Ribbon Cutting at 359 State Street
Today was a ribbon cutting for the new “pop up” bike shop at 359 State Street. A few folks from GreenTown were in attendance. A pop up store, for those of you who are wondering, is temporary. Jeff Selzer, general manager of Palo Alto Bicycles and founder of Bike Arc, who runs 359 State Street, said they would be at that location for up to 12 months.
Mayor Packard cuts the ribbon
The store has a nice gathering area at the back with a big screen TV. Everyone is welcome to come hang out, drink Peet’s coffee and talk about bikes. Mayor Ron Packard had a few kind words to say about Los Altos being a great area in which to bike and Jeff added that the City of Los Altos just received Bicycle Friendly Community status at the bronze level, but should go for silver or even gold! That got some nice applause from the crowd.
