Spoke-N-Sport Bikes of Sioux Falls is expanding to Brookings, and its operators say they are excited to meet the needs of a growing community of bicyclists.
Staff are moving into the new location at 503 N. Main Ave. in downtown Brookings through September and will be open for service starting next Friday, Oct. 6.
Brittany Kleinsasser and John Berry will manage Spoke-N-Sport’s second location. Both are well-known local bicyclists and heavily invested in the area bicycling community.
“We are thrilled to serve the Brookings community,” owner Chad Pickard said. “There is a lot of growth that surrounds cycling in the town and the area.”
Pickard recognizes the momentum for bicycling in the community. He says the growth is evident in the new facilities and investment from the city of Brookings.
Within the past year, Brookings received a Bronze Bicycle Friendly Community designation from the League of American Bicyclists. Brookings Mountain Bike Association opened a new mountain bike singletrack trail in summer 2017, and the city of Brookings has enacted a new long-range bicycle master plan.
Spoke-N-Sport Brookings will be open six days a week and offer new bicycles and gear, custom bike fitting and service on all makes of bikes. Customers will find bikes and gear from Giant, Trek and Salsa.
