The business and work culture of Bike Shop Hub in all it's glory.

When we have new products, sales, weird marketing ideas, commentary on the cycling industry, or embarrasing photos of of the staff, this is where you'll find it.

And since we are located in Arizona, we'll talk about the cycling scene in the state.

Send In Your Cycling Photos

We get to see and touch and test all sorts of great cycling gear here at our world headquarters. But we actually get to meet very few of our customers in person.

We just know you are out there taking pictures of your amazing cycling adventures. We want to see them! The best ones will be shared on the relevant section of this blog: Bike Cargo Trailers, Bike Touring, Bike Technology and Family Cycling.

Bike Show in Holland

I’ve just returned back from my first trip to the Netherlands with the CELLO for the Fietsvakantiebeurs, a two day cycle touring specific show. It was very inspiring to see such enthusiasm for cycle touring and traveling products and the CELLO was very well received.

While in the Netherlands, I had a chance to explore both by foot and on bike. I was amazing to experience how cycling is integrated into everyday life there. It all begins with an incredible infrastructure of bike paths that go down nearly every street with their own traffic lights. There are excellent facilities for bike parking and bike rentals. Excellent bike maps are available to guide you through the city and countryside. The majority of bikes are rugged hub geared city bikes, nothing fancy but long-lasting easy to ride bikes for getting around the city. Everyone rides bikes as well from business men, to moms with 2-3 kids on board to school children. From an American perspective it was quite enlightening to see and anyone involved with developing cycling infrastructure in the US needs to take a trip.
