Nice to see a town actively soliciting bicycling services! But running a bike shop is a hard job, and I doubt one could survive on transient riders coming through while touring.

Inferring from available clues, it appears we are talking about Chester, Illinois. It's a nice little town. I liked it.

Has anyone ever heard anything back from the putative town?  I haven't.
