It’s been a great ride. After 17 years as the owner of Capitol Hill Bikes I have made the decision to retire and close the store.
I am truly grateful to the Capitol Hill community for welcoming a brand new bike shop in 2000 and for forgiving our missteps along the way. I am also grateful to the many, many people who gave of their labors to make Capitol Hill Bikes the best bike shop in the area.
Next week we will close for a few days (our normal Tuesday but also Wednesday and Thursday) to get ready for the retirement store closing sale. We will reopen on October 7 and remain open until our inventory and fixtures are gone. We will also be finishing the repairs and special orders we currently have in the store but we will stop taking new ones after October 1. If you have a bike in the store, I urge you to pick it up asap
For the first week of the sale we will keep our normal hours but please check our website or Facebook for changes in our hours as the sale progresses.
Thank you for being such loyal customers of Capitol Hill Bikes over the years.
All the best!
