Bike store in Yorktown, VA where I can ship my bike in advance
« on: February 29, 2016, 01:53:37 am »
Can anyone recommend a particular bike store in Yorktown where I can send my bike a few days in advance of starting a TransAm?  I'm hoping the bike store would be willing to receive my bike, unpack it, and fine-tune it, so that it's ready for me to pick up and start pedaling.
Many thanks,
Lachlan

Lachlan I had the same question so I just did a search - just now- from the forums opening screen I searched for "Yorktown shop" and got a whole page of what looks like previous similar questions.

I see that yours is just now asked but not yet answered So thought to mention my search to help you get started.  When are you departing?

I used Red Barn Bikes which is not exactly in Yorktown, but it's a nice ride from there to Yorktown as a warm-up.  And they picked me up from the airport in Richmond!

Super awesome and highly recommend it!

And if you get hooked on bike shops in old, red barns, this place is on the Old Dabry Rd. Alternative of the TransAm in Hamilton, MT, or you can get there via paved roads (MT 38 and Sleeping Child Rd.) off of U.S. 93 just south/east of the center of Hamilton:

Nice group of people.

Wondering whether anyone has shipped their bike to BikeBeat in Yorktown in readiness for starting the TransAm in Yorktown. Looking at the Web, they have a location in Yorktown at 119A Village Avenue.
Thanks,
