Longmont bike shop closing

My very good friend and cycling advocate Buzz Feldman in Longmont, Colorado is closing up shop after 23 years in the bike business. High Gear Cyclery on Main @ 5th will close in a couple of weeks.

Buzz teaches LAB Road 1 Class in Longmont Buzz is very active in local and statewide bike advocacy, winning Bicycle Colorado's first Lifetime Achievement Award in 2007. Shortly after he became a League of American Bicyclists Certified Instructor he taught the Road 1 class to his entire ship staff. He gives tremendously to the local community in time, cash and supplies. He's in charge of the local Safe Routes to School Program. For over 20 years Buzz collected old bikes, reconditioned them and donated them to children for Christmas.

Read about it in the Longmont Times Call. And here's a picture of Beau, the shop dog.

  1. Dang. We purchased a RANS recumbent there a few years ago. Sorry to see them go.
