mile?
The Bicycle Exchange, Broadway Bicycle School, ATA Cycle, Park Sales, Ace Wheelworks, and Paramount Bicycle, Cambridge Bicycle Shop, and the 3 shops above, are all jammed into a little Cambridge/Somerville corridor making it possible to visit all of them in one swoop if you’re so inclined.
