Bike Wars?

Sometimes its the little pieces in the Daily News that speaks loudly.

There is a new bicycle shop in town that offers rentals and is near the waterfront. I wondered if Riverside Cycle felt threatened but when I inquired, they seemed non-plus. Well, that was because they were under the process of outmaneuvering the new guy on the block!

In a surprise move, they opened up a bike rental facility at Haley’s Ice Cream for those getting off the train. A clever move.

Now I frankly have no idea what market there is for rental bikes but I do know that if you have a bicycle – this is the town to ride around!

Is there enough demand to create some rivalry?

We’ll all have to watch and see as the summer progresses.
