For the past 15 years, Arleigh Greenwald has been dancing with the bike industry. Her first job at the age of 15 was installing kickstands and changing flat tires at a bike shop in Annapolis, Maryland. Since then, she has either been working in bike shops, managing brands or as a marketing consultant. In 2010, she created Bike Shop Girl as a website and online community focused on empowering women and families in cycling. Helping fill a void for a much-needed voice educating and advocating for women and novice cyclists in the industry. In 2018, Arleigh started the very popular bike industry podcast - Shift Up. Through many interviews and hours talking with some of the brightest minds, she heard deeply a calling to provide a "third place" family-focused bike shop to remove barriers to get more people on bikes. After months of research, she decided it was time to take action and create the bike shop she always wanted for her community.
Opening in the fall of 2018, our family is opening a family and transportation-focused store with the mission of "Connecting communities by bike."
This bicycle shop is for our family and yours.
We are motivated by the love for our children
And to create a better world for them.
We believe the bicycle is a change agent no matter who you are,
And it is the solution to many of the problems of the world.
We aim to provide you with the best biking experience,
Setting the bar high while removing social and physical barriers.
We are creating the change we want to see,
so our community is a safe and inviting place to raise our families.
This is Bike Shop Girl.
We will be open 5 days a week, Tues - Sat so that we can focus on providing excellent customer service and a high-quality experience. Sundays are for bike rides and Mondays are for family. We will have available service and bike test ride appointments on both days.
