A Bike Shop for the Triangle

District Hardware/The Bike Shop has signed a letter of interest with the Donohoe/Holland bid for the 5th and Eye location.

The Arts and 5th and I blog had this to say:

We’re happy to announce the newest member of our team – District Hardware/The Bike Shop! Neil Conway, President of District Hardware/The Bike Shop signed a Letter of Interest with The Arts at 5th & I team earlier today.

District Hardware/The Bike Shop has been a local institution in D.C. for 37 years. They were the first True Value hardware store in Washington, D.C.

Neil Conway, the second generation of this D.C. family business, incorporated The Bike Shop into the business, offering bicycle and bicycle accessory sales, as well as full bike repair services.

The new location is planned to include the store’s signature mix of neighborhood hardware store and full-service bike shop.

I would imagine the store would lean much more towards the Bike Shop services than the Hardware services given the fact that the City Vista project features a hardware store.

    Well, I’m now even more sold on the Donohoe bid than I was before! I’ve been looking for a local bike shop.

    Speaking of which, does anyone know of a good nearby bike shop?
